I've eaten at all of the European Street locations and have always found the quality of the food to be consistent, with decent service. They offer a varied selection of salads, wraps and sandwiches and have a very good offering of vegan

I've enjoyed the opportunity to visit the European Street Cafe on Park Street twice since beginning work on McDuff. The exterior is cheerful and eccentric, bright and inviting. The interior is comfortable and fairly handsome, if a bit crowded. Being crowded, however, is a quality that has been hard earned by this restaurant.

People swear by the beer and cheese soup (and so does the restaurant, the beams that cross below the ceiling proclaiming its beer and cheese soup as simply being a part of enjoying life). I, however, have yet to sample this. My experiences have been confined to a deliciously spicy pita that is known as the "Bad Hombre," which is filled with plenty of scrumptious roast beef, veggies, and a spicy hot sauce. That sandwich fits those that favor a robust and bold flavor and that don't mind their spicy food assertive about its heat. The German Sausage Sampler comes with a few fresh pretzel breadsticks, a sweet German hot potato salad, and two fat sausages (of your choice) that are served over a fine heap of sauerkraut.

Service is swift and attentive, even if the waiters and waitresses are clearly in a bit of a hurry because of the rush, but this is to be expected. I've not visited outside of the crush of the lunchtime crowds. The place is kept clean and the tables outside are rather inviting. I'll likely try them when it cools a bit around here.

Certainly no reservations about reserving this one. I'm looking forward to returning.

If you go to beer tasting in jacksonville and wonder where you can find all those exotic flavorful beers there here at European steet. They have a bar and restaurant attached to try your beer of choice and the liquor store carries most beers that get imported to the states. Beer advocates should check this out.

I really enjoy having lunch at European Street any day of the week! Their Roast beef wrap is wonderful, it's almost the only thing I get there, Nice atmosphere at most all their locations, pleasant staff, reasonable prices.

My favorite is an olive, cheesy, sandwich on Chabata(sp?). It's messy and extremely delicious. No meat, and great with a Blue Moon. There's a store too, with wines, cookies and cheeses.

I find eating with plastic on plastic for 8.00 a rip off. The service was slow, not informational and bland. The food did not live up to expectations. Everyone kept telling me this was the place to go. I don't understand why!
We will never go again....sorry

Cons: all of it, except the beer

European Street on Park is the best E Street to eat at in my opinion. The building has a great deal of ambience and the art deco building design really sets it off as a landmark in its Riverside neighborhood. European Street on Park has a large outdoor dining area as well as air conditioned seating inside. Inside, you will find a great old world type bar and dining room. They also have a shop inside with a considerable carry out beer/wine selection and gourmet food items for purchase. The place exudes a bavarian style. The staff is always irreverent, charming, and accomodating. E Street has 3 'claims to fame' and they are: Excellent Sandwiches of all kinds, Desserts with unique style and flair, and a beer selection second to NONE! My favorite sandwich is the 'white russian', favorite soup would have to be the 'beer cheese' served in a bread bowl, and my favorite dessert is definitely the Peanut Butter cookie. Its HUGE! I also recommend the Chicken Salad platter, oh and one more thing, their german potato salad is really good! The owners run a clean establishment that will no doubt impress you!

Located in a colourful historic building (art deco service station!) in the heart of Riverside, European Street has everything you can ask for in a funky cafe. Super selection of sandwiches and beer and the Beer Cheese Soup is unbelievably fab. I have taken my kids here since they were little - no kids menu, but they do allow sharing and splitting. Service is good, but when it's crowded and busy, it can be a bit slow - understandably. As for the other patrons - I've seen very diverse people eat side by side without a problem. This place embodies everything Riverside stands for!

Cons: Crowded at times, Parking awkward

I have been eating here for a couple of years now. If you're looking for a great sandwich and soup or Babaganoosh dip, or a great dessert while chatting amiably with friends, it's hard to beat!
I take exception to the service complaints, since I think the staff tries pretty hard to give a good experience. They ARE sometimes understaffed, especially if you go during a lunch rush, but the european dining habit is one of eating slowly while enjoying a leisurely, relaxed visit with friends and family, not in cramming food down at lightning pace anyway. If you want a place where the waiter isn't shoving you out the door to fill the table with the next "tip", it reminds me most of the cafes in France where good food, good drink, and good company are easily enjoyed the way they are meant to be.

Cons: Eclectic Crowd, Understaffed

I am a resident of Riverside and I love all our "different" people. That's the spice of Riverside. There are lots of better places to eat among the peirced and tattooed, though. I have been to this location 3 times and I will never go back. In by book, three strikes and you're out. I have had to basically stand on the table and wave a chair around to get my check here once. The service is so bad here I've left on two occasions feeling that it must be personal. On top of that the interior seems like it had it's last redecoration in the 80s by a mirror fanatic and the colors they chose to paint the building make it look like a circus. The more I write the more I remember how much I hate this place. I'm going to stop now before I say somthing unfair.

Cons: No Service, Rude Service, Awful Service

Speaking as one of the tattooed patrons of European Street, what else do you expect if you visit the Riverside location? That's one of the things I love about this location - the diversity of people who come to socialize. I agree that the seating leaves very little room for privacy, and the service can be sometimes lackluster, but overall it's a great place to eat.

The one time that I went to this place, every wierdo in the city of Jacksonville must have been in there. There is absolutley no sense of privacy at all. You "enjoy" your food with a tattooed, nose-pierced stranger stairing at you from a distance of about 36" while you eat.
Although the food is good, it's not worth what they charge, or put you through to eat it.

The European Street Cafe in Riverside is wonderful! The food is delicious and inexpensive too. The Beer Cheese soup served in a edible bread bowl with a side of garden salad is always an excellent choice. The sandwhiches are awesome and huge! The triple decker Italian Club is a definite must have! Great food for a great price. There is also an area of the resteraunt that is a little store, with candy, monsterous cookies, and other treats. Oh yeah, did I mention that the atmosphere is very artsy, being in Riverside. Dress is a wonderful balance of dressy to casual. This is the best resteraunt in the Jacksonville area...no, the best in the state! :)
