This is a delightful restaurant in downtown Fernandina. It's a breakfast/brunch place with plenty of "shaded" outdoor seating. Wife loved the very fluffy blueberry pancakes. I had a delicious omelet with anson mill grits. Great place for breakfast. We'll be back

This is a cute breakfast spot with shady covered seating. The staff is friendly and service is fast. Coffee was served promptly and complimentary mini strawberry muffins with strawberry preserves were brought to the table. My husband had one of the daily specials which was the biscuits with country gravy and two eggs. It was perfect. Sausage gravy was spot... More

My meal was Mason Dixie( bacon, eggs, cheese biscuit)! Eggs over done, biscuits not fresh. Whole meal tasted like out of microwave! My wife's meal was original egg. Egg's overdone, bacon was good and potatoes with onions were good!

Busy during shrimp fest. I get it. But after letting us wait for 15 minutes they proceed to tell us it will be an additional 45 minutes (a heads up would have been courteous). With a two year old getting hungry we ask if we could just get a croissant and milk to go. "We don't have croissants."... "it's on... More

Thank you very much for your review. We know that we were running on our limit to satisfy all customers, who happen to come in nearly all at the same time. I personally stand on the front gate to tell every customer that we have a waiting time up to 45 min. And I did not seat any guest before... More

After more than a year of being part time residents of Fernandina Beach, we finally got around to sampling lunch at Bright Mornings Cafe on a sunny and mild Thursday afternoon. In retrospect our only mistake was in waiting so long. We elected to sit outside, and each of us ordered a different menu item (three of us including our... More

This was our second time here; last time was for breakfast which we loved. This time we had a late lunch. Had the crepe special and the quiche special. Both were outstanding. Friendly staff and owner.

The food was good, nothing extra ordinary. Lunch offerings also, but the main things are the usual breakfast items. Avoid the potatoes-- they are underdone. There was only one hard working waitress, and several of our group had to send things back. But, if the weather is good, it is lovely to begin the day outside

Thank frtravler
