Stopped in for lunch while traveling up the coast and so glad we did. Lots of great options for lunch and portions were generous. The decor is homey and cute. We even got to meet the owner, a very pleasant gentleman who emigrated to Calif from China many years ago.

Handy as right in town and seating outside to wait for a table when it's busy. Food itself quite average but good on a budget. Apple juice was horrible

This restaurant is definitely a hidden gem in Morro Bay. The food is fantastic. I had a veggie omelette with country potatoes and my grandson had pancakes and bacon. Our waitress Amy gladly moved us to another table away from a rude customer. She truly is a lovely person, and deserves accolades for her excellent service and attitude. I thought... More

From the outside this little restaurant may not look much but the breakfast was phenomenal. Took us totally by surprise. Very fresh, large portions and delicious. Service was great. Highly recommended.
