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

Nice view of sunset over Morro Bay. Good food (roast beef sandwich was really tasty). Staff was little bit disorganized, but in a good way. Recommend for low price and fast service.
