Central Coast Quilt Run 2015

Stopped here for breakfast. The eggs, potatoes and sausage were very good as was their bagel with cream cheese. Coffee was excellent. Would go back here to try lunch or perhaps dinner. Located right on the Embarcadero Rd.

I can never say enough about this restaurant. We have been going to Morro Bay for 5 years about 2 times each year and Coffee Pot restaurant has been "our" restaurant. The staff are so very warm and welcoming. There will never be another for us. The chili verde omlette is to die for!! mmmmm

Honestly this place had a terrible smell. I'm not sure what it was, but definitely not somewhere I want my breakfast cooked :( If your looking for a great breakfast or lunch, do yourself a favor and go north about 2 blocks to Franki and Lola's! You won't regret it!! Its our new favorite!!

Great place for breakfast on the central coast. Of course they pour a tasty cup of coffee, and offer eggs that are perfectly cooked, anyway you desire them. We dine there, on the Tuesday after Memorial Day, so we had no trouble getting a table. Our bacon was served crispy as requested, their potatoes are delicious, not the dreary hash... More

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.

An innumerable collection of fascinating "coffee pots' adorn every wall of the restaurant. All shapes that will remind one of years gone by. The menu simple but tasty. The owner is of Chinese descent, and always stops by telling charming stories with every visit....just to smile, converse, as well as refill our coffee cup. He is as fascinating as his... More

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

Since 2011 my husband and I have been going to Morro Bay for our anniversary and for leisure. Every single time we are there we go to Coffee Pot restaurant and will never go anyplace else. The owner Gordon is amazingly friendly along with his staff, the waitresses, Amy and Sandy and bus boy Rudolfo. Even though we only make... More
