The French Pantry (Jacksonville, FL)

Hi Dolls,


  I have been hearing so many great things about     The French Pantry, a bakery/cozy restaurant known for  providing bread to several local restaurants and fabulous food for its patrons. Unfortunately they are only open from 11am-2pm Monday through Friday and if you’re going to go you’d better get there early to avoid waiting in a never-ending line.  This was my last Monday off for a little while so I thought today would be a perfect day to give it a go! 

Just wanted to show you the line again! Crazy I know, and it’s like this from 11-2 non-stop!                     

Good Eats!!!

 For starters we were given  fresh, hot, crusty, chewy french bread and olive oil infused with balsamic vinegar and tasty herbs!

Let me just tell you this is hands down, the BEST Bruschetta I have ever eaten in my life!!!  It was made with their yummy crusty bread, goat cheese, succulent shrimp, and artichokes on top of a bed of fresh greens and tomatoes!

 The French Dip Sandwich was made with tender slices of well-seasoned beef and gooey mozarella cheese!  The Au Jus was perfectly savory….made you wanna dip the entire sandwich to the bottom!  LOL!

The Chicken Panini looked amazing!  It has chicken, mozarella, tomatoes, greens, and proscuitto!  YUMM!!!

And last but not least the assortment of desserts range from cookies, to eclairs, to carrot cake, and much more.  We shared on slice of the “Wedding Cake” which was a decadent white cake with cream cheese frosting infused with fresh strawberries on a strawberry puree!  It was very good!!!

The French Pantry gets 2 thumbs up from me!!!  Everything I tasted was phenomenal and the prices were more than reasonable!!!  Hope everyone has a FABULOUS week!!!

XOXO

    Looks delicious!I am back from Vegas and I have to thank you for recommending Bouchon's at the Venetian! I had eaten at Picasso at the Bellagio and was near broke and so disappointed in the food. I tried Bouchon's and it was so delicious and didn't break the bank. 5 star dinning for a reasonable price.The Wanderfull Traveler
