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.

“Great outdoor patio on the water”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

We had the best BLTA (bacon, lettuce, tomato and avocado) sandwich ever! We sat on the sunny patio right on the water. It was peaceful and lovely. The next day, we returned for lunch inside the bar (it was windy). Our Reuben and turkey sandwiches and our soups were only average and we were a bit disappointed. We will go there again, however, for the patio and the BLTAs!

“Updated Review: Learned Why the Poor Service...”
Reviewed May 25, 2012

Over one year ago I reviewed Blue Skye and found the food OK and the service lackadaisical. Subsequent visits found the same situation, and the last one this month perhaps revealed the reason for the service issues: one of the owners, male, was chatting with some regulars at the counter, we could hear the conversation. He was telling them about a regular customer who complained that his soup was too cold, then another time, that it was too hot. He remarked, "What does he expect? This is not Burger King." The definite impression was of an owner who was not interested in what his customers, his livelihood, thought of his service. This attitude can fully explain the poor service always encountered. "This is not Burger King." Indeed.

“Nice view but average food”
Reviewed April 9, 2012

Had breakfast here while in Morro Bay. Enjoyed watching the sea otters swim but didn't find our breakfast to be exceptional. Nice friendly waitress though.

“We were super-impressed”
Reviewed April 8, 2012

This review is a bit late, so some details are fuzzy now. =/ As I recall, though, we were looking for brunch when most places were past lunch service. Were it not for a TV spot on The Visitor's Channel in our place of lodging, we might not have found this place since it's tucked around the corner and in the back of a building on the Embarcadero. It's a great location, though - the views are *spectacular* - whether you choose a table inside or out.

We were so impressed with the food and service that we returned the next day. These folks pay attention to detail. We can recommend it highly and would return without hesitation. Note to owners: your cook/chef is a keeper. Don't let him/her get away!! =)
