Good Choice on the Harbor in Morro

An always reliable choice for seafood, this place is especially good on warmer days with lots of outdoor seating right on the water.

Even in early January it was warm on the deck at lunch. A half sandwich (BLT) with tortilla soup was well prepared, and the Mahi sandwich was excellent. They have a pretty good selection of wine by the glass as well.

We went for breakfast and sat right by the water, so picturesque. The service is genuinely friendly with that down home diner feel. The portions were large and the ingredients very fresh, served up hot out of the kitchen. Tried the Neptune's Benedict and there was a mountain of crab and shrimp. Couldn't have had a better meal before hitting... More

The food and service was good. Seated by the sea was really cold during winter. We moved from outside to indoor dining. The wait for dinner took quite a while though. However, when we were served, all the food came together. Everyone was satisfied with their food. I had the lobster bisque on bread bowl but wasn't too fantastic though.... More

Wonderful food served on the waterfront. Always consistent, good salads, omelette, burgers, and American food served in good amounts with a view that just can not be beat.

I used to work in that shopping building and I would get their Tortilla Soup all the time! Great place to go to sit outside and have a peaceful breakfast or lunch with friends and family or by yourself. They have a wind shield so don't be scared to sit outside.

We had lunch here. My hubby got the Chipotle chicken sandwich and I got the turkey sandwhich with a cup of chicken tortilla soup. Both of us thought our meals were really good. The kids shared a bowl of clam chowder and we all agreed it was delicious! We will likely be back!

We stopped for lunch here primarily because of the location overlooking Morro Bay. The food is good: pretty straightforward cafe food with salads, sandwiches, burritos, tacos, etc. If the cafe was not along the bay I'm not sure we would've been thrilled about returning, but the view is great and the food is good enough for a Sunday brunch or...
