We loved this breakfast spot, they get really busy on the weekends, but that's when they serve their Harbor Eggs Benedict, and it is well worth the wait!! The owner is really nice and brings coffee out to customers eagerly waiting to be seated, and all the staff is really nice.

We stopped here and ate breakfast. It was really good. I had the chili verde omelette. Omg, I want another, so yummy! Husband had the chicken fried steak & loved it. He really enjoyed the gravy! Service was pretty quick for being busy & they were nice. We would go back.

Came for breakfast at the recommendation of our motel, and are glad we did. A cute little diner-type place serving just breakfast and lunch. Our waitress, Amy, was friendly and helpful and efficient. I had a veggie scramble, served with potatoes and toast -- very generous portion and tasted great. My husband had eggs, pancakes and sausage -- also a... More

Our favorite place for breakfast in Morro Bay. Good location. Well prepared food. Great service. Nice owner with an interesting story - his book "Double Luck" can be found here. If they offered egg white substitutions (a consideration these days), I would have given it another star.

We've stayed in Morro Bay several times and somehow never found this restaurant until now. Maybe because it is at the north end of the Embarcadero. But the locals know where it is, and for good reason! We enjoyed a hearty breakfast in a clean, well decorated, friendly service restaurant. An amazing collection of coffee pots of all ages are...

It was observed that each person is greeted warmly and treated quite well. On this occasion, the owner/general manager (Gordon) Lu Chi Fa and server Amy greeted each person and in quite the teamwork fashion, delivered their appealing and tasty food right from the kitchen. If you like homemade corn beef hash for breakfast, stopping here is a must. It... More

Stopped in for lunch while traveling up the coast and so glad we did. Lots of great options for lunch and portions were generous. The decor is homey and cute. We even got to meet the owner, a very pleasant gentleman who emigrated to Calif from China many years ago.
