Great breakfast

Stumbled on Bright Morning while looking for breakfast. Very pleasant cafe and super friendly and efficient staff. Better than average coffee. I had salmon Benedict and was delighted with the side of chopped onion, tomatoes and capers. Mate had the traditional scrambled, bacon, homefries and toast... read more

Stumbled on Bright Morning while looking for breakfast. Very pleasant cafe and super friendly and efficient staff. Better than average coffee. I had salmon Benedict and was delighted with the side of chopped onion, tomatoes and capers. Mate had the traditional scrambled, bacon, homefries and toast and was equally pleased. A little pricey at $27 but it was delicious and... More

Nice little venue for breakfast, close to downtown Fernandina. You might want to bring a book to read while you wait for your meal. Although the food is good, I just don't have all day to read a novel while I wait for my food. Breakfast should not be an all-day dining experience, unless you make it so.

We had lunch at The Bright Mornings Cafe. The outside table offered a very relaxing lunch. The food however, was very mediocure. I had a salad with chicken and my husband had the grilled chicken sandwich. The menu was not exciting, and given the other opportunities at Amelia Island, I would opt for another restaurant choice.

We stopped here on our way out of town for breakfast. It is a small place, with basic decor and a few tables outside as well. The servers were friendly and the food was served quickly. We all had omelettes, which was a special and not on the regular menu, though it should be. The menu has sufficient choices otherwise.... More

Owners and staff are nice and friendly. Service is quick and edficient. Food is good and imaginative and the place is homey. Only thing I'd suggest would be a good throigh cleaning, a little dirty around the edges...not terrible.

This is the best breakfast places we have come across in all our travels around the US. The breakfasts are excellent what ever you choose and the service is brilliant. The staff are friendly and attentive. It is a perfect way to start any day

Because of the other great reviews my husband and I went out of our way to stop for breakfast. We hoped to take advantage of the cute patio area, but the weather was uncooperative. As soon as we were seated, our waitress, Victoria, brought some coffee cake and jam. I ordered the Eggs Benedict with Salmon; my husband chose more... More

one of the best parts of our entire stay in the area was finding this adorable place! We were headed out of town and wanted a great breakfast to tide us over on a 5 hour drive! After reading some yelp reviews we decided to try Bight Mornings. The place is charming and quaint and we loved the intimate atmosphere... More

Ate here with my husband while staying in Fernandina Beach and we loved it. The staff was very friendly and the food was tasty! We would have preferred to sit outside on the veranda, but we were late arrivals and Bright Mornings is very popular! The mimosas we had with breakfast were also very well made. I almost hate to...
