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

The best in Jacksonville. Get there early. Big tables and seat people together. Fresh everything!!! Try the bruschetta, it is my favorite. Don't be put off by location or building. It is about the food and not atmosphere!!

It's a local gem. Don't be dismayed by the lines. You can only sit after your order is placed so tables clear rather quickly. Save room for dessert. The "wedding cake" with strawberry purée is not to be missed.

The lines are long, but the food is the most incredible thing you'll put in your mouth! 😍😍😍 Ordering dessert is a must! Tip: place a Togo order around 10am and save yourself the wait.

Wonderful salads and sandwiches. Complex flavors. Very fresh. Good textures. Not a convenient neighborhood. Always a line, but the food is so good, I never regret going there. Try the shrimp, goat cheese bruschetta salad.

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!
