Family oriented, better than average

Visited for breakfast. Omelet prepared very well, filled with requested ingredients. Potatoes needed to be more crisp. Avoid the biscuits and gravy, not bad but certainly better at other restaurants. Biscuits are home made, not prepackaged. Cost is a couple dollars more per meal than others... read more

Cute, quaint place on a side street in downtown with indoor and outdoor eating. Outdoor eating is in a lovely courtyard with lots of greenery and a fountain! Breakfast menu is short but creative and has something for everyone! Breakfasts are a little higher than average priced (in the $9-$10 range, but the atmosphere and quality of the food makes...

The cafe has some charm, being located in an old redesigned house. Our server Kay was an awesome southern waitress...she called us sweeties! Most important, the food was really good. Sometimes you get a breakfast that's just meh...not here. We had the classic and the omelette. Both great. OJ was small, overpriced and maybe from concentrate? That's the only drawback.... More

Its worth trying to find! Its tiny and off the beaten path by just a hair. But if there is a line, grab a seat and wait. Great breakfast!!

My family had breakfast at Bright Mornings Cafe. There were 10 of us - 6 adults, 3 children and an infant. We ate in the courtyard. It was quite pleasant, even for August. Tables were put together for us and a bucket of coloring books and crayons were brought out for the children. We were served muffin samples as we... More

Very good food, very friendly staff and the prices were fair. While it does need better maintenance and cleaning this is a great place for breakfast. We ate there three mornings.
