The Hand-carved roast beef on a yummy roll was delicious! I came for fish & chips but after seeing so many orders for the roast beef, I couldn't resist. Great location, reasonable prices.

My husband and I were enjoying a leisurely walk on the waterfront in Morro Bay. We wandered in to see the beautiful cinnamon and pecan rolls that we could smell. They looked fresh and lovely; staff was very pleasant and not pushy. After wandering along the waterfront a bit longer, we decided we'd like a cinnamon and a pecan roll... More

This used to be our favorite restaurant in Morro bay, but has gone a little downhill. Prices up too high and quality down. We've given it three more tries.portions of meat on sandwich are smaller,but higher price. Quality not as good as it was in past.au jus too salty.

Our party of three wanted just enough to hold us over through the Christmas Flotilla's light show. We all had Fish and Chips, and everyone spoke well of their meal. Great malt vinegar on the table...just well presented. Passing by the sausages, soups, salad makings was torture, as I was hungry.
