“Great food and lots if it”
Reviewed 9 May 2014 via mobile

Hi travelers. My name is terry foster. I've been eating at fat cats from day one. I'm a native of San Luis obispo, born there in 1952. Carl the owner usually greats u at the entrance unless he's out swinging a golf club lol. There's out an indoor dinning. The food is exelant an plenty full. I know yuol love it an tell friends about it

“Great Place for Breakfast!”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

Good variety of menu items and nice view of the harbor. Machaca was a little bland, but the hotcake my son ordered was perfect. The hubby had the chorizo scramble, & that was yummy. Very nice staff, as well. We sat on the patio, which I highly recommend.

“Great little coffee shop at the base of the pier.”
Reviewed 31 March 2014 via mobile

Fat Cat's is a fun upscale coffee shop that had an extensive menu. Everything is good. I had the bacon and avocado omelette. Service is prompt they do get busy on the weekend. Prices are not the cheapest but reasonable.

“Bland greasy food”
Reviewed 15 March 2014

Liked: nice location overlooking harbor, service was friendly.
Disliked: not good value for quality of food. Scallops were soggy, bland, heavily breaded. Portions were huge, quantity over quality. My husband had fried oysters, bland over -breaded. Maybe we made poor choices, my daughters eggs Benedict looked good, huge portion , she couldn't finish it all but it was fine.

“Hello, hello! Can we get some service?”
Reviewed 1 March 2014

The food may be OK, but what we remember most is the lackadaisical service. The entry greeting is perfunctory, food service is haphazard, and you leave without any acknowledgement that you just dropped $35 for a couple sandwiches. We stopped going here, despite the cool location near Port Harford Pier.
