Bleu Chocolat Cafe
Bleu Chocolat Cafe comes to Jacksonville by way of Tortola, British Virgin Islands. Owner and acclaimed Pastry Chef Erika Cline is a James Beard alum who has been featured in numerous television and print media outlets over her career. Cline opened Bleu Chocolat, a bean to bar chocolate boutique, in Tortola in 2012. After last year’s devastating hurricane season demolished Cline and her husband’s two restaurants and chocolate shop in Tortola, Cline seized the opportunity to bring her artistry and expertise to Jax. Our city has truly gained a gem in Chef Erika Cline. Her cafe, Bleu Chocolat Cafe, will be opening in Springfield in the coming weeks, featuring a coffee and chocolate bar, fresh pastries and desserts, a quick service restaurant, and her bean to bar chocolates.
Chaunie’s Coffee & Such
Chaunie’s Coffee is a new coffee truck making mornings brighter for folks all over Jax. Their coffee beans are carefully and specifically sourced and they offer special touches like their housemade vanilla cream. All of their pastries are made fresh by hand with love.
This tiniest breakfast and lunch spot in Jax has a cult following of faithful customers who daily come through the drive through only eatery. Breakfast and lunch sandwiches and a rotating dessert menu keep Liberty Bakery buzzing on the corner of Bowden and Parental Home Roads. Customer favorites include the weekly cheesecake, macarons, and cookies you woulda sworn your grandma baked.
Known for their elaborate sugar cookies, MaddyD’s is a local cookie and sweet shop you can find around town or custom order from.
