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.

“Beautiful view, good breakfast”
Reviewed January 11, 2013 via mobile

Lovely views of Morro Bay and Rock from this friendly waterfront cafe with a coffee house feel. Hubby had a standard American breakfast (bacon, eggs, toast, potatoes) while I had classic eggs benedict. Both were good. Nice touches: they weren't stingy with the hollandaise and the meals included slices of fresh cantaloupe and pineapple. Our one complaint: expected better coffee - just like the kind of place that would serve a good cup of joe, but it wasn't.

“Unbelievable!”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

We were strolling along Morro Bay and saw a sign advertising Happy Hour with a glass of wine for 4 dollars. The seating on the deck was delightful overlooking the sunset so we took advantage of the offer and ordered two glasses of wine. It was so nice that we ordered another two glasses and saw the sun set.
When the bill came, we felt duped as there was no sign of the advertised Happy Hour and we were charged 24 dollars plus tax. Not being too impressed I didn't leave a tip.
This is where the unbelievable came in! We were walking down the street a fair distance from the venue when an irate waiter accosted us shouting that is it customary to leave a tip and where was it. He repeated this and was rather abusive.
If this is service with a smile worthy of a tip, the wait staff need to go to charm school. I clearly made the right decision.
We wouldn't return!

If you are in Morro Bay, eat breakfast here. Small quaint place, AMAZING views, good service, good California breakfasts - huge breakfast burritos, huevos rancheros...yummmm. Best start to our day in Morro Bay.

“Great clam chowder.”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

Excellent clam chowder and wonderful outdoor seating. Just wish that they stayed open later. They close @ 3:00. It would be a great spot to sit and have happy hour. Oh well, maybe in the future.

“Great View, Love the Beers On Tap”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

A great little cafe on the edge of the water. Stopped in here for a beer and couldn't resist getting a bread bowl of clam chowder, too. They toasted the "lid" of the bowl with a little garlic butter, which I thought was a nice touch. The chowder was creamy, delicious and not skimpy with the clams. But I'll be honest, the main reason we stopped in is because we saw they had Alaskan Amber on tap, my hubby's favorite and not the easiest to find. Very friendly service, I would definitely go back... already know I want to try their grilled cheese, it looked delicious!
