    Splash Cafe

    12 reviews

    This sunny cafe in the Uptown district is the bakery where those famous sourdough bread bowls for clam chowder down at the Pismo Beach branch get made. It's cleanier and cozier than the Pismo location, and it's a handy stop for breakfast pastries and coffee or a healthy deli-style lunch. Go antique shopping nearby after you've had a bite, or ...

    Black Sheep Bar & Grill

    Hard to explain about the vibe here. Sometimes it is chilled and sometimes it can get out of control. It varies. Black Sheep brings me back memories of my 21st. Let's just say they serve you some interesting birthday shots. If you're looking for a bar to take your 21st year old friend, should try Black Sheep Bar. They serve ...

    We like it here because they offer a lot of healthy options. If you haven't seen their new fit options then you should check it out. Whole wheat pancakes, egg whites, veggies, turkey bacon etc. It's consistent and affordable and healthy.

    Mo's Smokehouse BBQ

    1 review

    There's a lot of debate over which place in SLO serves the best tri-tip barbecue beef sandwich, and I think Mo's is a pretty strong contender. The tri-tip is tender, the BBQ sauce savory and the service usually lightning-fast. Just don't expect it to be super-cheap; you're paying for the famous name.

    Creekside Brewing Company

    1 review

    On your tour of SLO County brewpubs, you've got to stop here. Can't really speak for the food, which we only tried after they first opened, but we often meet friends here for a pint of espresso porters and a chat at the open-air tables on the patio out back overlooking the creek. A great place to just hang for ...

    Cowgirl Cafe

    1 review

    Great place to bring the family for breakfast. Amazing atmosphere and great waitresses. This is a great all around American style diner with a bit of a country flair.

    Frog & Peach Pub

    1 review

    Never eaten here, but they do host local live music. The music was great when I was there, and the spot was packed. A hip spot to hang out in the area.

    Asian/Mediterranean/Southwest fusion for under $10! Not every menu item is a winner, but most offerings are pretty tasty. Located in the trendy part of downtown SLO, Mondeo Pronto is good place to grab a bite to eat before a movie, or as a break from exploring the many shops and boutiques in the area.

    Crushed Grape Wine & Gifts

    1 review

    When you're out and about in San Luis Obispo and are looking for a quick bite, stop by the Crushed Grape (located in the Madonna Plaza) and try one of their delicious deli sandwiches. Once you are there make your way past the outdoor patio, and step inside to find a sandwich counter lost amongst a wide array of fun ...

    Native Lounge

    1 review

    Don't get me wrong, I don't not like this place, but it's not a place I really enjoy. It's like a space in a small town that's trying to be like super fancy clubs in big cities (think a side sitting room in a Vegas club) with all the lights and couches and (here's the pincher...) very expensive drinks. For ...

    Enzo's East Coast Eatery

    1 review

    You know what SLO really needs? A place serving NY-style pizza, Philly grinders and Italian ice -- the whole East Coast food-works experience. But after trying this place twice, It doesn't much remind me of food from back when I lived east of Mississippi. It's more like Californicized take-out food for students, and nothing I've tasted here has stood out ...
