“Good food, slow service!”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

Food is great, took forever to get our food. There blamed it on a printer problem in the kitchen. I guess it wasn't printing the order.

“Excellent”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

Full range of delectible breakfast offerings and great cakes to take home. One and only problem is the wait to get in; try going early or when the kids are back to school!

“Excellent place for breakfast on the island”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

If you're into breakfast then Ms. Carolyn's is a must. It's a busy place and expect to wait a bit, especially on weekends. However, it's worth it. We usually get the omelets with potatoes and split a pancake, with cinnamon rolls to go.

“Too good”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

This is one of those places you shouldn't tell anyone about because it's already packed most of the time. However, it's so damned good that Carolyn's deserves the accolades. Best breakfast around and her baked goods are legendary. Every visit, the employees have been helpful and friendly and attentive without being overbearing. Parking is a little problem - but maybe if it wasn't, you'd have people sitting on your lap waiting for the tables.
Can't wait to go back...!

“biscuits are great”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

Bright UV lights, NO where to park, no ambience.
Great biscuits. Eggs were perfect. Friendly staff.
Pancakes looked great but not that good, kinda watery.
Potatoes O'Brien were ok, def not great
I will eat the biscuit sandwiches again and just get it "to go", they were REALLY GOOD!
I had my normal 2 cups of jo when I woke, so I did not try the coffee.
