This is the third time my husband and I have been to the Cowgirl Cafe for breakfast and we will definitely be back! The service is quick and friendly (but without feeling rushed) even when it is super busy as it was on New Year's Day. The location is also easy to get to but parking can be a challenge... More

We went here for a family breakfast before a meeting and all wound up having the homemade chili. The chili here has beans in it so beware, but it is very flavorful and delicious. It comes with saltine crackers on the side. They will put cheese and onions on top if you like. The cafe is very cutely decorated. They... More

Cowgirl Cafe is only open for breakfast and lunch . . . so don't get addicted to their huge burgers and crave one in the evening! The food is always good and the portions are huge. You will never leave there hungry. It features a homey atmosphere, fun little hidden gem.

This is a nice place to have breakfast. They have all the usuals plus one or two unusuals. The service is friendly and fast. However, it's my opinion that the lunch just isn't up to snuff. The menu is uncreative and what is there is prepared only so-so.

We were touring the back roads around the five cities and happened on the Cowgirl. Just before it closed. Friendly and fast service and great food. Kept the coffee coming. Used great bread. Much better than the chain places by CA 101.

I get together with a small group of retired guys for breakfast on Thursdays. We go to different places around the county. There is more than one Cowgirl Café. They are all great for breakfast and lunch. Depending upon which direction we are going, we'll go to Atascadero, Nipomo, or San Luis Obispo. They all do a fine job.
