The Happy Tomato Cafe is a cute little place with delicious food and nice atmosphere. I ordered the pimento cheese sandwich and it was sooooo good! They are only open for lunch.Highly recommended!

Great meal and outside dining...what more can you ask for!! The guys shared a rack of ribs which was huge and tasty. The girls had pulled pork sandwiches with pimento cheese as a side order....never had that before up North. Delicious!!!

My wife and I have made the HappyTomato Cafe our go2 joint for BBQ because they consistently cook the best product in the area. We ordered their rack of ribs and they where great, as usual. Job well done. Thanks Happy Tomato!!!

We were quite surprised and happy to find many establishments in Amelia Island had gluten free! I smelled the BBQ from a block, or more, away. My mouth started watering, I was hoping that GlutenFree would be a YES... Boy oh, Boy, I was NOT disappointed! ALL of their meats and sauces are GF! Do not go here looking for... More

We went there ordered two sandwiches and a kids grilled cheese. The food was very good, large portions, and the outside patio was pleasant to eat on. It's tricky keeping track of whose open when, but I'm glad we stopped by here, came recommended by a local.

The food is really good and the staff are friendly. Outdoor there is a cat that visits every afternoon. It's not open for long. Don't wait.

I always get the same thing - grilled chicken salad. However, my last order was disappointing. I could hardly find the small 6 pieces of chicken on my salad. What ever has changed recently needs to be fixed. This used to be my favorite place to get a salad.

We can def see why this place won several awards! I had the barbecue pork sandwich and my son had a grilled cheese. The food was great and the patio type atmosphere was perfect for a breezy lunch. It was quick and the staff was friendly and personable! Will eat there again when on the island again!

My co-worker and I went here for lunch today. The person taking our order was very unprofessional and rude to my co-worker. I could not believe it, and he did not deserve it as he was only placing his order. The food was decent, but the prep team does not even wear gloves even though they touch the food directly... More
