The Hungry Fisherman has been in Morro Bay for at least 50 years. It is as close as you will get to an old school café. Food is pretty standard. Very homey!

We enjoyed breakfast at the old Hungry Fisherman. I say old because it's a breakfast joint from the 70's. We had the chili verde omelette and pancakes. Pancakes were a little dry. The chili verde was killer. Service was very good and the prices were...More
