6 Local Restaurants To Support In The Jacksonville Area

Covid-19 hit small, locally owned, or family businesses especially hard this year. This past spring, many had to shut their doors and lay off workers not knowing if they'd be able to reopen again. Thankfully, these past few months have seen a slow progression of reopenings across the country. Although things seem to be returning back to "normal," the pandemic took a massive toll on many restaurants who may have been struggling to maintain business before the virus hit its peak.

During this time, it's critical that people work together to strengthen their communities. One simple way to do that is by eating at family-owned restaurants that may be recovering from some serious financial losses. If you're in the Jacksonville area, here are some of my favorite local restaurants to support (just don't forget your mask when you go).

1. European Street Cafe


Four locations in the Jacksonville area prove this restaurant's food is in high demand. Family-owned and an award-winning menu makes this restaurant a must-see.

2. King Kabob

The Meatwave

Mediterranean food at its best! This newly-opened restaurant is home to some of the best gyros I've ever tried.

3. The Urban Bean Coffeehouse Cafe

Florida Times-Union

One of my all-time favorite study locations and breakfast cafes. The Urban Bean Coffeehouse has been given numerous awards for its service and quality coffee since its opening in 2015.

4. Fla. Juice and Bowl


All my acai bowl fans will love this hidden juice bowl cafe located right by the beach. The bowls are big enough to share with a friend and are perfect after a long day in the water.

5. Biscotti's


The best homemade gourmet cake in Jacksonville. Hands down.

6. M Shack


An M Shack burger and milkshake is truly a perfect match. This restaurant currently has three locations around the Jacksonville area.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

Emma Smith
  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

Amanda Hayes
  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.
