Morro Bay Blvd, Morro Bay, San Luis Obispo California


Morro Bay Blvd is a lovely, hilly street with ocean views, lined with cute cafes on the 200-600 blocks. It is a few blocks back from the main Embarcadero in Morro Bay town, uphill. The road is lined with adorable trees that bloom red in September. This is the less touristy area, where the locals eat and hang out at coffee shops. My favorite cafe here is Thai Elephant, with consistently good food (try the pineapple red curry), in a cozy setting. Shine Cafe has a cheerful, hippie feel, a Vegan cafe (try their black bean tostada salad), with a market next door. Across the street is Buttercup Bakery, with a sunny, very pleasant outdoor seating area, and plenty of friendly people who say hello to each other. It has a sandwich made with Dutch Crunch bread, the bread from San Luis Obispo that is so yummy! They have summer concerts in August and Sept, Thurs 5-8pm. Other cafes to try are: Top Dog Coffee Bar, Pizza Port, Gilligan's Sandwich Shop, Rudie's Rock Espresso which has seating in the back, Food Mix (authentic Mexican with a nice mural on the outer wall), Mi Casa (authentic Mexican), and High Tide, an acai bowl place with bright blue umbrellas outside.
Beads by the Bay is a store that sells beads. In the Groove sell records, and Central Coast Music sell guitars and instruments. There are several private art stores as well.
Along the street are flower planters overflowing with petunias- what a pretty sight!
