Good food and nice overall experience

We wanted something other than the breakfast offered by our motel so we chose this restaurant for our last day breakfast. I ordered pecan pancakes with a side of sausage and my husband ordered eggs, with bacon and grits. We loved the cakes served with marmalade (complimentary) and both were happy... read more

Super slow service. No reason why, just slow. We sat for about 20 minutes before they came to take our order,then sat another 10 min before coffee came out. 45 min later and food still not at the table and restaurant is 1/2 empty.

Thank you very much for coming in on one of our busiest Sunday morning brunches. As most people that visit know, we are a very small Family operated Restaurant with 49 seats in and outside. You recognized correctly by coming inside that there were only half of the seats taken. But it was such a lovely day you decided to... More

After a week at the beach near St Augustine, we wanted a place on our way out of town for a great brunch. Granted, it's out of the way - about a half hour from 95, but being we had to make some other stops anyway, it was well worth the detour. Excellent food and loved the atmosphere, particularly on...

Wow! We ate out on the patio and it was so enjoyable! Matt, our server was excellent! It was only 9 am and when I requested a mango smoothie it was delicious! Food was also delicious! It started raining but we held out on the patio and enjoyed the view and rain! Would highly recommend anyone to eat here. Another... More

Within walking distance from downtown Fernandina Beach, this cute little gem offers a variety of tasty morning meals. It's located in an older but cheerful pink house that is well maintained, festooned on the outside window with colorful painted pictures.As the inside did not ha email a table for 6 available, we were seated in an outside patio reminiscent of...

This little cafe was by far the best place to eat on the island! The blueberry pancakes tasted as if they were filled with fresh wild blueberries. The omelet was chock full of feta, scallions and spinach! Daniella, our waitress, was the ultimate in grace and attention to detail throughout our visit. She brought us an ice cold bowl of... More

Visited here for lunch and will go back for breakfast. Breakfast is served all the time and many others around me had breakfast. Looked great, but I was in the mood for lunch. Had a Turkey with Provolone and pasta salad. All was very good. Service was awesome. Place was very clean. Good meal for the money. We will definitely... More

Had breakfast here today. Wow!! Food and service were impeccable. Can't believe this is rated at only #30. Planning on another trip here for lunch tomorrow. This is without a doubt the best breakfast we have had on the island and we have tried most of the more highly rated places.
