A word from Biscottis
In 1993 Karin Tucker and Barbara Bredehoeft opened Biscottis as a cozy 37 seat coffee house. It quickly became a landmark success and now seats 100 in a beautiful turn of the century brick and wood interior building. Offering casual comfort, innovative cuisine (try the fabulous Sunday brunch), and with a personality all its own, the Avondale eatery has expanded to accommodate its citywide clientele. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Perfect for a last minute date night, Biscottis sat us quickly and our waiter had great recommendations from the menu. The ingredients even in a simple salad, really satisfy. Though we were too stuffed for dessert, we sat with some tea and planned our next trip there where we will be sure to try the mouth watering cakes that draw you in as soon as you walk in the door. We weren't rushed, nor were we overwhelmed by the wait staff. Prices were more than fair, too! It was a great evening, and we can't wait to go back."

  • "My wife and I had a wonderful meal for our 15th Anniversary. my wife had a special mozzarella topped fillet that was melt in your mouth tender, and I had my first Pompano fillet (I'm usually a mahi mahi or salmon kind of guy), but the pompano was out of this world. The sides were well presented, and very good. We of course couldn't even think of leaving without a trip to the dessert case. We both had a slice of confection heaven, my wife had the vanilla bean cake, and I had the mango cheesecake. Both were crazy good. Biscottis is always a great meal."

  • "It's been a while since my son and I have connected... I wanted to spend some special quality time with him, and there literally is no better spot in the Avondale community that relaxing, provides great food options and quality service... Opps almost forgot the desert menu. I love Biscotti's and always bring special people to this dinning experience."

  • "The food was amazing from the bakery all the way down to the drinks everything was fantastic my only small observation was our waiter was not the most friendliest also he forgot to bring back my husband's food that we wanted to go my husband only ate half of his breakfast sandwich and the waiter said that he would box it up for us and he never brought it back."

  • "Biscottis has always been a favorite of my husband & mine; the food is always excellent. I was a bit disappointed my favorite menu item had disappeared, one of their specialty pizzas. I think it was called the Rustica? Regardless, the food was piping hot, delicious, and the server was very attentive. Noise level as always was a bit high, but we could still have a conversation. It was busy at 12:15, as expected. There were a steady stream of customers flowing in and out. Glad to see it's still a local favorite!"

  • "I went with my girlfriend for brunch this past Saturday to celebrate Valentines Day and we were more than pleased with the food and service! From the moment we walked through the door we were greeted my such nice & sweet people. The ambience was so comfortable and relaxing. We had the seafood eggs benedict and mimosas, our food was amazing and the mimosas were even better! We absolutely loved the fruit with the mint syrup. I got one of their chocolate biscottis for dessert... yummmmm so delicious!!! I would deff reccomend this place to ANYBODYYY. Very cute little restaurant. We will be going again for sure!"

  • "Biscottis is my favorite restaurant in Avondale! Everything about it appeals to me…the food, the ambience, the wine list, etc. Wait staff is always helpful and attentive, but they don't linger too long at the table. My husband and I finished a bottle of wine without ever pouring a glass ourselves. The only complaint I have was that on Valentine's Day we were unable to order from the regular menu and the special menu that they offered was extremely limited. If you weren't a seafood person, good luck! I wouldn't have minded as much if they had mentioned this when we made our reservation. But because we are "regulars," we were expecting to be able to order "the usual" and were a bit disappointed. Otherwise, excellent evening/date night!!"

  • "Slightly disappointed after all I'd heard about this restaurant. Felt like server was rushing us, Excellent soup - red pepper and sweet potato combo, but salad was disappointing. Looked and tasted like it had been prepared hours earlier. I'd like to go back and give it another try, maybe we just hit it at a bad time. My friend and I had a reservation for lunch at 1:30, maybe too late for lunch."

  • "Always a very nice relaxing dining experience , with less common eclectic food choices. And the wait staff are always impeccable. If you like rather super deserts, or if you desire a nice capuchino, this is a choice place to go."

  • "We went to Biscotti's for a family get-together and had a really good time. There were 10 of us, including 3 children, 1 in a high chair, and the staff was very accommodating and helpful. We appreciated the variety on the menu. Some of us wanted a light meal; others were there for a big feed. There was something for all. Food quality and service were very good."

  • "My brother was treating me to a night out after Christmas and I chose Biscotti's knowing that the food and service are always wonderful. We both had a beef entree that was cooked to perfection (his black and blue rare and mine medium rare). Sauces are always complimentary, not overwhelming the flavor of the beef. We shared a wonderful bottle of wine but were too full for dessert right then, so we took home one of the outstanding pieces of cake which we enjoyed later. Service was really good too. Overall a great night out."

  • "We met friends at Biscotti's for a holiday lunch the day after Christmas. We are happy we made reservations through Open Table, otherwise we would have had to wait for every for a table. The girls had salads: the Pompano Salad was delish and the Thai Chicken salad is always a great choice! The boys had sandwiches...one loved the tuna salad sandwich, the other had soup and sandwich."

  • "From beginning to end one of the most outstanding restaurant experiences I can remember. Emily (our awesome server) led us to the Mozzarella Bruschetta and cheese plates which were an outstanding lead off to the meal. Blackened ribeyes and beef medallions were perfectly prepared and risotto was exceptional. We finished with an array of desserts and coffee. Outstanding. Oh, and the wine - also perfect. Thank you Biscottis for a great evening."

  • "Made us feel as though they were expecting us. Gave us a lovely table. One mistake they brought my wife's meal out with tomatoes, in which she asked for none. this was quickly corrected. Dessert selection was the best i ever saw. Great food is what ultimately makes a restaurant successful, This place has got it down just right."

  • "I like to visit Biscotti's when I'm in town. Their beautiful, delicious desserts are the highlight of the menu, but I've enjoyed the entrees, soups, and salads, as well. They also offer a good selection of locally brewed craft beers. I recommend the goat cheese salad and the red velvet cheesecake. Also, be sure to look for the playing cards on the ceiling!"

  • "Me and my wife stopped in for a late dinner on 11/25/13. Appetizer was the crab & artichoke fondue which was amazingly good. Wife had the chicken francaise and I had the porck chops. Though the presentation was exquisite, the chicken was soggy and the pork chop was extremely dry... and this was ordered at medium (reccomendation from the waiter). We did leave with several pieces of cake from the bakery which were absolutely delicious as usual."

  • "I've lived in Jacksonville all my life, and have heard people speak of Biscottis, but I'd never dined there. I had company from out of town and was looking for a good Sunday Brunch place. I chose Biscottis after doing an online search for Brunch spots in Jax. There were 5 in my party and we all got something different from the menu - We ALL loved every SINGLE bite. Delicious food!! I'm looking forward to my next visit!"
