Fantastic little breakfast and sandwich place. Total gem :)
4.5 Stars It was Thursday morning. The second day of the family beach vacay and we needed nourishment in a bad way. Cafe Frederica, here we come. We rolled up there at around 11 o'clock 9 deep and they seated us immediately. The place is nice and cozy with a toy train tracks that circle the whole place. Very kitschy in a Mr. Rogers Neighborhood sorta way. Unfortunately, the toy train wasn't working on this particular day. The kids were devastated but I think that they'll get over it in time. Cafe Frederica serves breakfast and lunch only. I think they close at 2 o'clock each day. Anyway, the coffee was pretty good as was the orange juice. For breakfast, I ordered 2 eggs with country ham, grits, some grapefruit sections, and an english muffin. My girl ordered an omelet with crab meat, mushrooms, onions, and swiss cheese. The food was solid and reasonably priced. My girl's omelet was pretty good as were my grits. A few of my kin folk ordered the eggs benedict and told me that it was out of this world. My only real complaint with my food was that the ham was pretty overdone and the grapefruit wasn't very good. In fairness, when your server reminds you (which he did) that it's "grapefruit sections" and not fresh grapefruit, you should know what you're getting into. What made me give this place 4.5 stars was the amazing service. Our waiter K.K. was everything you could ask for in a waiter at a place like this. My coffee and water were always full, he was great with the kids, and he always had a smile on his face. The food came out very quickly and K.K. even took a pretty good picture of us to boot. While I recognize his artistic talent at photography, I really hope that K.K. will not quit his day job as he is an amazing waiter. I highly recommend this place to those visiting St Simons.
Whether you happen to be visiting the Golden Isles of Southern GA - or you happen to be stuck here involuntarily for several months - if you're like me, you'll be craving a good sandwich about mid-week, and a decent brunch by week-end. Cafe Frederica has it both, in addition to fantastic, friendly service, warm and fuzzy digs, and exclusivity (it's off a side road in a shopping center, and I've never had to wait on a table). Plus, a decent cup of coffee, and some of the best key lime pie, I'm told. Brunch recs: the locally obtained crabmeat omelet, some homemade hash browns, and a warm, freshly glazed cinnamon roll. Lunch: the Reuben and a side of pasta salad. If you're craving good eats and a local, down-home feel, this place has got both, and then some.
