“Always on our list to eat and never disappoints!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

We arrived at Saint Simon's Island Friday night and already had plans to eat breakfast at Palmer's on Saturday morning. As usual, we were not disappointed. We all ordered our usual and settled in for a fine breakfast. This place has awesome service, and a great atmosphere. The food has always been great, and they offer several entrees that are Palmer's originals. My personal favorite is the Hooch, one such original. If you get a chance to visit Saint Simon's Island, take a trip over to Palmer's to experience what they have to offer. You won't be disappointed.

“Refreshingly Quality Find in a Tourist Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012 via mobile

Palmer's does everything right. The menu is inspired and wholesome. The food is quality and fairly priced. The service is professional! On a very busy weekend we were greeted and served with care. When a dish was amiss it was handled swiftly and made right with a complimentary slice of key lime pie to boot. We made a second trip all the way there from Jekyll on only a three day stay. They seem to have a loyal following of locals. We were happy to discover a charming cafe in a tourist town where mediocre dining can be the norm. We will be back!

“WORTH THE WAIT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012 via mobile

We have had wonderful experiences at this restaurant and thought the world should know about this little place. A breakfast menu that is interesting and varied -- it makes you want to eat breakfast more than once a day. Service was so friendly, informative and fast. The food was served so hot and plated so nicely. They were so busy and the owner took the time to give us directions. Looking forward to our next time in town just so we can visit Palmers!

“Great breakfast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

OMG - we had the banana pudding cakes with nilla crumbles. This dish was incredible! My wife had the challah french toast which was fantastic too! Coffee and service excellent. Can't wait to go back!

“Bad...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

What do you do when you're 'new in town'? You check trip advisor for the best place. Bummer..... This was disappointing.  Palmer Village Cafe looked closed from the outside, just the sign 'open' encouraged us to go in. Place lookes chabby and the sounds and smells from the kitchen rushed upon us. Loud rock music was the cream on the pie.. This place looks like an old kantine, only the colorfull paintings gave it some entourage. The waitress serving us was, to put it mildly, rude and unfriendly. My wife asked for a capuchino/ late, appearantly she didn't know what this was since after a second attempt she could only react with "regular or decaf" and not in a friendly way. The rest of the service was artificial and fake. We felled unwanted and certainly not welcome. A customer who asked for the restroom, was shouted at with the directions so all guests were unwilling witnesses of the poor gentlemen's needs... The breakfast was of a seldom shown poor quality, the bacon was old, the pancakes too thick. Good advice for tripadvisor to do mystory shopping visits since this Palmers Village Cafe is showing off with their trip advisor's recommendation. We would encourage everyone not to go to Palmers Village Cafe unless you want to be offended by poor food and even worse service.
