Great little spot tucked away on the Southside of Jax. Been there many times and it never disappoints!! Wide variety on the menu from soups to sandwiches to salads and amazing desserts! Can't wait to go back.

Absolutely outstanding, but a long line to get in. That said it is well worth it. Everything I have had there is great.

Best spot for lunch, in Jax, in my opinion. The line gets long so get there early for food that never disappoints.

Typical lunch place, crowded. Food is terrific especially if you like salads. Service very good. Very crowded, long lines but when people will stand in 90 degree heat to eat lunch--must be pretty good.

So there is more to a restaurant than just food, IMO...so here goes. Food was excellent. Prices are expensive, no kids menu. Not sure what the other post is referring to about it just being renovated last month because it does not look like it....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.
