The Patio Place is a must. Almost everything about dining at this little gem tucked along the outer edge of Downtown Fernandina Beach makes for a perfect experience. The fun, inventive menu, a wonderful staff and amazing atmosphere lifted me onto a cloud.
One of the loveliest things about Patio Place is that it really feels warm and welcoming. They want you to hang out and enjoy yourself. Fluffy companions are also welcome; there’s a water bowl available on the patio and complimentary dog treats; maybe even a pat or two.
Take some time with the menu — you’ll need it. Owner Amy Petroy and her husband have traveled all over the world and wanted to bring the flavors of their journeys back to the States. Choose from bratwurst from Germany, bruschetta from Italy, crêpes from France and more. Do not let the variety trick you into expecting prefab, processed food. We toured the globe with the menu and everything is fresh and flavorful.
