Get to know the owner of this restaurant and read his book, it will inspire you and encourage you. Plus you'll enjoy the breakfast or lunch all the more. Wonderful little place for a quick breakfast or lunch. Love their coffee

The owner and staff know how to present a professional service. Hearty breakfast choices. We have breakfast here at least twice on every trip to Morro Bay.

Expansive breakfast menu. Excellent chile verde omelet and outstanding cinnamon French toast with huge whole walnuts, sliced bananas, and whipped cream. Breakfast you won't forget! The waitresses are so friendly, polite, and efficient and the owner greets you with a big welcoming hug and thanks you for coming to his restaurant. He has an unbelievable personal story to share, coming... More

First time coming here. We had a party of 9 so had to wait a few to be seated. It's a small place so we had to wait outside and it was chilly. They instantly served us all coffee to keep us warm while we waited. Once seated we were promptly helped and food came out quickly. A little more... More

We always love going in for the best cinnamon rolls in town. They are huge and the waiters always pour your water from about two feet above your glass. It's always a hoot here. Super yummy food, too and the service is awesome. :)

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.
