Where To Get Your Caffeine Fix

Blue Bridge Coffeehouse is named for the famous drawbridge on the nearby St. Marys River, begins serving its craft coffees, breakfast and lunch items and pastries early so it’s convenient for visitors traveling through or pausing to enjoy the ambiance of Kingsland.

Espresso Base serves both craft drinks and breakfast and lunch entrees from what looks like a tiki bar, so it’s a quick and easy stop. But the expansive yard on the side also invites travelers to stop and relax beneath ancient live oak trees or enjoy the occasional live music and special events.  

Breakfast Options

Steffens Restaurant not only serves up breakfast dishes made from scratch (also lunch and dinner) but it’s also a treat for the senses. The restaurant dates to 1948 and its history covers the walls. Don’t miss the Southern standard of biscuits and gravy!

Wandaful Things, a Best of Georgia Award winner, Chef Wanda Clark stretches the breakfast envelope. Clark loves to bake as well, so save room for one of her pastries.

Waffle cone chips topped with ice cream or yogurt and a host of ingredients make up their decadent Nach-Oh!z. But there’s so much more. And yes, it’s another Best of Georgia Award winner.
