“Better than Perkins, Denny's or Village Inn - still......”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

While on vacation for a week in Fenandina Beach, we visited Ms. Carolyn's on two separate mornings. The food was prepared well, with eggs cooked properly and our meals as we requested. However, on both occasions, they seemed understaffed and service was very hurried and not very personnable. In fact we watched one older couple who tried to order their meals to go at the cash registar get completly ignored to the point that they eventually left in frustration. We felt sorry for this older couple who obviously didn't ofter go out to eat. The decore was funtional but nothing outstanding. There are few breakfast places in Fernandina Beach so we will probably return here on our next trip but then we also go to Perkin, Village Inn and even Denny's as a last resort when we are hungry for breakfast. Go early however, they close shortly after noon.

“Eggs done right”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

Good breakfast place. Can get crowded due to limiter seating. Understand they are moving to larger quarters in 2013 and plan to offer lunch as well.

“Perfect Local Breakfast Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012 via mobile

We stayed at Amelia Island for a couple days and fell in love with this breakfast place. It is where the locals go so you know the food is good and the prices are reasonable. The restaurant is small but it never was crowded. The biscuits and gravy were delicious and the portions are quite generous. Our server, Amity, was EXCELLENT. I would recommend her if you decide to eat here. It can be expensive to stay on the Island with all the shops and over priced restaurants, so you have to find where the locals go. This is the perfect breakfast place to start your day. Your coffee cup is never empty and there is a cozy feeling during your dine ;)

“Breakfast made easy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

Love the crab eggs benedict. So much delicious crab. Love that my girlfriend can get her eggs cooked her way every time and I can get andouille sausage in a quesadilla for breakfast or pancakes or whatever. Have to ge every time we visit Fernandina. It's a small place so be ready to wait for a table. It's worth it.

“Disappointing...just your average breakfast.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

Spinach in anthing comes uncooked. Cinnamon rolls are ridiculously, insanely big. Breakfasts are generally average but too large. Typical American. Good pancakes but the syrup is Walmart fake Maple Syrup.
