“For outdoor eating only.”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

You go in & order at corner & they bring you food out to outside court. It was in the 70's so very pleasant. I had an excellant pimento cheese sandwich, very full of the cheese. My husband had a huge bar b q pork sandwich which he also liked. Good value also.

“Great spot for lunch”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Just off the main street of Fernandina's historic downtown, the Happy Tomato offers a cozy place to have a quick lunch. The menu is simple, the staff is friendly and the service if fast. The treat is the patio that allows you to enjoy your lunch outside. Tree cover and umbrellas easily provide the shade you need during warmer temperatures. If you order the BBQ, take your pick of sweet, spicy or mustard sauce. All are very flavorful. For something simple, try the homemade pimento cheese sandwich. Sure, the name is clever, but it's the food and service that seal the deal.

“Decent pulled pork”
Reviewed April 18, 2013 via mobile

Not life changing. Just good. Baked beans were delicious. Coleslaw also fresh, creamy and crunchy.

The pulled pork was good but not mind blowing. BBQ sauce was good. I don't get the white sliced bread. Need something with a bit of texture to balance the soft meat.

The Happy Tomato Cafe is the perfect spot for a quick and delicious lunch! The barbecue is wonderful, sweet tea is refreshing and the chocolate chip cookies are to die for!
