We pay Bright Mornings Cafe a visit every time we visit Fernandina Beach. The food is delicious and the service is terrific. They are very friendly and hospitable. They have indoor as well as outdoor seating. The outdoor area is in a very cute courtyard. We always get the grits bowl which consists of grits, sausage or bacon and eggs.... More

Stopped for breakfast. Not many spots open early (8a) on a Saturday. Had salmon Benedict and hubby had shrimp and grits. Both were nice enough but not worth returning for. A very relaxed place so easy going service. Very friendly

I'd heard of this "off the beaten path" Café and boy was it ever worth it. If you are staying downtown it's actually a 3to 4 minute walk from the waterfront. Best over easy eggs and fresh bacon I've had in a long time. Zero line and our waitress made us feel like we were having breakfast at her home.... More

Very cute covered patio, friendly & prompt service. Tasty mimosas. Hearty portions. These were the best pancakes I have had in ages! Fluffy, flavorful - I chose pecan filling. Real maple syrup. Loads of bacon strips (flavorful) as a side. Good value.

We split an omelet (make your own), and it was delicious. The waitress and the patrons were very nice. The place has a hospitable atmosphere. We ate outside on the patio. Although we didn't bring our furry friends, dogs are allowed on the patio.

Our first time at this spot and we loved it. They serve generous portions with a smile. The service was great and the host, Walter, was very welcoming and engaging. Highly recommend this place - its a favorite for the locals too.

A great little secret. Bright Morning is a quaint, clean, friendly place for a breakfast or lunch. A little of the historic downtown path on 3rd St. It is well worth the one block or so to get there. We were greeted warmly by an attentive staff. Had our choice of seating. We chose inside where it was bright and... More

A short walk from the Hampton Inn for an 1100 breakfast. Indoor or patio seating. Prompt service and a great standard breakfast (eggs, grits, sausage) started the day off right.

We were searching for Sunday morning breakfast without a long wait, and found this little quant spot. The shrimp and grits may well be the best I've ever had!
