After nearly three decades of service, the Coffee Pot Restaurant has closed its doors, enabling owner Gordon Lu, to begin a well-deserved retirement. The restaurant has been a favorite of localas and a draw for a stream of visitors from other states and nations eager to meet the author of Double Luck: Memoirs of a Chinese Orphan. Amongst the many photos and awards on the resturant's walls is an especially valued certificate from the Morro Bay Chamber of Commerce recognizing Gordon as a national treasure. His feelings are the same for his home city and the many customers that having become part of his local family. He is extremely grateful for having had the opportunity to live and work in such a remarkable community. Special thanks to his crew for years of exceptional service.
