People are waiting inline before the opening. Plan accordingly & get there before 11. This is a bakery with a lunch restaurant. Everything is delish! My husband I get a bruschetta salad to split, then we can get a dessert to split too, a basket...More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the FP. The food was exceptional. I've never had bruschetta served in such a beautiful presentation and so delicious.

No matter what you order from the menu, it will taste really GOOD. I've been coming here for years, and have never had a bad meal. It's all in the fresh, wholesome ingredients used to make everything. You won't be disappointed.

This restaurant is well with wait in the line. The food is just mouthwatering. The bread they serve to everyone is delicious.

I would visit this restaurant more often if I didnt have time constraints. Realistically, you will have to plan 1 1/2 to 2 hours because it is so popular. The quality of the food makes the wait bearable! I have never had anything I didnt...More

I got there before they opened and waited in line for a table. I can be shy and socially awkward so when they sat a couple of strangers at our table, I was a little nervous. No need; I didn't even talk to them because...More

This place is essentially a small cafe attached to a giant bakery. The bakery supplies many of the Jax restaurants with their bread, so all the breads in the meals are straight out of the oven. Arrive before 12 or after 1 to avoid long...More

Best lunch spot in jax, hands down. Not in the best location, or building, but don't let that fool you. The only problem is that you will want to eat it all the time and they are only open weekdays for lunch!

So I have to say that the food is worth the wait. You know the place HAS to be good when people start lining up at the door sometimes and hour and a half before the place even opens! So their flat breads are an...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.
