We had breakfast here after seeing some good reviews for the food. It was a disappointment. Coffee had that sour in-the-pot-too-long taste and the home fries were mushy and not flavored at all. There are better (and more expensive) choices in town.

Modestly priced family owned restaurant open for breakfast and lunch. Serving up great omelets and scrambles along with other traditional breakfast items, including scratch made biscuits and gravy. Friendly service and a never empty coffee cup.

Lots has happened since I first visited Carla's in 2013--all for the better. She is still there, but has remodeled, opened a large adjacent gift shop and greatly improved both menu, food and service. If you go for brunch as we did, you'll find absolutely superb soups--we had the "bean", which had more smoked bacon and mushrooms than anywhere and... More

Carlas' Country Kitchen is a great place for breakfast. Off the beaten path, a couple of blocks up from the Embarcadero, it's a locals hangout. Good food, reasonable prices, and the wait maybe short - if you're early.

My family was visiting Morrow Bay from Texas and decided to stop here for lunch. The Breakfast was excellent! I had the seafood omelette and their Bran Muffin. Everything is made from scratch and the seafood was fresh. My daughter loved their hamburger and chocolate chip muffin. My husband loved his Breakfast too! Would highly recommend this restaurant to everyone!... More

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!!

Laid back feel, great service, and awesome food. Little pricey...but you get a lot of food for the price!

CARLA's Country Kitchen is not exactly hidden or a secret.. Locals know all about it. We have been going to Morro Bay for years. ...this is always a must. BREAKFAST is sacred to some and this is a great way to start your day.. Carla's has been there for a long time and still just as friendly and welcoming as... More

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.
