Ritual – Jacksonville, TX

Ritual is an incredibly charming little restaurant in downtown Jacksonville, TX.  Housed in a beautiful historic building, the inside walls are bare brick and the ceiling is made of open wood rafters.  A crystal chandelier hangs from the ceiling, and a display of floating hot air balloons adds to the vintage/whimsical atmosphere.

The menu consists mostly of absolutely delicious sandwiches and salads.  Their selection of beverages is just as notable, if not more so; offering an extensive variety of coffees, hot teas and traditional ice cream floats; along with some other, more exotic offerings such as bubble teas, espresso floats, and that traditional Southern treat: Coke with peanuts.

If you’re someone who enjoys a good dessert after lunch, this is the place for you.  Particularly, we would endorse the Chocolate Antarctica Mousse.  Aside from tasting incredible, there’s nothing to make you feel quite so fancy as eating something that has been sprinkled with bits of gold!

Although you expect such a posh sandwich shop to be a little high-dollar, we would consider the prices to be pretty standard; which makes Ritual a great place to have a classy lunch without breaking the bank.  Although there is no dress code, we find that most customers tend to dress up a little, at least wearing a nice pair of jeans and blouse.

If you’re having trouble deciding where to get a bite to eat while in Jacksonville, you should definitely consider heading downtown to try out Ritual!
