Small but fabulous place for breakfast. Met the owner Lu Chi Fa and his story is inspiring. Orphaned at 3 he eventually made it to the US and is a successful business man. His book, Double Luck, is available on site. What a gracious host! Portions are huge and our food was fabulous! Don't miss this if you are in... More

My husband and I first went to this restaurant in 2010 when we went for our anniversary and we have been back every year since then sometimes 2 times a year for vacation and Coffee Pot is the ONLY restaurant we will have breakfast at. The owner, the staff, the locals and the bacon.... Yes the bacon...are all so wonderful.... More

It's right on the waterfront and the staff are nice, the food great, service quick and the value decent. The owner is well known and was on sight and pleasant as well. It's well liked amongst locals.

Good little restaurant. I felt it was a little expensive for the amount of food they served. Didn't care for the potatoes, they don't serve basic hash browns.

Always look forward to going to the Coffee Pot at least twice during our visits to Morro Bay. Gordon and Sandra are so pleasant and friendly, always remembering their repeat customers. The other server is also very friendly but her name escapes me (so sorry). The food is awesome as well and the prices are fair. Decaf coffee needs some... More

We always stop in to the coffee pot when in Morro Bay. Nothing fancy just a great breakfast at a good price in a friendly atmosphere. The owner is always there so remember to say hello. I have my own Coffee Pot coffee cup at home!

Dry service and seafood omelet. The tables were extremely close together. I heard conversations from everywhere around me. On a bright note, my husband was thrilled with the biscuit and gravy.

I am so happy we found this place. We tried to go to 2 other breakfast places, but they weren't open yet. We arrived here before 8 AM on a weekday and had a delicious breakfast! I had a veggie omelet that was just loaded with the tastiest fresh vegetables! My husband enjoyed eggs with corn beef hash. Our waitress... More
