It has been closed for a while and I have not heard of any plans beyond that. The owner apparently does some catering in the area.

Baywood Park is small, cute and has a thriving coffee house, this one is across the street. The owner seems grumpy and without joie de vivre why be in business.

Several years ago, this place was mostly a coffee/breakfast deli--now, it has greatly expanded its menu into gourmet lunch sandwiches and remodeled its outside appearance. Prices are fair, staff is much happier and traffic seems higher. Great views of the bay, nice outdoor seating/windsceens added, good parking. Big improvements!

We had a voucher for breakfast at Good Tides included with our B&B stay. We both really enjoyed the sweet potato waffles with bacon and a glass of blood orange juice. Very tasty! The service was good and we enjoyed the outdoor seating on a nice quiet morning- we were up early and were the only ones here!

We enjoyed freshly baked blueberry muffins bursting with berrys. The bacon and eggs breakfast reminded us of the great food of Ireland. Very reasonably priced. The garden trellis dining patio with the view of Morro Bay complimented the relaxed, baby and doggie friendly atmosphere. Very friendly service with three bubbly ladies at the counter and cooking in the cosy kitchen.... More

It's a tiny spot with outside seating only. But the food is fresh and excellently prepared. The crew from here also has booths at several local farmers market. Their chicken pot pies are weekly staples for us. The soups and muffins are also very good. Give it a try!

We had eaten here when it was across the street. So glad to find it again. The coffee is wonderful and the food delicous. We like it so much we came back in the evening for dinner which was even better than breakfast. THe owner is highly trained and skilled, you won't be disappointed in the quality of the food... More

This little restaurant is tucked back behind another shop on 2nd street, but takes a back seat to none. Its delicious selection of dishes are made with healthy ingredients, and it doesn't cost any more (maybe less) than other cafes. I loved their sweet potato waffles! (and so did my grandchildren!) Many people take food to go, but I enjoy... More
