Just go there. The five of us each ordered different types of food. Although my wife's omelet order got messed up, the replacement and everything else was wonderful. Since it was Super Bowl Sunday, I was feeling especially manly and felt comfortable ordering the quiche. What a pleasant and delicious surprise. As the other reviewers indicate, you can’t miss at...

My family and I moved here 9 months ago and this is our breakfast go to. I have always had great food. I love the pancakes but my wife loves their French toast and crunchy bacon. I love the community atmosphere when I visit this establishment. If your ever in the area ask Kerry(Mrs Carolyn's son )to make some of... More

Ms. Carolyn's was highly recommended to us so we stopped for lunch. It's a very busy place and loved by the locals. I had the delicious shrimp and grits. Shrimp sautéed in garlic wine sauce with spinach, mushrooms and a few tomatoes over cheese grits. There were about a dozen good sized shrimp. My hubby had the Swahill wings and... More

I had a crab, bacon and pepper omelet, by far the best tasting and biggest omelet I ever had. The pancake was so delicious. Service was great also. This was a very busy place but we didn't wait long at all. Our waitress was very good too!

Ms. Carolyn's was a pleasant surprise, while set in a strip mall, don't let that bother you the food and service were delightful. The omelettes we're large and tasty, the Crab Benedict was outstanding, and don't pass up a short stack of pancakes, they were the best we have had in a while.

I have been to Ms. Carolyn's twice and both times were delicious! They know how to make excellent breakfast food and tasty omelettes. The only negative was that the bathrooms were dirty.

Normally have good service and food here. Today I ordered a cheeseburger with no mustard. It upsets my stomach big time. I get the cheeseburger and it has mustard. They took it back and returned in just a minute or two with another cheeseburger. I take a bite of it and i could taste mustard. I lift the bun and... More

In a strip mall, this is standard diner breakfast fare in a standard strip mall environment. Reasonable prices, OK food. Nothing spectacular.

Fast service and a strong mimosa were the highlights of the breakfast. The coffee was decent but nothing that stood out, food was as expected but not phenomenal. Server ordered wrong eggs for my friend (they ordered over medium but was served soft scrambled) and I asked for jalapeños in my western omelette that were forgotten. Overall good but not... More
