The Parisian-inspired cafe Le Petit Paris plans to expand to the Baymeadows neighborhood of Jacksonville at 7111 Bentley Road this year, according to a lease signed this week.
There is no definitive timeline of opening at this location, however it will likely be later in 2023.
Authentic French macarons, baguette sandwiches, quiche, croissants, salads and coffee are the majority of the menu offered at Le Petit Paris. According to its website, Parisian goods are even shipped to the store for retail sale in the market section of the restaurant.
“Enjoy the aromas of fresh baked pastries that fill the air while you overlook the menu with specialty items that include famous dishes from the south of France. Beautiful displays of retail goods also available from France,” the website states.
There are two current locations of Le Petit Paris, one in Mandarin which opened in 2019 and one in Atlantic Beach which opened in 2021. French-born founder and owner Alex Chezaud is behind the expansion. What Now Jacksonville reached out for comment but did not immediately hear back.
“We have enjoyed serving the Jacksonville community and have received so much love and support. We are on a mission to continue to deliver high quality food and exceptional customer service,” Le Petit Paris states on its website.
