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!

First visit today for breakfast. Quick to sit us. We choose outside on the patio to enjoy the gorgeous weather. The server was very personable and had a smile for us every time she came to table. I had the scrambled egg, ham and brie on croissant. Very flavorful. Eggs were perfect. We really enjoyed our visit. I will be... More

This used to be one of our favorite breakfast places on the island. It has always been slow, even with ownership changes, but the food was good. This time I couldn't tell you if the food was good or not. When we arrived there were two tables seated outside with food. We sat down and several other tables started filling... More

HUGE omelette and an equally large portion of potatoes came out way! The coffee was mediocre ( weak ) but all else was truly heavy handed and generous portions. The cheese grits are to die for. I like an honest waitress - so the restaurant gets extra points in my book for the honesty of the staff. I was going... More
