Hammers are ready to swing at The Bread & Board’s highly anticipated third location at VyStar Credit Union’s headquarters campus in Downtown Jacksonville. The restaurant, best known for its contemporary casual menu of baked in-house artisan breads and meats served as sandwiches, sandwich boards and now bowls, submitted an active construction permit on Tuesday, Oct. 27, for the downtown location and is preparing to enter the final construction phase. The project is anticipated to be completed this winter.

“We are very excited to put the finishing touches on the pre-construction phase and break ground on this new concept that will be a strong component in the revitalization of Jacksonville’s urban core,” said Dwayne Beliakoff, co-founder of The Bread & Board.

“As people begin to move back into office buildings and venture out more, we will be able to offer them a unique culinary and shopping experience with locally- and regionally-sourced foods and goods in one convenient and safe spot,” said Jonathan Cobbs, co-founder of The Bread & Board.

The project consists of 7,200 sq. ft., ground-level space, at 100 W. Bay St. Approximately 5,000 sq. ft. will be dedicated to the restaurant and 2,200 will be for the Bread & Board Provisions marketplace. A breezeway will bring outdoor seating and an open-air communal space large enough to provide room to maintain social distancing.

FLC Contracting LLC was selected as the contractor for the space and the design is being handled by Thomas Duke Architecture, P.A. in collaboration with Micamy Design.  

Those interested in getting a taste of what is to come are encouraged to stop by one of The Bread & Board’s other locations:

  • The location that started it all in Jacksonville’s Five Points neighborhood at: 1030 Oak St.

  • The newest eatery at the St. John’s Town Center at: 4413 Town Center Pkwy.
