This little jewel is a can't miss in Jacksonville. It's only open for lunch and it's small, busy, and not the place for a quick bite, but one of a kind. It's always crowded which is what you would expect from a great restaurant. I...More

The food is fantastic. Their bang, bang shrimp salad is to die for. Their pastries will melt in your mouth. Sometimes you have to wit in line to get in, but it is worth he wait.

Fantastic food. Small, cozy atmosphere. Family owned and run. Be prepared to take half your order home due to the large portions. Don't forget to take some dessert or bread home to those who didn't get to come.

You definitely will not regret eating at the French Pantry. The food is excellent, great soups & sandwiches. You absolutely must try the wedding cake. It is one of the best cakes I have ever had!

Get there early four children, because the lines get long near noon. Great sandwiches on old world-style bakery breads. If you are light eaters, sharing is a good option. Great desserts also!

Excellent and tasty food. Different types of fresh bread and sandwiches make this place unique. The shrimp salad with avocado or the sandwich are right at the top of their offerings. For desert, the are so many "Yum Yum" choices.

The bakery has expanded and renovated the eating area. The decor is very nice and quaint. The food is amazing. The only negative thing is the long wait in the sun (45-1 hour). They do have a very small shaded area with free lemonade or...More

You can't make reservations. But, they do accommodate large groups, if you call ahead and tell them how many are planned. I've been to a couple Meetups there where they made accommodations.

I heard that it was sold, but haven't heard any word on a new location. So sad to see the original owners leave. They're a hard act to follow!
