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.

The service was fast and the food was plentiful. Delicious too. We had a breakfast that was spot-on like we ordered it and so full of goodness it held until a 2pm lunch.

We dined here with great expectations...service was good and the food was average. The blueberry pancake was disgusting! It was sour and the pancake was flat not your typically fluffy and full of flavors. We prob wouldn't be return here.

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'.
