The place to go in the morning in Morro Bay

This is a Morro Bay kind of place, unpretentious but rewarding in it's offerings. One thing for sure is that their coffee offerings are superb, and their pastries range from good to magnificent. They also offer a menu of breakfast items, which we didn't try, but sounded good. Sidewalk seating... read more

Great coffee of all styles. Outside seating, and located in the central town hub of Morro Bay. Meet the locals. Good shops right next door.

I got my food and laughed. It was a tiny breakfast sandwich, a touch cold, and super unsatisfying. I was close to asking for my money back. It was 7 dollars so I was upset. My advice is that there are way better places for coffee. Just don't with this place.

Ended up going there 3 times, breakfast time, lunch time, afternoon coffee time, all really good, I recommend it. And the location, lots of free street parking, fair prices and nice staff too! I had their Baad Dog coffee one... More

Everything you want in an independent coffee shop. Great cappuccino, great staff, great atmosphere. A bit of a wait to be served, but worth it.

Great new internal leadership has turned this place around. Always great coffee but needed some consistency and clean up, which it now has. Just went this morning, praying for the TOP DOG....TOP COFFEE and I GOT IT. The store looked beautiful, great new menu rather then the tacky butcher paper, redone patio, and the coffee was AGAIN AMAZING.....not sure if... More

Coffee was really good. They roast their own beans and had two days of different but really good cups of coffee. I love a good cup of coffee. Baked goods were just OK. did not have anything off the menu/

This place had to be to slowest coffee shop I have ever visited. My Brother and I stepped into the coffee shop and saw five people waiting for their coffee and about six people deep in the line. We turned around and left.

Had some americanos for take out as the coffee at the motel was not very good. They were freshly made and piping hot. Great when you need that caffeine fix.
