Though it was recommended as a place to take kids (ours are 17 and 16), I didn't feel the same after eating there. The menu was good and there was lots of variety but it was almost like a tapas place in terms of the portions which doesn't suit teenage boys. My wife had the lentils and thought they were... More

This is a great little restaurant, the flat bread pizza was one of the best I've ever had. Great burger and service, will return again.

Nice casual dining and atmosphere for the beach. Options of sitting outside under the shaded patio or inside, they brew their own beer which my husband loved. We had the fresh Popano which was cooked to perfection. I would love to go back. Only thing they should do differently is clearly mark the entrance and post a seating sign.

Loved that the rest of downtown of Fernandina had crazy wait times and just a short walk down 3rd Street is this jewel! Short 5 minute wait time and then prompt service. Awesome! We had a great server, Jordan. Enjoyed our table located in the breezy, beautiful courtyard. All of our dinners were good. If I had one thing to... More

Rare lunch date with my wife. She ordered the shrimp salad on a croissant roll which came with a small salad. Overall she was happy with her meal. I was pretty hungry so I ordered the Ruben sandwich. Being from the Northeast I appreciate the flavor and bulk of a good Rueben. What i got could have easily been slid... More

Morgan, Thank you for your input regarding your experience at the Cafe. I understand your frustration with the Rueben. At the Cafe we always try to think locally, and lately we have been testing a partnership with a local bakery. The rye bread was not up to our standards and we have since switched back. I'm glad your wife enjoyed... More

We swung by Fernandina on our way home from a weekend in Savannah. Found this place on Trip Advisor and decided to give it a try. What a pleasant surprise. The tree shaded outdoor patio is a lovely spot to enjoy a leisurely lunch. I had a fantastic curry chicken salad wrap along with one of their local brewed stouts.... More

Came in with seven people last night, most were visitors to the island. Was told outdoor seating had been closed due to possible bad weather, yet saw people being served outside. The hostess, although nice, did not seem to be able to come up with a solution and did not even ask us our name for waiting list. Then Nicole... More

We loved this little spot in Fernandina Beach. We traveled here over the Fourth of July holiday and dropped into the inviting plant-filled shady oasis of a courtyard to have a drink and a snack. The food we had was tasty and the menu looked imaginative and there was a good selection of drinks. We will definitely go back here... More

The menu offers a great variety and the Salads are really delicious . I enjoyed their Mediterranean Salad with Grilled Shrimp & my friend had an amazing Fried Green Tomato BLT that was fantastic ! It's always delightful to enjoy lunch outside or stop by in the evening for dinner & music..It's a wonderful restaurant !

This café, off the beaten path, is surprisingly delicious. The atmosphere could use a bit of work, but the menu was great. As a vegetarian, I usually find one thing I can eat, but this time I hard difficulty deciding! The Thai noodles were yummy (my friend got them with chicken). I had the veggie burger, which was made of... More
