HUGE omelette and an equally large portion of potatoes came out way! The coffee was mediocre ( weak ) but all else was truly heavy handed and generous portions. The cheese grits are to die for. I like an honest waitress - so the restaurant gets extra points in my book for the honesty of the staff. I was going... More

This is a great place for breakfast you'll find all the traditional fair plus extras. They also have a great brunch and you can sit outside and enjoy the weather.

We loved having breakfast here each day. It was not crowded, breakfast came quickly and the omelets were fantastic. The service was great and the staff was friendly. Definitely a relaxing way to start the day.

The Bright Mornings experience is colorful, friendly, and delicious. We were glad we stopped by.It was close to downtown but just a little off the main--a nice spot.

I love that they start with bringing an assortment of muffins to the table with the menus. We ate here for brunch and the omelet was good, as well as the French toast. The only disappointment was the chocolate milk - it was more chocolate syrup with a splash of milk. The waitresses were friendly and it's a comfortable setting... More

Service is laid back. Perfect for this beach bum. Brunch is very good. A menu selection typical for a cafe setting. If you're expecting city service, go to New York. If you want to relax and have a good brunch, this place is perfect.

When you are given an award by Trip Advisor that says a lot. And this restaurant does not disappoint. By far this the breakfast/brunch destination for my wife and I. The food is simply amazing and the staff always so friendly. Great selections and generous portions. Highly recommended.

My wife and I treat ourselves to breakfast at Bright Morning about once every two months. The food is always well prepared and they have a nice variety. We enjoy the fresh baked goodies they put on the table when you arrive. It is particularly nice to eat outside in the warmer months.

Thank FBTV
