This place was packed with the locals! The breakfast was delicious and there was a wide variety of choices. Although they were very very busy the service was good

Nice for lunch sandwiches, but best for the cakes. As for breakfast, wish they had real maple syrup, even for an upcharge.

Many people said try Carolyn ' s so we did. Ate breakfast as we left town for home. No one went away hungry and few finished their plates. We tried hash, omlettes, basic eggs and quiche, which was very full of ham and spinach. All very good as were the grits ( no lumps) and potatoes. Only loser was pancakes... More

Great place and great meal to start the day, the omelets were outstanding! The coffee was okay but service made up for it.

"if you don't want well done - you need to tell us." Onions black and corned beef tasteless.....very few potatoes....left on the plate....waitress really not interested in what I had to say about. Even though did not take the second bite - did not offer alternative. Guess they don't need the business. Very, very crowded and loud. Why would I... More

I've had breakfast and lunch there on many occasions. I have to say I have always enjoyed the breakfast better than the lunch. The breakfast menu is more extensive and appealing. Food is tasty and service is good. It would be awesome if they offered the breakfast menu during lunch hours! They also do homemade cakes and I've ordered a... More

We spoke with someone who was also on vacation and they raved about Ms. Carolyn's so we went there for breakfast. I ordered french toast which very spongy and had no egg flavor at all and I could only taste the cinnamon. The fresh assorted berries were very good. The eggs were cooked to order, but the bacon was unusually... More

We had breakfast for a family of five. All the food was fine, but nothing really knocked our socks off. I ordered my Eggs Benedict soft, but they were fully cooked through. My husband's burrito was huge. No kids menu, but lots of a la carte items that worked.

What a treat! Server was beyond amazing! Food was filling and you could tell it was freshly prepared! Had to have it all: hash, biscuits and gravy, and the burrito! Thank you for enough breakfast for 2 days !

I've had several people tell me how great this place is, however I didn't find it that special. Food was ok, nothing special, and was pretty expensive for what it was. I don't think I would return, as I can make better in my own kitchen. Glad I tried it but I wouldn't return.
