Stop for breakfast and enjoyed our food. Not fancy in fact our food came on paper plates but the food was good. Small variety of breakfast foods and a nice selection of pastries.

Had a crab melt, which was ok for a small cafe. Very convenient if going to the move theater in the same large complex. Parking was a challenge, but doable.

We have only visited the Monterey street location and of course tried the excellent clam chowder, however this cafe has a nice variety of menu items and is great for breakfast too! Friendly happy employees add to the experience

We always enjoy stopping here when we go to Morro Bay. Obviously the clam chowder is amazing. But also the shrimp tacos are my favorite. And the hamburgers are also delicious!
