Just what the morning Dr. ordered.

Before I get to the food, this café is small. As a lot of the restaurants in this area are built out of old homes, so is this one. Logic, the restaurants & cafes are going to make the most of what they got (tight seating). Best advice, get there as soon as you can. Most of the time there... read more

The food was simple. Nothing special in taste or presentation. It has a diner feel, down to the waitresses loudly discussing their relationship problems. Was sorry I bothered to stop.

A couple of months back, the local paper announced that Bright Mornings was closing and the owners were retiring. Fortunately, they are still open. If you are in the mood for pancakes for breakfast, this is the place. Please come hungry and patient. The servings are large and everythingis cooked to order. If the weather will support, eat in the... More

Have eaten at Bright Mornings for many years and have always loved it. I know they are under new management, and have eaten there since, with good results. However, this morning we ate there with Grandkids, and one child along with Grandmother totally disliked the pancakes. The Grandmother said they were the worst she had ever eaten. We will try...

Good breakfast, brunch dining in out-of-the way spot a block from Centre St. Outdoor patio preferred over cramped, but charming interior.

This is the kind of place I remember when I was a kid. No frills, fast, friendly service and the breakfasts are great. They serve up the perfect portion size, you don't walk out feeling overly stuffed. Good coffee too.

The omelette special was great, made with fresh ingredients. Blueberry pancakes were fabulous - golden and flavorful with browned crispy edges, just like I like 'em - plenty of blueberries. The servers were friendly and welcoming. Easy to walk off the calories by visiting the close by gallaries and shops afterwards.

I left eating here disappointed. I think that was because of what I ordered. I love pancakes but did not care for like them here at all. I ordered small stack plain and I got this huge plate of very thick bread muffin like pancakes. I like mine thinner with some flavor... wished I had gotten blueberry which would have... More

I ordered the salmon breakfast and the portion was very small. The salmon was good. There was only enough cream cheese for one side of the beagle. There was only a 'trace' of red onion and a few capers. Last time I enjoyed the salmon breakfast, there were slices of red onion, slices tomato and avocado, etc. This time nothing!... More
