Tasty and Healthy

Tired of the typical "tourist food" we stopped in and were pleasantly surprised by the homemade quality and excellent service

Horrible. A "half pound" angus hamburger showed up 45 minutes after we ordered it as a quarter pound of shriveled up, dried up, burned, inedible piece of grossness. We had to wait 15 minutes after sitting down to even get our drink order, then another 45 minutes for that disgusting thing. This place is completely disorganized. Don't go there if... More

This wonderful little cafe is tucked away in downtown Fernandina Beach about one block from the water on Amelia Island. It has the sweetest prettiest outdoor ambiance you could imagine. The service was excellent. The wait staff is very knowledgeable. The food was equally delicious. We had a large group of nearly 20. There were several options for vegans, vegetarians... More

We ate here last night. My onion rings (hand made) were great and just the way I like them. The squash soup was extra tasty. My Caesar salad was a little dry and could have used more dressing, but the waitress never checked on us. My companion's burger was good, and his salad was also (although it wasn't the one... More

We had lunch here but i would have loved to gone for dinner, just to see the courtyard all lit up. they are nestled in beautiful trees and lights are strung through out. It was a a late lunch so the place was not crowded at all. We had sandwiches which were very good and my husband had a beer.... More

I went in for lunch with my two small dogs. They brought out an organic treat for them! I got the all American burger. So juicy and tender! I also got cobbler for dessert. Not bad but I wasn't the best. My server Faye was great too!

We had the opportunity to experience an early Sunday brunch on their tree-covered patio on a beautiful spring day. Our party of four tried their Crab Cake Salad, French Toast, Eggs Benedict on Crab Cake (special), and some kind of spicy Mexican eggs (which I can't remember the name of). There was more talking than eating at our little family... More

The wife and I always stop in whenever in area. Consistently good food, pleasant surroundings, and reasonably priced. I've never sat inside so can only speak to outdoor dining. See you there!

Cafe Karibo has the most wonderful, eclectic, and delicious menu we found in Fernandina Beach. But the most memorable part for us was sitting on their upper, covered balcony on a somewhat rainy evening. For most of our dinner, we were the only people up there in the treetops, watching the lights shining like little diamonds in the trees. We... More

We return to this restaurant time after time and it never varies; it is always excellent. Plenty of options for both the vegetarian and meat lover. Staff are fun and friendly. Food is out of this world. What you have here is a neat, indoor and outdoor locale with a lovely garden patio area in which to sit whilst you... More
