Cute cafe tucked into a little strip mall. Nice menu with breakfast, brunch and lunch options. The hot roast beef sandwich had a wonderful amount of roast beef but had scant cheese. It was very good anyway. The omelet was also good as were the home fries. Loved the way the home fries were spiced! The train running around the... More

Our family went to Cafe Fredrica for brunch. 5 adults 2 teenagers. The restaurant was packed with locals and visiters as well. We didn't mind the wait - the food was worth it!

Had a wonderful brunch while on vacation on St Simons. Plentiful servings of our choices and attentive service checking for coffee refills, etc. We especially enjoyed the blueberry pancakes - packed full of large blueberries! The omelet I customized was also full of goodness.

A very hard to find location but once you find it, it is great. The food is great. We were a group of 6 and we tried many different breakfast features and all were wonderful. One nice feature, you didn't have to order a full order of things, they would prepare what you wanted, for instance, one piece of french... More

Anytime we visit Saint Simons Island, we make a stop here for a terrific breakfast. The omelets are great, bacon is nice and thick, sausage is tasty and the cinnamon rolls are the" icing" on the meal. Usually crowded and parking is limited, but well with the wait.

My Mom lives on the island and comes here at least once a week. She loves the small town local feel of this place and the friendly staff. The food is great as well, plenty of variety. *if you come here with children please donnot let them destroy the jelly packets and throw sugar packets on the floor and laugh... More

It's a little hard to find, a local spot. We had a great breakfast there and enjoyed the super relaxed atmosphere and service. This is a great place not only to eat but to enjoy observing daily St. Simons life outside of the resorts. And the price is very right.

This a longtime favorite lunch/brunch spot in SSI. Wonderful, welcoming staff. Great food. Kids will enjoy the choo-choo train that runs overhead.

Got a quick lunch here and found that the sandwich was fresh food, and served quick with great friendly staff. Therefore we went back for breakfast on our last day on the island. Was not disappointed. This appears to be a locals place for breakfast on the weekends. It was busy but you did not have to wait
