Truly where the locals go! I'm a huge fan of breakfast joints all over the world. But I must say, Fernandina has a true gem of a local joint in breakfast with Ms. Carolyn's. I've had the crab Benedict, Frank's egg white Omlet and the Veggie Omlet with Feta cheese and every bite is thrilling! My favorite part about choosing... More

Quick service, decent food. A nice, easy place for a quick bite, always quite busy. Had lunch there one day, breakfast the following morning. No disappointments, nothing outstanding. Give it a try.

We love the breakfast options - a multitude of egg dishes and numerous pancake selections but I keep coming back for the grits - which are some of the best ever. Apparently everyone knows how awesome this place is because it is a mob scene on weekends. If you can go during the week, it is calm quiet breakfast oasis.... More

We enjoyed the Lumberjack and the eggs and grits. Eggs and grits were outstanding. Coffee was restaurant-average, meaning drinkable but not choice. Free refills and hefty ceramic mugs improved the experience. Bacon and sausage were well-cooked but served barely warm. Servers were very busy but took time to be welcoming. A friendly place and pleasant experience. Will recommend to friends.

Ms. Carolyn's is in a strip shopping center sitting back off Sadler Road in Fernandina Beach, so you have to look for the fairly large sign above the door. Plenty of close-by, level, parking. Open for breakfast and lunch only. Nothing fancy, very casual, similar to a diner but with lots more table space and booths. Breakfast was very good,... More

There are lots of places to lunch on Amelia Island but we opted for Ms. Carolyn's because of its local reputation and its proximity to our hotel. If you are looking for fine dining and a fancy set up this is not the place for you. If you want a filling, well-prepared lunch stop in and eat at Ms. Caroline's.... More

The first time we ate here it was very good. The second time, not so good (bad fish) so we gave it one more try. The special was lasagna and several people were ordering it. It looked like a very large square of lasagna covered in Mozzarella so we decided to share a piece. What we got must have been... More

We went here for breakfast and it was fantastic. The cinnamon roll is the best I have ever eaten! I also had a plate sized pancake with blueberries and pecans, yum. The corned beef hash is homemade and again, yum! You can tell the locals go here and it is a very friendly atmosphere.

Great service, huge portions, good food. I honestly would ask for a smaller omelette next time. Grits with cheese were perfect.

We eat here all the time when visiting the island. Its by far the best breakfast on the island. The crab hash is excellent. The cakes they make are to die for and well worth the money.
