Soggy quiche was sent back, it is made with a crepe shell instead of a crust. Soupy mess. Coffee was not what one would hope for in a small local owned place. My Hampton Inn coffee was better. Will not give second try, nothing special...More

Although the atmosphere is nice and the food is pretty good it's overshadowed by the $2.25 a 12oz can soda cost. In addition, the food presentation looks like they were out of large plates. So I guess piling the eggs on top of the pancakes...More

Bright Mornings has a breakfast menu that's more creative than most, with fresh, generous portions and wonderful flavors! We had a great breakfast Monday morning (Yay! They're open on Mondays - & closed Wed. instead.) Charming, relaxed ambiance indoors & out. We had exceptional service.
