“Outstanding breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2013

We have eaten at Dorn's for dinner numerous times over the years, but this was the first time we had been there for breakfast. The food was very good, especially the muffins. Also good were the french toast, potatoes, and zucchini and jack cheese omelet. Dorn's is an expensive choice for dinner, but breakfast is no more expensive than anywhere else. The only drawback is the coffee: terrible and not very hot. I would have rated it a 5 if not for the coffee.

“Relaxing atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013 via mobile

Greeted at the door and seated right away where ever I was comfortable. Nice and relaxing. If you go, be sure to have the clam chowder... The staff is attentive , but not overbearing, which is nice when you want time just enjoy the view. The staff is big on making sure you don't miss the sunset so they lift up the sunshades for a great view...well worth it. The cost is not too expensive and the food is excellent, especially the clam chowder and the lemon cheesecake for dessert. As for appetizers, their zucchini sticks are great!

“A pleasant surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2013

Without a reservation we stopped at Dorn's on a Sunday evening and were quickly seated event though there were only a couple of tables unoccupied - something of a surprise on what is traditionally a slow night in the restaurant business. It appeared that many of our fellow diners were locals, not tourists. The menu is comprehensive, the quality of the food was excellent and the service impeccable. Highly recommended..

If you want a great view of Morro Bay and great food then go to Dorn's. Definitely try the clam chowder and the sourdough bread.
