5. Saigon Time.
622 Cassat Ave #1  Jacksonville, FL 32205
(904) 378-2348

Vietnamese restaurant on Cassat.  Pretty much everything is brilliant and authentic, (also Pho Ha Noi on Blanding.)

6.  The French Pantry on Powers Avenue.  
6301 Powers Ave  Jacksonville, FL 32217
(904) 730-8696

Easily the best bakery in Florida. Food quality is extremely high, and the execution is both brilliant and flavorful.  No other lunch place in the city compares, even remotely to the tiny claustrophobic little dining room that they have in the bakery. Simply cannot have enough.
