Authentic Diner Dining at Frankie and Lola’s in Morro Bay

We dined as a guest of the venue


On our first morning in Morro Bay, we woke up hungry and ready to try the favorite local diner, Frankie and Lola’s. With raving Yelp reviews, the restaurant truly lives up to their reputation offering visitors a true diner dining experience. We took our seat on the outdoor patio where we could see partial views of the water and enjoyed the cool breezes while sipping on a cup of “sexy” coffee.



The kids menu was one of the most reasonably priced kids menus that I’ve ever seen and also featured healthy choices – shocking right? My two older kids ordered the Mickey Mouse shaped pancakes, and my younger son decided to order the kid’s breakfast plate. The pancakes were huge and came with either powdered sugar or chocolate chips. The kids breakfast plate came with a good sized helping of eggs, bacon, and potatoes. The kids enjoyed every bite of their breakfast while coloring on the paper menu before transforming them into paper airplanes.




I was on the fence between wanting to order the fried green tomato eggs Benedict and Chilaquiles, but the server highly recommended the chilaquiles that didn’t disappoint my taste buds. The dish was large enough for two people to eat, and the chilaquiles came piled on top of a large helping of freshly made breakfast potatoes. If you haven’t had chilaquiles before, Frankie and Lola’s are made with tortillas sautéed with chorizo and tomato salsa. The tortillas are then topped with scrambled eggs, queso Oaxaca, guajillo, avocado and sour cream.


The staff at Frankie and Lola’s treated us like family, and we will always remember our dining experience at this local diner. Make sure and don’t leave the restaurant without a trip to the bathroom where you’ll get to see the unique pictures on the wall. After breakfast, work off your calories by renting a surrey bike cruiser at Farmer’s Kites and Surreys that’s just a couple of doors over.
