Whenever we are on the island we make a point of having b-fast or lunch here. The food is excellent along with the service. Every time we dine here with my Father In Law we always meet locals who invariably are regulars. Don't miss it.

had breakfast there this morning. very quaint. I did not anticipate the quality of food. The service was excellent and everyone was very friendly. I had shrimp and crab eggs benedict. Very good. Will go again tomorrow. Every bit as good as Palmer's but no wait and less expensive.

We are snowbirding in St Simons and have tried several breakfast places. We really enjoy Cafe Frederick. Very friendly with good breakfast food. Try the French toast. It's exceptional.
