The Morro Bay Chamber of Commerce shines a spotlight on businesses who are adapting, updating and thriving during rough times created by the coronavirus pandemic.
The Chamber presented Grape Leaf, 844 Main St., with the Spotlight Award for their resiliency during the pandemic.
“They’ve adjusted their menu and operations to continue feeding our community – and we are especially thankful for their pizzas! Please stop by and show Abe and Marie some love,” said Chamber representatives.
Grape Leaf serves Middle Eastern food from family recipes, specialized coffee drinks and the recently introduced wood-fired pizzas.
Three Stacks and a Rock Brewing Company, 3118 Main St., also received a Spotlight Award this month for their resilience during the pandemic.
“They’re serving food and beer to go, and are one of favorite places to drink craft brew in SLO County,” the Chamber said.
Three Stacks serves craft beers and cinder along with selections from an ever changing food menu.
Also in the spotlight were Sunshine Health Foods and Shine Café, 415 Morro Bay Blvd.
“They’ve gone above and beyond to keep their employees and patrons safe during the pandemic, and continue to deliver exceptional service to our community,” the Chamber said.
Shine is a vegan and vegetarian venue that uses local, organic ingredients and provides gluten-free options. Sunshine stocks a variety of natural and organic food from the local area as well as unique items from around the world.
Joe White and the team at Port House, 885 Embarcadero, were also honored.
“They’ve been open, closed, take out only, outside dining added, and a mix of all of those since the pandemic hit in March,” the Chamber said. “It hasn’t been easy, yet they continue to ensure we are well fed! Thank you Port House.”
Port House offers a lunch and dinner menu featuring steak, pasta and seafood.
