A bit out of the way place recommended by family. Did not disappoint. Great omelets, big cups of coffee. My husbands breakfast was also great. Quaint atmosphere and our waitress was great.

Bright Mornings was suggested to us by hotel staff for breakfast, and typically they give out the best tips for dining and activities. This time they missed the mark. Coffee arrived too long after being seated in a cup with lipstick on it. Food took...More

I stopped in here without knowing anything about the place. I was very pleasantly surprised by what I found. Very friendly staff served me a wonderful breakfast. I had the salmon plate which is the classic lox and bagel. It was served with cream cheese,...More
