We ended up eating here 2 of 3 mornings of our stay on Amelia Island. There are no small portions. Everything tastes fresh and as if it was made by a grandma. My only regret was not getting some slices of cake for an afternoon snack back at the hotel.

The restaurant is not located near town, it's in some kind of shopping center. It has your very basic items. Service was good the decor can use an update. We got desserts to go and the coconut cake and some other cake I can't remember was very good! It's a good place for breakfast!

My wife and I had two of the biggest, most scrumptious omelettes we've ever eaten! If you want your first meal of the day to last you until dinnertime, this is the place to eat! Dean

Large portions, friendly service; typical breakfast diner food. If you're looking to fill the void, Ms. Carolyn's will serve nicely.

Great place for breakfast. Hyena food was delicious and portions were large. My granddaughter and I both ordered shrimp and grits. One order would have been enough for the two of us. Our waitress, Sandra was wonderful and checked on us several times to see if she could get us anything else.

Open from 7am-3pm. Breakfast until 11am. Closed Monday. Had the pancakes (2) with pecans and blueberries, crab benedict (ask to hold the greens), pancakes (2) with chocolate chips. Food came out quickly. Lots of locals. Sandra the waitress very friendly and quick to refill the coffee. Will be back for those pancakes!

I haven't been to this establishment in over three years. It always had an exceptional reputation and had excellent food. Something has changed. Upon arrival, we were greeted, and subsequently pointed in the direction our table instead of escorted. The food arrived quickly and looked great. However, the pancake just wasn't anything special, like it used to be. I also... More

We had a group of 6 and went on a Saturday morning. We were seated right away. I had heard that their Corned Beef Hash was homemade and delicious. All but one of us ordered it and all agreed it was way too salty. There is a large portion and a lot was left on our plates. The grits, potatoes,... More
