Love this place. Nice little hidden spot.The roast beef and pastrami sandwiches are the best!!! Must try!! Food is always great and comes out quick. The auju is so good to dip your sandwich it. Perfect outdoor viewing of the rock and the beach.

The Hofbrau in Morro Bay is a small casual Mom-&-Pop located on the waterfront of the Embarcadero. Although the name suggests German cuisine it is mostly a sandwich shop. Nothing fancy. You order at the counter and they prepare your food to order, including carving...More
