Love love the French pantry! You can never go wrong with anything you order and dessert is a must!! Huge portions so splitting is definitely an option.

“This is must go.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2013

This is complete and total surprise. You would not believe what you are going to enjoy when you arrive at their door. You must get there early to sit together if you have a big group. They have a chalkboard menu, Large portions and the desserts are to die for, again large portions. I had the bruschetta and it was enough for two. They have great sandwiches and bring fresh bread to the table with oil for dipping. It is only open for a few hours a day. Check their schedule. I would not recommend for children.

“Went BACK to Jacksonville just to eat here a 2nd time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2013

While traveling the 4th of July I found the French Pantry on Tripadvisor.com. Was worried by the line!!! But it went very fast and it only took an hour from entering to leaving. Amazing food. Had the bruschetta, and chicken sandwich. I can't believe we rerouted our trip in order to pass through and eat there a second time! This restaurant alone will be a reason for us to return to Jacksonville again. Seriously!

“This is just a decent sandwich shop. Not number 1 restaurant in jax as Tripadvisor claims”

No doubt good food. But just an overcrowded lunch spot in an odd industrial part of town. Don't go out of your way to go there. But, stop in if your are around. It is crowded and it is self serve. No ambiance.

“The food is so scrumptious; it overwhelms any potential negative !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

Imagine driving into an industrial neighborhood, looking for a small green awning in a nondescript warehouse for the French Pantry! Most probably you notice a very long line of diners first which draws you eye followed by an involuntary expletive reflex. Fear not; the wait is worth it! The line moves reasonably quickly and affords opportunity to compare suggestions with regulars & to study the myriad of choices; all are huge portions too. Fresh bread & dipping olive oil whet you appetite while you drool over the choices of you new friends at the communal style tables in small crowded room. Very limited wine choices, beer OK, soda & tea are fine.
So, go & enjoy; keep it the gem of Jacksonville too.
Also; limited hours: 11:00-2:15 Monday-Friday only.
