Cozy spot for breakfast, brunch

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

This place was recommended by a local. Our experience started standing by door, not sure what to do, and being totally ignored. Once seated, I was served ice cold coffee but my sister's hot water was okay! Menu really nothing special, and person who recommended said they had unusual omelets which wasn't on menu but then waitress told us what... More

Came here for breakfast this morning and was blown away by the quality of the food. This place has the most delicious grits I have ever had, in my life. The staff were extremely helpful and very attentive. If you come to Amelia island, do not miss this place! Will return!

Went to Bright Mornings Cafe with hopes of finding a treat for breakfast. The restaurant is nice place, friendly staff but seemed a bit forgetful. The menu was their weekend brunch which really isn't very different from their daily breakfast - even the waitress point that out to us. The eggs were cooked properly and so were the grits. The...

We heard that Bright Mornings had been sold to a new owner. Uh oh we thought, as it was our favorite breakfast Place on Amelia Island. We went to try it out....wow, the blueberry pancakes my husband ordered were just out of this world...the very best he has ever had at a restaurant. My scrambled eggs were so fluffy, and... More

I can't say enough about this little restaurant. Food and service were great. Selection was good for such a small place (the outdoor seating expands the space significantly). It's almost like sitting in the kitchen with your sisters cooking breakfast while talking to everybody.
