Not fancy, but always good food. Being right by the little marina makes for a nice backdrop to the enclosed porch seating. Easy parking.

People and staff were great. The best food in Morro Bay. Great view. If one doesn't visit this place then the trip to Morro Bay is incomplete.

We stopped at this restaurant because it was close to our hotel ( Inn at Morro Bay). We opted to sit outside since it was a nice evening. They had plenty of patio heaters to keep us warm even though they really weren't needed. The...More

This restaurant is very popular: book early if you do not want to wait outside. Once seated we ordered a salad and a fish. Both were good and tasty but not outstanding. Price were reasonable. A good place to go.

Description
Bayside Cafe is nestled in the beautiful State Park Marina across from the entrance to the State Park Campground on lower State Park Road. The views of the back bay are astounding and unique.The food is very fresh with all homemade items including soups, salad dressing, sauces and desserts. You will not be disappointed by the friendly service and wide range of food items offered. A dog friendly outdoor patio is also a plus for our animal lovers.Oh, and by the way, we are NOT open for breakfast as has been stated by trip adviser.....sorry.Open every day for lunch starting at 11:00am and including service of dinners on Thursday through Sunday.See you there.
