Lunch in Jacksonville is more than a meal, it’s an opportunity to break out of the busy day’s routine and recharge your batteries. What better way to get your mind off of the stressors of the daily grind than at one of the “River City’s” tastiest lunch-time retreats?
Jacksonville’s Southern roots inspire local regional fare in more ways than one. At The French Pantry guests line up around the building for their chance to dine on farm fresh creations like daily sandwiches specials, their famous Bruschetta, and decadent pastries. If your lunch break finds you downtown check out Olio for “lunch done differently”. You’ll discover elevated classics like the Duck Grilled Cheese and Deep Dish Quiche while sipping on fresh ginger ale in their loft style digs.
The classic burger joint gets a facelift at M Shack, the Bold City’s homegrown gourmet burger spot. Taste all natural hormone free beef prepared fresh daily into creations like Medurable, and the Cross-fit burger. If your taste buds seek something more delicate nibble on tasty bite-sized sandwiches, and desserts at Ashes Boutique and Tea Garden in an intimate setting ideal for your next mid-day escape.
Whether it’s elevated classics, cafe favorites or eclectic combinations you crave, this list will lead you to what you seek. Experience the taste of Jacksonville’s finest foodie destinations at a lunch-time price point that won’t break the bank.
