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

Wow! Excellent, friendly staff! We were immediately greeted by the friendly staff at Bright Mornings! There's indoor and outdoor seating. Outdoor seating is very intimate inside a courtyard with umbrellas and shade. This is the perfect start to the day! Great coffee and wide variety of tea selections. Plenty if coffee refills throughout breakfast! Staff was very attentive! Owner also... More

I've enjoyed breakfast several times at Bright Mornings Café, and the food is always delicious with large portions. It is a Mom and Pop type of café, with a friendly staff and owner that always makes us feel welcome. On my recent visit, I ordered the omelet special (spinach, feta and bacon) which was delicious. Our trip was on a... More

Food is a 4, however the service is a 2-3. Waitresses always pleasant however it takes forever to get tables and waits for food , not sure it is worth the 30 minute wait all the time

This trip to Bright Mornings ruined our morning. We waited an hour and 10 minutes for our food. It would have been better had we been given more muffins but that was not the case. The grits tasted funny, the eggs over cooked, and the bacon burnt. When we requested more bacon, we were told, "It all looks like that."... More

We've been coming here the last couple of years and the food exceptional. I guess they've become a victim of their own success. Food was average and service poor. It took an hour and a half to get seated and for the food to be served. We weren't the only ones disappointed. A couple of other tables got up and... More
