We recently moved here and love a good breakfast. I was hoping the first experience was just a bad day for them, so after several weeks we tried again. It was even worse. On the first visit, the service was fair but the food was not cooked properly and they got the orders wrong. On the second try, we managed... More

The make your own omelette was delicious. For a flat fee, you can add as many ingredients as you'd like. Indoor and outdoor seating

After driving all night to get to Fernandina Beach from Nashville we were looking for some nice, quiet place to eat breakfast. We wanted someplace that felt like we weren't in Nashville. Bright Mornings Cafe fit the bill. Our waitress was fun but straight-forward. The four people in our party all got different menu items and don't remember anyone complaining.... More

Great breakfast in a restaurant with a homey feel. You feel as if you are at grandma's in this cozy spot. Our waitress, Jenny was super sweet and gave us great service. Grits were very creamy and seasoned just right. Best Breakfast Bowls ever with bacon, Grits, eggs and cheese. We will be back!

We have been long time customers, and sadly, in the past year, it has slipped some. Long time and good chef left, and the interrim ones leave something to be desire. Today was no exception. Service was prompt, ordered the salmon benedict and omelet. They were put on the table in less than 5 minutes.No, really, that quickly. I guess... More

Staff were rude. Food was mediocre. Waited an hour for French toast and was told that it was too difficult for the chef! They turned people away 40 mins before they closed saying they were 'about to close'.

There's something special about going out to breakfast while vacationing at the beach. Bright Mornings is a quaint little place that was recommended by a local. I had a simple breakfast of eggs, bacon, and toast and it was perfect.

Charming place with good food for breakfast and lunch. A cozy location in the historic district.The dishes for brunch were imaginative and delicious. Ask for their baked brie!

From many visits here, I can tell you that we've never had a bad meal. We like their breakfast so much that we've never had lunch here, so I can't speak for that. There is a small, cheerful inside restaurant, and a larger, shaded patio with tables and umbrellas. Service is excellent! They start you out with a small plate... More

My husband and I had breakfast here before going home, it was a nice "send off" the ladies here were very nice and sweet. The food was good and the price was reasonable.
