Don't miss this gem. Order from the bar and find a seat. Busy place all the time. Inexpensive too! Simple eats.

Had to visit this piece of history in Pismo. An icon of the area, the atmosphere was beach perfect but it was the level of service that made the visit!

We ate breakfast here this week following a recommendation from our hotel. The menu choice is good and the eggs were cooked perfectly. Just be aware they stop serving breakfast at 10 am
