Had breakfast with my dad and his friend on a Sat morning. Place had people but not crowed. Had a choice to eat inside or out. Staff was friendly and helpful. Food was hot and tasty. We all enjoyed our meal and would eat here again.

We have enjoyed Breakfast at this restaurant several times over the years and they always make a great breakfast and we think it is second to only Dorns breakfast.

This is a must for breakfast in Morro Bay... Breakfast comes with 2 homemade muffins. My husband had the Pooney scramble it was excellent. I had the Pozo omelette it was really good. Very friendly atmosphere. Great price point. Totally a small town "country diner" vibe. We will be back the next time we are in town! Next time we... More

Whenever I visit my friend in San Luis Obispo we always take the trip to Morro Bay for breakfast at Carla's, which they offer all-day. We love it every time. I always get an omelette or a scramble, which they will readily prepare to meet your preferences. My special preference is to get a side of their excellent country gravy... More

We had breakfast here after seeing some good reviews for the food. It was a disappointment. Coffee had that sour in-the-pot-too-long taste and the home fries were mushy and not flavored at all. There are better (and more expensive) choices in town.

Modestly priced family owned restaurant open for breakfast and lunch. Serving up great omelets and scrambles along with other traditional breakfast items, including scratch made biscuits and gravy. Friendly service and a never empty coffee cup.

Lots has happened since I first visited Carla's in 2013--all for the better. She is still there, but has remodeled, opened a large adjacent gift shop and greatly improved both menu, food and service. If you go for brunch as we did, you'll find absolutely superb soups--we had the "bean", which had more smoked bacon and mushrooms than anywhere and... More

Carlas' Country Kitchen is a great place for breakfast. Off the beaten path, a couple of blocks up from the Embarcadero, it's a locals hangout. Good food, reasonable prices, and the wait maybe short - if you're early.

My family was visiting Morrow Bay from Texas and decided to stop here for lunch. The Breakfast was excellent! I had the seafood omelette and their Bran Muffin. Everything is made from scratch and the seafood was fresh. My daughter loved their hamburger and chocolate chip muffin. My husband loved his Breakfast too! Would highly recommend this restaurant to everyone!... More

We discovered this neat restaurant looking out our motel window. It is larger than it looks since they expanded as stores became vacant. It opens at 6:30 am which is unusual for Morro Bay in Dec. The service is great and the food good. I had the Greek scramble with feta, tomato, spinach, olives, and artichokes. It was wonderful and... More
