Very good food. Very good service. We were inside, but on a warmer day would have loved the outside space.

Great place for breakfast. Cozy....inside or out. Fresh homemade food with ample portions. Will customize your breakfast if you ask and, if you don't know what grits are, they will give you a sample. Definitely, my kind of place.

When you go out for breakfast... You want coffee.. but what do you do when they don't have a working coffee pot... you drink water. How does this happen. Really, just 1 coffee pot. Okay, enough with that. Let's try to get service... We sat for 15 minutes before they acknowledge us. The service overall was terribly sssssllllllooooowwwww. Then came... More

Stopped here for a quick breakfast. The food was great and the staff was very friendly. The breakfast portions were very large and a great value.

Loved this place years back and we went frequently - after it changed hands we were dissatisfied with the food and service so we stopped going. We decided to give it another try this week and here's what we thought: One of our meals was ok however the vegetable quiche I ordered was all mushy ~ It actually looked like... More

My husband and I picked Bright Mornings as it received great food reviews. Those were spot on. We were very satisfied with our breakfast! However they were short staffed on this Saturday morning and although our waitress was very courteous and apologetic, she was scattered at best. The other waitress seemed to be handling her tables more efficiently. We sat... More

Great breakfast! Went with my mother, she had the special. The food was amazing the cook came out and talked to us. We were told of this place by a local. It's a little hard to find but places like that are always great local restaurants! Would recommend to anyone!

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
