I really recommend this place- they are usually full but their service is fast. Their bread and the entire menu is fresh and delicious! It is a good place for breakfast as well. You won’t regret it.

The French Pantry has some of the best French food in Florida. It is only open for lunch and the line forms before opening. Well worth the wait and a great menu.

Love the quiche and, of course, the bread! Give yourself some extra time as lot of people love this place, so the line can get a bit long. But, worth the wait.

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!
