“Good ole' Dorns”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

I grew up going to Dorns for breakfast. My grandfather would take me in the mornings before the fog burned off the bay. I would drink hot chocolate while he had his coffee. Oh yeah, and the food is great. The service is great. The view is spectacular. With so many places in Morro Bay that serve great food, it's hard to distinguish one place from another. . . that is, until you consider the history and tradition of Dorn's. It is a Morro Bay institution and worth your business.

“Good Service, Good Food”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

We were seated promptly and received friendly service. The busboy didn't have much English though, and poured coffee rather than tea, and didn't understand our request for more hot water. The omelettes were fresh and delicious as was the home made bran muffin.

“If you are looking for great food and friendly staff Cal Poly Parents this is a must”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

Our daughter has been at Cal Poly for a few years and we have visited many times. We must have been to all the restaurants in SLO, this is our new favorite. Breakfast on Sunday morning is wonderful , make reservations, Dinner too is great with a nice bar inside. We had the halibut and a steak dinner both were equally wonderful. Well worth our hard earned money , eat like a Queen!

“Best food we have had in Morro Bay!”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

This is one of my top four restaurants on the Pacific coast. The menu selections have a wide variety, the meals are delicious, and the service is great. It is not cheap, but well worth the price!

and subsequent lack of view which I had hoped to share with family; the food and service was excellent.

Recommended to all who visit Morro Bay!
