This cafe off the beaten path is a find! We always look forward to going here for a great breakfast in a charming outdoor setting. The service is wonderful. The staff are super friendly and very attentive. The food is great. The eggs were fluffy, pancakes and french toast delicious. Also tried the quiche, which was so light and fluffy.... More

While touring Fernandina, found this quaint restaurant out of the main tourist area. What a find! The staff is charming and welcoming. We sat down and were immediately brought over a small plate with jams and small servings of muffins and quick breads - all homemade and so tasty. The breakfast menu included the standards plus their specialties. From start... More

We could have eaten at the hotel for free. No way when this place is a short walk to great food! The pancakes were excellent. Eggs done perfectly. It was so good, we went back the next day before we had to leave the hotel. Wait staff is so friendly. You feel like they've known you forever. Remembered us from... More

I recently had breakfast at Bright Mornings again. It is still just as delightful as I remember from previous visits. The folks are friendly, the food is wonderful and the outdoor seating is a treat. I had eggs over medium, bacon, grits and toast. This was served with a bit of fresh fruit and portions were plentiful. My daughter had... More

So glad we stopped here for breakfast before vacation shopping in Old Fernandina. The food was delicious and plentiful. The service was attentive with coffee refills and friendly conversation. A very homey place and no doubt a favorite of the locals.

A quaint breakfast place with tasty home cooked food. The restaurant is quite small, but has a large courtyard for outdoor dining. It's not at all fancy, but that's part of the appeal for me. We've been to Bright Mornings each year when we visit, and we enjoy it each time. Fresh fruit is very good, pancakes are always tasty... More

This place is not worth your dollar. We went for breakfast on a Monday and had to wait near an empty table for the staff to clean it up from previous diners. We waited and waited...then were able to sit at the somewhat cleaned up table. Service was extremely slow. Food was not good. I ordered an egg white sandwich... More

Had a nice breakfast of overstuffed Omelet ,grits and thick crispy bacon. Wife had three fluffy sweet pancakes with thick syrup. Great place to start your morning. Set inside or out in a garden setting. A block over South of Centre Street at the end of third street. Tourist wanting a slice of the Island ,seek this gem out.
