Great location and Food

Great little quiet place. Sandwiches are pretty good and I like the idea of sitting outside under all of the trees on a Saturday afternoon.. My classic place to go to on a weekend when I want a good Turkey on Croissant..

I had heard wonderful things about this restaurant, so when we were in the area we stopped in for lunch. The food was acceptable but was not at the level of "knock your socks off" we had been led to expect. I am easy to please, but I did not see any aspect of The Happy Tomato Cafe that would... More

I am a huge sandwich fan... I eat sandwiches all the time and all over the USA. I tried the chicken salad sandwich for the first time here today (1/27) and it was amazing!!! This is a great LOCALLY Owned place! YOU WILL NOT REGRET EATING HERE!!!

Enjoyed lunch here recently. Found the Happy Tomato on our first night on Amelia Island while we were walking around looking for a dinner spot. We saw they are only open for lunch, had several options on the posted menu that looked good and the prices seemed reasonable.We returned the next day for lunch and were not disappointed. It's in...

When it's nice and you can eat outside and want a light bite, go here. No real indoor seating, just one very small table inside. They have salads galore and all very fresh and reasonably priced. Go through the seating area and go up to the counter inside to order and they'll bring your food out to you when it's... More

This little place is located off the street behind another building. It is small with most of the seating located outside. In total, there are probably no more than 25 seats including those inside and out. It is in an area with lots of nice shops and other eateries. The BBQ was excellent, and the sandwich serving was more than... More

We popped in for a quick lunch the other day. The weather was beautiful and we sat in the sun on their patio. Everyone enjoyed their lunch very much! The BBQ was awesome but they also offer some vegetarian options :) We were even able to have our dog join us on the patio! Overall, great lunch spot!

This restaurant is tucked back from the street. The food was excellent and the outdoor cafe eating style is perfect for a sunny day on Amelia Island.

I had a half of a chicken, and it was a shockingly large bird. The meat was soft and was not even slightly dry. The baked beans are delicious. My company chose a half sandwich mix of chicken salad and pamino cheese which was also large. We both left entirely satisfied! I highly recommend this establishment.

While there are many options for lunch in the Fernandina Beach area, this casual, multi- tiered courtyard is inviting and fast in service. Very inviting, you place your order and pay, at a counter inside a small kitchen. You're choices are many. My favorite..the chicken salad with fruit plate, is served on spinach with dressing of choice, plus crackers .... More
