The Café

Traditional French sidewalk tables with umbrellas take you to Paris without leaving downtown; or relax from the soft breeze while dining in the covered patio. Perhaps you prefer to dine inside. Our colorful and cheerful, upbeat café is decorated in French style black and white checkered floors, tables with wooden chairs, and paintings featuring the south of France. Comfortable, casual and fun The Magnificat Café is conveniently located in Downtown Jacksonville at the corner of Laura and Monroe Streets by Hemming Plaza, right next to the new Jacksonville Public Library.

The Chef

Born and raised in the suburbs of Paris, France and educated as a chef in Bordeaux, Chef Benoit Francois Desclefs brings his culinary expertise and 30 years of experience to The Magnificat Café.
