We are going to spend New Year's in Cayucous, and heard something about Hoppe's. Anyone have a menu recommendation, or any recommendation for that area?

  1. There's a place on your right just before you walk onto the pier. Cash only. Great fish and chips, a great red fish chowder and, believe it or not, a great hamburger.

    And if your're in town overnight the Old Cayucos Saloon is a fun place to drink and listen to live music.

    I wish I was there now.

    1. re: 2 chez mike

      That would be the Pier Cafe. They used to have a pretty good bread pudding with either whiskey or rum sauce I believe.

    2. I ate at Hoppe's in September and enjoyed a pretty spectacular meal. I'm notoriously bad at remembering what I ate or how to describe it, so forgive me. Also, I was one in a party of four vegetarians, so I can't help out with any meat/fish-type suggestions. They also have an excellent wine list, which is part of the reason I've forgotten the meal. :-) Definitely check it out.

      1. I've heard lots of great things about Hoppies too. I'm in San Luis Obispo but haven't had a chance to eat there... But if you have enough time during your visit try Taco Temple. They have a very small place in Cayucous and a bigger place in Morro Bay.. The food is really really wonderful.. Blackened fish tacos, scallop burritos, mango salsa, huge deserts.. just really good stuff.. yum yum yum...
