Explore the Flavors of the Healthiest Menu in Jacksonville at Native Sun!
The NEW Deli Menu features dozens of lunch and dinner choices, all created with fresh ingredients including locally sourced produce. To make meal time even easier, Native Sun also offers online ordering with in-store pick up! Hands down, this is one of the many reasons I absolutely love shopping and eating at Native Sun.
I had the amazing opportunity to sit down with the creator behind the NEW Deli Menu at Native Sun, Chef Eric, to ask him a few questions about this amazing transformation…
Q) What inspired the fantastic food options for your new deli menu?
Chef Eric: We wanted to make updates that would keep our menu fresh and exciting, but that were still rooted in the flavor profiles our that our customers crave. You’ll notice new additions and delicious updates to a few of our classic recipes.
Q) Where do you find the ingredients for the menu items?
Chef Eric: We look locally first. When we can source local ingredients that meet our standards, we do. You’ll see some familiar names on our menu, including local farms and bakers. As examples, The French Pantry supplies us with fresh baked bread and we use Traders Hill Farm organic romaine.
Q) Are the ingredients fresh?
Chef Eric: Always! We are a scratch kitchen and make items fresh every day.
Q) What is the easiest way to order from the online deli menu?
Chef Eric: Visit our website (Nativesunjax.com) or download our app.
Q) When is the best time to order a meal for pick-up?
Chef Eric: The best part of our online ordering feature is that you can schedule to pick up your order whenever you want. You can place an order at your convenience and it will be ready when you are.
Q) How do you cater to people with diet restrictions?
Chef Eric: We have options for a wide range of dietary restrictions. Our menu has gluten-free options and plenty of vegan and vegetarian options. If customers have questions, we encourage them to ask so that we can do our absolute best to meet their specific needs. Outside of the deli, we have a celiac-safe gluten-free bakery that bakes everything from scratch each day.
Q) Does Native Sun offer large portions for pick-up and/ or catering?
Yes! We offer a variety of hot and cold foods on our catering menu. We have options suitable for everything from birthday parties to business meetings.
Q) What is your favorite item on the menu?
Chef Eric: My favorite item (and a current customer favorite as well) is the Burger. We offer a grass-fed beef version and a vegan, Beyond Meat version. It’s classic, served with organic lettuce, organic tomato, organic pickles, and house-made secret sauce on a locally baked bun.
