Good local cafe

Reminded us of Connie's Kitchen at home( TN). Homecoming. Shrimp and Grits was wonderful. Daughter had the crab cake burger and was full ( hard to fill up A growing teen). Service was attentive and friendly. Clean. Will remember for future Amelia aisle visits.

Looked for Best Breakfast in Fernandina Beach for my sister and me, and Ms. Carolyn's was near the top of the list. The description sounded just like what we were looking for! It was mid morning so we did not have to wait. The menu is extensive......and everything we saw as we were led to our seat looked yummy!! Holle,... More

This is the best "home away from home" breakfast place! Loved the omlets and the fruit cup was awesome! But everything our group got was excellent including the pancakes!! Excellent service and quick to get food! We will be back on our next vacation! We loved Ms. Sandra serving us each day!

Great service, good food at a fair price. Had a tasty breakfast here on our last day on Amelia Island. There seems to often be a wait but we arrived early on a Saturday morning and were immediately seated. It is places like Ms. Carolyn's that make seeking out local places worthwhile.

If you don't know this restaurant is here you might miss it. Located on Sadler, not too far from the beach. The breakfast menu is fantastic, very extensive and great options. The service is always friendly. If you go on a weekend morning, expect a wait, but well worth it.

From a bagel to anything you want. All is fresh and good. In an empty storefront but Ms Carolyn's brings people in. I recommend if you want a hearty breakfast.

Breakfasts are great at Carolyn's for young and old alike!!! Are favorite time to come is lunch--you must start with the Swahili wings--may I recommend getting two more orders for take out--they are so yummy--don't forget the napkins. The special is always wonderful--they have great sandwiches, salads, and full blown wonderful meals!!!

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 ( which... 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
