Breakfast

Don't be mistaken by the location, you will get the best breakfast on the island here! I ordered the Nana Scrambler and a pancake because the Nana description said one egg. When it arrived i could not believe it. It had to have had at least 3 eggs. It was wonderful. I could not eat all my pancake... read more

We ate breakfast there on Sat. morning about 9 AM. We walked in and were immediately seated. (Timed it just right because shortly thereafter, there were people waiting for tables.) Pretty quickly greeted by a very friendly waitress. Ordered a Bloody Mary and Poinsettia to drink. Both very good. The food selection was pretty broad. My wife had Eggs Benedict... More

We enjoyed our breakfast - especially the pancakes so much that we went back again the next am. They only serve breakfast till 10 - so be sure to go early!

Staff is friendly. Prices are a little on the high end for somethings but the food is very good. My husband ordered the crabs eggs benedicts and loved it but the sauce was different on one of them it was very thick and sour. Not good at all. The other had a thin very light sauce that was delicious. Very... More

Stopped in for breakfast before exploring the island and the beach. Had good food and good service. Our waitress even suggested we see Fort Clinch before we left. They left my jalapenos off my omelet but hubby loved the biscuits!

My local friends often eat brunch here after church on Sundays. We kept the tradition during my visit. Ms. Carolyn's is in a dying shopping center, so there is plenty of parking and adequate table space, even on a busy Sunday morning. I had the crab eggs benedict. The portion of crab was generous. The food was pretty good. Next... More

This is a very busy breakfast location with good food and great service. I suggest the crab Benedict and biscuits and gravy. It would be great if they had better coffee.

A little bit away and out of sight on the main road is Carolyn's. The place fills up fast as the breakfast choices are many and the servings are homemade delicious. You will not be disappointed.
