Fun place to eat lunch

This is a great place to eat lunch. They have a nice courtyard for eating outside, and their sandwiches are delicious. I ate there twice, once having a BLT and the other time a pulled pork sandwich. The second was so big I shared it with my husband and we were both satisfied. And don't forget to... read more

Really good BBQ and very friendly service. We were checking in to the Hampton Inn &Suites which is nearby and were lured by the aroma of good smoked pork.

Great BBQ. The bun had a small soggy part but I think that was from the pickle juice in the basket. I tried one of the homemaid cookies this visit and it was delicious!!!

My husband and I went to Fernadina for a day trip today. Based on a Trip Advisor review of the Happy Tomato we decided to try it for lunch because we could have our dog with us. We were both very happy with the recommendation. The cafe has a lot of shaded outdoor space with plenty of room for a... More

This was our first experience on the island and it was a good one. Friendly staff. Great sandwiches but the best was the chocolate chunk cookie! YUM! We ate there sitting in courtyard. Very pleasant. It is one of those places where you order at counter and then they bring it to you. Highly recommend

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

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
