Delicious potatoes, bacon and tons of avocado. Fresh ingredients, attentive service in a bright and comforting setting.

We ate breakfast here several times during our visit, and weren't disappointed once! We had great waitresses every time; friendly, efficient; kept coffee cups and water glasses refilled without our having to ask. We tried a variety of items and liked them all: pancakes, eggs, bacon, toast, fresh fruit bowl, delicious shredded hash browns, and the best homemade banana nut... More

My wife and I were visiting family in the San Luis Obispo through Cambria areas and we decided to give Carl's a try for lunch. The server was ok (not overly friendly but not rude either) however, she didn't seem to understand what some of the specials were or what was in them. My wife had the Albacore Tuna Melt... More

Close as you can get to home-cooked breakfast! Always leave feeling stuffed. Large pancakes are delicious...slice of ham on ham 'n' eggs order is almost too much for one person....pan-cooked potatoes are great!! This locally-owned business is watched over closely by Carla, who is not an absentee-owner. She is there whenever we dine in at least once per week. We... More

2nd visit and sadly, last. Food never disappoints, great patio seating, coffee average, but poor attitudes with poor service has killed it for us. First visit last year we were seated and waited 10mins + for a server to take our drink order. No smiles, no niceties. This visit i'm not sure how long it would have been had i... More

When beginning your day in Morro Bay, don't miss the breakfast at Carla's Country Kitchen. Carla's great breakfast and her charming, no-nonsense restaurant was easy to find, easy to park, had great service, and most important wonderful food. We were on our way up the California coast and spent the night in Morro Bay, and the hotel owner suggested stopping... More

This is a fun locals spot with delicious food! It's tucked away a bit but search it out in Morro Bay as you'll be happy you did. I almost always order pancakes for breakfast and these were some of the best I've had.

Great breakfast spot right next door to our hotel. The staff was very friendly and it looks like a lot of locals go there too.

We almost past Carla's by. It looks a bit shabby from the outside, but once inside it is country quaint and very inviting. They offer a variety of scrambles, omelets, pancakes, waffles, and combos. I ordered the spinach, mushroom, cream cheese omelet, sans the cheese. It came with home fries, choice of toast or muffin, and was huge and delicious.... More
