I've dined here a few times. The food is good, slightly above average, but the service is slow. The staff is very personable however they seem to be understaffed or unorganized. If you're on a schedule, you'll end up frustrated waiting on a table and an extra cup of coffee. But if you're not in a hurry, this place has... More

The food was not that good. We ate breakfast and it was very pricey for the amount of food we received. Small, service was ok.

Tonight, as bright mornings closes up for evening meals, we had the MOST delicious ribs, potato salad, and veggies you could think about! The ribs were amazingly tender and so moist. Chris, the lead chef, is an amazing person in that kitchen. This restaurant is traditionally open for breakfast, Monday through Friday and lunch, too. On the weekends, it is... More

We set out for Ms. Carolyn's, but wound up at Bright Mornings due to the fact that Ms. Carolyn's is closed on Mondays. We were NOT disappointed. There is seating inside as well as outside, but we chose an inside table. We started out with a small sampling of muffins with orange marmalade and maybe a berry(?) jelly. It was... More

Friendly staff, southern style breakfast, great atmosphere both inside and outside. One of our favorite places to revist when we're in Fernandina Beach!

I was on a girls trip to Amelia Island. I researched a bit on trip advisor before we ventured out and we all decided Bright Mornings Cafe. So glad this is where we ended up. We arrived around 9:30 a.m. and had a small wait. The staff communicated very well and seemed glad we were there. We ended up sitting... More

What a delightful place to visit. We chose to sit outside in the courtyard and were greeted immediately with a plate of of muffins samples and jams. I chose the omelet special of the day which had sausage, bacon, ham and cheddar cheese, accompanied by grits and raisin toast. Enough for two people, but I did by best. It was... More

A cute quant place to enjoy breakfast or brunch. I had their salmon eggs Benedict special and it was delicious! It was super nice to have the muffin sampler. The orange marmalade was super yummy. My husband asked for a side of bacon, he didn't get it with his southern comfort platter but we weren't charged. We will be returning... More

I am not sure what I enjoy best, the awesome breakfast, the yummy little muffin appetizers or the sunshiny friendly staff so early in the morning. you can sit in the nice little dining room inside or the quiet patio area outside. Either way you will have great service. They really get your day started off right. The breakfast potatoes... More

Loved sitting outdoors in this out of the way breakfast/lunch cafe. Had the best service ever and one of our servers had a sense of humor we really enjoyed. Omelet was large and delicious. Good coffee. Two things we did not expect - muffin portions for the table (and they each were really good) and fruit with each dish. Great... More
