Description: Spectacular views and outdoor tables make this "Bistro on the Bay" a perfect spot to relax, enjoy a latte or organic coffee and hot breakfast.Breakfast is served all day. In addition to the indoor seating, there are 18 outdoor waterfront tables to enjoy watching the seals, otters, pelicans and other nature as well as watching the sailboats drift by. There is soothing live weekend entertainment in the morning and it gets a bit kicked up in the afternoon during happy hour and they have their own house wine among a great wine list. The scene is gorgeous and a glassed in area is provided to enjoy the outdoors when it is windy. Sunset is beautiful from this location while dinner is served. Fresh local seafood is the main dish along with pastas and fresh salads.

“Favorite Morro Bay restaurant”
Reviewed January 7, 2012

We go here often, especially for a late lunch when the weather is nice enough to sit outside in their small wind-shielded dining area. The ambiance is very casual but the views are great, whether eyeing the boats docked in the harbor, or waiting for the seals or otters to swim by. The food items are varied, and you can order breakfast plates all day long. One favorite is "The Rock," a dish of eggs, potatoes, bacon, cheddar and swiss cheese, topped with sour cream and avocado. The Cobb salad is also nice, although it was a bit short on the lettuce when we ate there last time. The veggie sandwich is delicious, with hummus, cucumbers, avocados and sprouts. Wine and beer are reasonably priced, and they also have happy hour with 2 for 1 beer and wine specials. You can also sit inside at one of the dozen or so wood tables if the weather does not cooperate.

“A Nice Little Place”
Reviewed December 31, 2011

We had dinner here our first night in Morro Bay as we were just looking for a casual place to eat. It was a cozy little place and it was nice to sea some seafood items on the menu as the first two places we checked out just had burgers and sandwiches.

I had the lobster bisque in a bread bowl served with garlic bread which was satisfying while my wife had the fish tacos made with Mahi Mahi. The fish tacos were very good as it was a nice blend of sweet and savory for it came with a pickled mango salsa.

The apple turnover we had for dessert was only ok.

The service was pleasant and we would come back if we were looking for a casual place to eat that was reasonably priced.

“13 Potatoes?......Really?!”
Reviewed December 29, 2011

Very small portions. Two eggs, over-easy, served on a "bed" of 13 potato squares. Meager. My wife and I spent $35 for very disappointing meal.

“Wouldn't recommend at all”
Reviewed November 24, 2011

Had dinner on Thanksgivin' day...ok, not high season and most places were closed.
We were offered a menu with salad, turkey and a desert for a reasonable price...but the table was dirty as it as been just used by someone else, the salads were embarassing, the main course was something that you can eat in hospital...and the desert was a chocolate cake with nothing special and a pumpkin pie just the same.
The only thing we liked was the waiter, he was nice and smiling and fast (oh...right, there were just 3 tables occupied).

Maybe a bad evening? we won't know for sure!

“Breakfast heaven”
Reviewed November 23, 2011

I had a breakfast burrito one morning. Really great homemade salsa and guacamole with sour cream and melted cheese on top, more cheese inside with eggs, onions, mushrooms and potatoes. Really friendly service without a long wait. Next morning on my way home, they made it for me again, 15 mins before they start cooking breakfasts. Very nice. I'll be back in June!
