I love this place! It is a corner location, but I love to eat in their courtyard area under the beautiful shade trees. We have been there for lunch twice. Once was a regular lunch during the week days, and once was on a Sunday Brunch. If you get one of their side dishes, I recommend their potato salad. It... More

One of the reasons this place continues to be busy and well regarded is the consistently excellent food and friendly service. Year after year, we continue to enjoy the unique menu and locally brewed beers.

We really enjoyed this restaurant. We sat outside at the court-yard by the fountain. Our server was very friendly and helpful. We had the grilled ciabatta bread for appetizer with a couple of their brews. I ordered the veggie burger with sweet potato fries and I think it was one of the best veggie burgers I have had so far.... More

We sort of stumbled across Café Karibo but are glad that we did. It is a little tucked away but once discovered, well worth patronizing. You can eat inside or outside under the shade of trees. Modern cuisine providing healthy ingredients and great taste. Beet salad excellent as was the curried chicken wrap. All the food looks great. Worth seeking... More

The onion rings are ridiculously good and almost taste like a doughnut! The fried spring rolls are fresh and wonderful. I had read that the desserts were worth a visit here alone; however, that was not our experience. It was ok but not that good at all. Overall, really fresh food and unique choices.

House brewed beer - very nice!!! We only ordered the grilled Ciabatta bread (which was amazing!), but the food we saw coming out looked incredible!!!

We went here with a group of 9. We were immediately seated and our server, David H, came to ask us which of their craft beers we'd like. When only 1 person ordered alcohol, he seemed to dismiss us. We all got the sense that he knew he was getting an automatic 20% tip due to table size, so he... More

We have lost track of how many visits we have made to Cafe Karibo. The food is always fresh and delicious. Something for everyone. I had Thai noodles twice. The wait staff is friendly and attentive. Sangria is the best I have ever had anywhere. I only had one sad moment in the three visits this past month...my favortie dessert...fruit... More

Karibo Café is a neat little place for lunch tucked down a side street off the main road into Fernandina. Inside a charming historic building on Third Street, it offers inside dining as well as patio dining. Since it was very hot and humid, we elected to eat inside! We ordered the Pig & Apple sandwich, and the Baja Chicken... More

I took some out of town friends to Fernandina for the day and we were looking for a place to eat lunch. We found this place by wondering down a side street and were so happy we did. They have a nice shaded outdoor seating area. They also have a nice bar area on one side and more restaurant style... More
