Stopped for breakfast on Thanksgiving morning. Everything we had was great, as was the service. View of Morro Rock out the window was amazing. Even though it was an overcast day, loved the big windows. Would definitely visit again when in the area. PS, loved...More

Went to Dorns for our Anniversary. As always, we were not disappointed! We had a great table by the window overlooking the bay. Both of our dinners were excellent! This is our go to place when we are in Morro Bay.

Good place to sit and enjoy the view of Morrow Rock. Food is basic, tasty, but nothing creative. Great service and the muffins are a better choice than toast.

Comfy, scenic spot. The food (salmon) was delicious, prepared perfectly. Service was excellent, cheerfully accommodating our large group's request for separate checks. I recommend this spot for a wonderful dinner with a view.
