We were walking to a different restaurant but this one caught our eye! One very nice waitress tending to the whole place but she kept up, the food was yummy. A place I highly recommend.

We had breakfast there after it was recommended by our hotel. A real disappointment. It's hard to mess up pancakes but they were not good at all with fake maple syrup although the menu said pure maple syrup. The prices were as high as other nice restaurants. This place lack the decor, the ambiance and the friendly greeting from the... More

My wife and I eat here every time we come to Morro. Yummy omelets. They always keep your cofee cup full, no having to ask. Never a long wait to get your meal.

We had breakfast here in August 2013 on our drive up PCH from Los Angeles. As this was over a year ago, I don't remember much about the breakfast fare, but we both remember Gordon the owner, who sat down with us to share the history of his restaurant and more. He was warm and friendly and we'll never forget... More

Came in for a late breakfast/early lunch. We were at the tail end of service (got there at 1, closes at 1:30). Not very big, but fairly busy. It seemed they were short staffed that day and the waitress was trying to do it all. The food took some time (but our order came to us before the couple next... More

Really delicious clam chowder. Walk up window service and all outdoor seating. Great if the weather is great, but right on the water so can be chilly if it is foggy and damp. Fried fish is pretty ordinary, just like every other fish joint on the beach. The calamari is the best of the seafood I thought.

Love Morro Bay and spend quite a lot of time there since we moved to San Luis Obispo in June of this year. Anyhow, drove by this place again this morning and decided to try their coffee. My wife wanted some breakfast so we decided to order food. I made the goofy mistake of spilling the creamer and the food... More

Pleasant owner and waitress, but food was just average. Ordered a waffle with pecans and was surprised to see the whole pecans scattered across the top. Harder to eat and not pecan flavored bites as if it was in the batter. Asked for crispy bacon and it was borderline burnt. Will try somewhere else next visit.

I've only recently discovered the Coffee Pot Restaurant in Morro Bay. I see now that I've missed out on a hidden gem in Morro Bay! First, the owner and his staff are so kind and friendly, even if there's a wait, they bring you coffee outside! The locals come everyday like clockwork and the owner, Gordon, knows them all by...
