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...

I went for just some coffee and a muffin and to read my magazine. I was not disappointed. The muffin and the coffee were good (the latter refilled when I wanted it). The atmosphere was busy, friendly and welcoming. It's a historic place founded by a Chinese refugee, whom you can read about on the restaurant website. There is no... More

Oct 11, 2014. Ran by the restaurant on a morning run and went back with my sons. Place was full--always a good sign--so we were given coffee and sat outside. The bottom line is the food is great, portions are large, coffee is perfect and the people wonderful. We felt like we were with family. Indeed a family was there... More

Went there 2 days running so it must be good. Tried the Denver Omelet and roasted potatoes and biscuit one day. Yum! Fresh Clams another day (Love breaded fried clams and these were local and great!). All 4 of us enjoyed the quick and friendly service from both the waitress and the busboy. It is a very good choice for... More

We liked the ambiance of this restaurant. It was cozy and clean. Very friendly staff. Menu was extensive with lots of options from which to choose. Breakfast ample and delicious. Coffee cup always filled. The owner stopped by and engaged us in a friendly chat on the history of the restaurant.

Friendly waitress, prompt service, wide selection, plentiful servings. Most people order coffee, so they receive top-ups but I ordered tea and it was lukewarm. I asked the waitress for a fresh hot cup and she was happy to oblige. One thing that put me off was the amount of flies around - maybe they could get one of those electronic... More

This is a great place to have breakfast in Morro Bay. Most folks look for lunch or dinner and a breakfast stop right on the water is hard to find. Great service and food. The price was very reasonable and the coffee just kept coming. Next time you are in the Morro Bay area at breakfast time, hit up the... More
