No more need to drive down Philips highway for lunch! The Riverplace location will also be open Saturdays.

Coming back to DT! They had a location in the Landing a few years back.

The bread is fantastic. They have bagels, sandwiches and salads mainly, but it is always very fresh. A great place for breakfast or lunch.

Mildly related inquiry: is there anywhere in Jax that has kalaches?  Was in Houston a few weeks ago and it's all the rage apparently - and has been for some time.

^Same question about khachapuri, which grows on trees in NYC and is seemingly absent from Jacksonville.

Oh, wow!

The jalapeño kolache at Brew is delightful.  You can also order a breakfast sandwich with a kolache as a bun.  It's straight fire.

The new Escape Restaurant and Bar in Five Points has khachapuri, although I haven't been yet.

Good job picking your spots :) :) :)

If we're being honest, everything else is trivial compared to khachapuri anyway...
