Top Dog is Morro's version of a "Cheers" - you're only a stranger once. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, the coffee is superb, and there are munchies to suit any palate, be it vegan, gluten free, you name it. There's a cute patio out back featuring individual, private sitting areas, with a soothing water fountain to add to the... More

I'd read about the small batches of beans roasted several times a day at this coffee shop, but didn't realize how that would change the flavor - best I've had in the entire state! Wifi access, eclectic decor and customers, a nice little patio out back to sit in the sun and eat pastries while drinking the best joe around... More

Nice food and coffee.. Staff are friendly too.. One star deducted from rating as possibly a little over priced and they had no orange juice at breakfast time!

I'm a latte lover and this latte was on the best ever. Top Dog also opens at 6am, which is a bonus for early risers!

We opted to Top Dog based on TripAdvisor reviews, and it was conveniently located to the motel we were at (Sandpiper Inn - which I also recommend). The ambience is great for a morning coffee and breakfast. They serve bagels, muffins, breakfast sandwiches, and a great "scramble speciality". Get the scramble specialty - you will not be disappointed. Loved it... More

Top Dog is a great little coffee shop with excellent atmosphere and even better coffee. Top Dog is one reason I stay in Morro Bay. In addition, as a Dog person they have a great name I hope to some day bring my K9 companion with me to visit the Dog friendly patio.

Title says it all. Coffee, excellent; pastries, fine. A couple of outdoor tables. This is the place to sit and have a cup of coffee during the day in Morro Bay. Even in high tourist season this is a local choice.

We always try to stop by and get one of there many dog's that they have on menu. Limited sit down area, you may want order and go.

My husband and I love weekend getaways in Morro Bay. Our early morning adventures begin -- I pick up a cup of Top Dogs dark roast then head to breakfast with my husband. He likes their coffee too, but opts for coffee service at a local, close in proximity restaurant. Server at said restaurant takes 20+ minutes to take our... More

Try the Mexican Mocha….all I can say is it is a smile in a cup. The service was nice and a great location.
