Another restaurant off the main street but you need to try. We thought we were eating breakfast at our hotel but that's another story. This place was located a couple of buildings from our hotel so we tried because it was close. We were not disappointed. It is a small place but has outside seating. Good place for breakfast and...

I return to Amelia each year and always stop here but something feels changed. First off, the waitress said, Just one? Ouch, Next came cold prepackaged muffins tasting of chemicals and unremarkable coffee which was pretty weak. But it was the atmosphere; to me the warm, coziness felt missing and in its place just another breakfast spot. The scrambled eggs... More

The visitor center staff recommended Bright Mornings for breakfast and I'm so glad they did. It was delicious, great local atmosphere, indoor or outdoor courtyard dining options

Small, yet friendly place for breakfast/brunch/lunch. Good-size menu with everything one could want for breakfast. We had the french toast, biscuits, eggs, bloody mary, and cheesy grits. All delicious! Very reasonably priced too. Closed on Wednesday tho....

A group of us stopped in for Sunday brunch. The owner was on site and was friendly and helpful. Our server did an excellent job of taking care of us. Everyone stated their food was delicious and I thought the biscuits and gravy some of the best I have had in this area.

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
