We discovered this neat restaurant looking out our motel window. It is larger than it looks since they expanded as stores became vacant. It opens at 6:30 am which is unusual for Morro Bay in Dec. The service is great and the food good. I had the Greek scramble with feta, tomato, spinach, olives, and artichokes. It was wonderful and... More

We had a wonderful breakfast outside on a beautiful November Saturday morning. Food was excellent and the pumpkin muffins were to die for. We have eaten here before and it was really good then. Don't forget to go to the gift shop attached. It has a great collection of items. I'm glad I didn't have any room in my suitcase!!

Ok place for breakfast. Waffles, eggs, bacon and coffee were fine. Waitresses and hostess appear to need a vacation. . . or maybe they were just having a bad day. Nothing special, but outdoor patio is nice on a sunny day.

We had excellent service and good food and enjoyed the pleasant atmosphere. We were asked if we wanted coffee as soon as we were seated, and then our waitress quickly took our orders. My husband had poached eggs, bacon, potatoes and toast and enjoyed his food. I had Cream of Wheat and a side order of yogurt -- the cereal... More

I went because of the good reviews here. It is essentially diner food and nothing more. The person who greeted us at the door was very rude, and we felt uncomfortable for the whole breakfast. Staff seemed confused about the orders and also not very accommodating. Would not go here again.

Friendly, clean diner with a large gift shop attached. Carla actualy exists! - she was working in the gift shop when we called. Food was good and came quickly. You can sit inside, or out on the patio area.

We love this place I'm addicted to the Greek scrabble it is so delicious. And there home made muffins are to die for. Hayley and Brandi are so much go to wait on you. I will deft be back no wonder this place has had the same ownership for 29 years we love it ...
