This place is wonderful! Personal service, great atmosphere. Grab something and have it in the garden backyard. So relaxing! Tea isn't from a store bought bag, they use loose leaf and bag it there! Can't wait until morning to try their breakfast menu.

This is a mandatory stop when in Morro. The jazz is smooth, the coffee is mellow, and the munchies are memorable in their deliciousness. It's the sort of place that beckons you to linger and actually enjoy your coffee, with a lovely patio out back featuring a soothing fountain, indoor seating with internet access for those who are inclined, and...

My wife and I have been enjoying Top Dog for the past couple of years whenever we're in town. I can say without qualification that their coffee and service is unparalleled. I lived in SF for many years and had some fantastic coffee. But none beats Top Dog.

Great coffee house and very busy. Served all sorts of coffee and very friendly. It was very convenient to the Morro Crest Inn that we were staying in. You could also purchase cakes and snacks.

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.
