My wife and I eat here every time we come to Morro. Yummy omelets. They always keep your cofee cup full, no having to ask. Never a long wait to get your meal.

Came in for a late breakfast/early lunch. We were at the tail end of service (got there at 1, closes at 1:30). Not very big, but fairly busy. It seemed they were short staffed that day and the waitress was trying to do it all....More

Pleasant owner and waitress, but food was just average. Ordered a waffle with pecans and was surprised to see the whole pecans scattered across the top. Harder to eat and not pecan flavored bites as if it was in the batter. Asked for crispy bacon...More

Oct 11, 2014. Ran by the restaurant on a morning run and went back with my sons. Place was full--always a good sign--so we were given coffee and sat outside. The bottom line is the food is great, portions are large, coffee is perfect and...More

My Granddaughter, who is 9, has been reading your book and would like to eat at your café and have you sign her book. Does Lu Chi Fa still come to the café everyday. If he does, what time would be the best time to have him sign the book? Thank you!
