I love to sit at the bar with my husband or sit in the courtyard with the family and friends. The food is always wonderful.

Some of the meals - good - black bean soup, tuna, scallops and caprese salad notable. Rum marinated pork tenderloin - no run and dry, Mahi-mahi not particularly interesting

Homemade taste, from the sliced roasted turkey sandwich to the Thai noodle salad to the peach iced tea! Just wish I had room to try one of the lovely cakes! Pretty garden area dining with lots of shade too.

Tired of the typical "tourist food" we stopped in and were pleasantly surprised by the homemade quality and excellent service

Horrible. A "half pound" angus hamburger showed up 45 minutes after we ordered it as a quarter pound of shriveled up, dried up, burned, inedible piece of grossness. We had to wait 15 minutes after sitting down to even get our drink order, then another 45 minutes for that disgusting thing. This place is completely disorganized. Don't go there if... More

This wonderful little cafe is tucked away in downtown Fernandina Beach about one block from the water on Amelia Island. It has the sweetest prettiest outdoor ambiance you could imagine. The service was excellent. The wait staff is very knowledgeable. The food was equally delicious. We had a large group of nearly 20. There were several options for vegans, vegetarians... More

We ate here last night. My onion rings (hand made) were great and just the way I like them. The squash soup was extra tasty. My Caesar salad was a little dry and could have used more dressing, but the waitress never checked on us. My companion's burger was good, and his salad was also (although it wasn't the one... More

I went in for lunch with my two small dogs. They brought out an organic treat for them! I got the all American burger. So juicy and tender! I also got cobbler for dessert. Not bad but I wasn't the best. My server Faye was great too!
