What kind of restaurant is The Bread & Board?
Think of The Bread & Board as equal parts fun-loving sandwich shop and fine dining kitchen.
The Bread & Board is an independently owned, fast casual restaurant located in Jacksonville’s Five Points neighborhood. We think of our restaurant as equal parts fun-loving sandwich shop and fine dining kitchen. By drawing inspiration from classic deli sandwiches and using premium, house-made ingredients, we deliver a dining experience that is approachable and affordable.
Where did the name “The Bread & Board” come from?
Owners Jonathan Cobbs and Dwayne Beliakoff were inspired by the idea of putting a twist on the idea of the classic sandwich shop. Their vision was to expand the essential components of a great sandwich — cured meats, artisan cheeses, fresh ingredients, and baked-in-house bread— into a flexible format akin to a charcuterie board. Hence, the name “The Bread & Board” was born.
What kind of food does The Bread & Board serve?
We proudly serve sandwiches and sandwich boards made with our baked-in-house bread, as well as fresh salads, made-from-scratch sides, and entrées inspired by our travels around the world. Options change seasonally to showcase ingredients at their peak flavor. For anything we can’t make in-house, we partner with purveyors who share our commitment to time-tested preparation techniques that let the ingredients do the talking.
What is a sandwich board?
A sandwich board contains slightly larger portions of the ingredients in our sandwiches, served in the style of a charcuterie board with house-made bread rolls. Sandwich boards are great for sharing, or for enjoying the flavors of your favorite handheld sandwich with a fork and a knife instead.
What is a house board?
Our house boards are meant to serve as appetizers or accouterments to your meal.
Do you offer gluten-free, vegetarian, or vegan menu options?
We are happy to serve any of our boards without bread for guests who are abstaining from gluten as a dietary choice; however, we cannot guarantee that items prepared in our kitchen will be free of exposure to flour because our bread is made fresh daily.
We serve several dishes that are vegetarian, and our rotating menu always includes at least one vegan option,
Please let our team members know if you have questions about our ingredients, preparation methods, or ability to accommodate special dietary needs or restrictions.
Does The Bread & Board serve dinner?
We sure do! Our main menu is available every Monday through Saturday. Additionally, our chefs create rotating lunch and dinner entrée specials every day. Our sandwich boards are very popular during dinner service, as they allow our guests to enjoy their favorite sandwich ingredients as an entrée that can be enjoyed with a fork and knife.
Is The Bread & Board a family friendly restaurant?
We welcome guests of all ages. A kid’s menu is available upon request. Children (or future foodies, as we like to call them) tend to gravitate toward our lawn, where they can play while mom and dad watch from a nearby table. We also happily provide mini chef hats, lanterns, and blankets for our younger guests to enjoy a picnic with their families.
