“Yeah, ok”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012 via mobile

Food fine, my scramble was pretty good. There was just one over worked waitress who was very friendly and doing her best considering how busy the place was . The owner was watching her like a hawk and seemed to be constantly barking orders , instead of giving her some help.

It is for this reason I can't give full marks.

“GREAT Joe's Special!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

I like this little place very much--unfortunately Gordon is closed early afternoon so I do not get a chance to visit it as often as I would like.Excellent service,excellent food,very fast paced environment--sometimes there is a wait for a few,but you can have coffee outside while you wait and it's worth it.The place is clean and the staff is very efficient---the prices are reasonable as I recall and I would definitely say"you gotta try it"!

“Great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

Not only do I like to eat at the Coffee Pot Restaurant in Morro Bay, but the wait staff are excellent.
Orders are taken quickly, even when the restaurant is nearly full of customers. Thank you Sandy. When my wife orders French toast or a waffle, the syrup comes to the table warm. Nothing like a hot waffle with hot syrup. Don't forget to try the Popeye on the menu if you, like me are a lover of spinach. If you have to wait for a table, Gordon (the owner) will give you a cup (not stryrofoam) of hot coffee to help the wait. I have a suggestion if your scrambled eggs are bland, liven them up with a little salt and pepper or Tobasco. Works every time.

“breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

We just spent three days in Morro Bay, Calif. and stayed at the Days Inn. From there you can walk two blocks down to the water front and have a wonderful Breakfast. Gordon has owned the coffee pot for 25 years. One of the Waitress Sandy has been there for 20 years. I have Celiac Disease and they had no problem cooking mine seperate so there would be no cross contimation from food with wheat barley or Rye in it. We love the food, the people and the coffee.
