Good Service and Great Biscuits and Gravy

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.

Ms. carolyns has the best breakfast on the island. This is the first place we go upon arrival. The cinnamon rolls are a must have.

Ms Carolyn's is in a non descript strip mall, with most of the other stores empty. Do not let that discourage you from having a great breakfast. Everything we have had there, from eggs benedict, to omelettes, to corned beef hash, to french toast, to phenomenal biscuits and gravy was outstanding. There is always a line, but never more than...

Enjoyed the Heavenly Hash. Big portion at a decent price. Wait staff was fast and efficient. Looked like a place the locals frequent. They stayed busy the whole time we were there.

We ate breakfast here everyday. Portions are very generous, so don't forget to ask before ordering. Pancakes are the size of dinner plates; I could barely finish just one. The French toast is thick and sooooo good! Ms. Carolyn,s coffee is really good and the servers will keep your cup filled. Great service. The one improvement could be in the... More

We went on April 1, 2015 and the place was mobbed. But we waited and it was well worth it. We each got omelettes, and they were over stuffed with ingredients and were not over cooked and the the eggs had a perfect texture. We also had fruit and a coffee roll prior to our omelettes and they were also... More
