Our favorite place for breakfast in Morro Bay. Good location. Well prepared food. Great service. Nice owner with an interesting story - his book "Double Luck" can be found here. If they offered egg white substitutions (a consideration these days), I would have given it another star.

It was observed that each person is greeted warmly and treated quite well. On this occasion, the owner/general manager (Gordon) Lu Chi Fa and server Amy greeted each person and in quite the teamwork fashion, delivered their appealing and tasty food right from the kitchen.

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
