Only go here if the have 2 hrs for breakfast. Absolutely the slowest service you will find in SLO. And it continually gets worse. HELLO MANAGEMENT!!!!

Do yourself a favour and pay Sally Loo's Wholesome Cafe a visit if you ever find yourself in San Luis Obispo. I first went for brunch while visiting a girlfriend two years ago and we shared the acai bowl and egg sandwich - a taste of sweet and savoury and the perfect amount for both of us. This was the...

Nice little find. Definitely worth checking out. Organic cafe with tons of great options, for all - vegans/vegetarians/carnivores. Staff friendly and the place has a fun vibe.

Here is another great SLO place to take company for breakfast/brunch especially. They have a wide selection of healthy food ~ smoothies for your train trip, sandwiches and soup, pies, all fresh! The atmosphere is like an old book store with comfortable tables, couches and chairs.

I live in SLO and eat here all the time. I love the food and that they use all organic products. The coffee and tea is great and I especially love the Acai Bowl with gluten free granola or the egg sandwich with avocado. They usually have a great selection of scones and coffee cake as well. Sometimes it can... More

Since our son went to Cal Poly we've visited and eaten at Sally Loo's for over 5 years. Now that he's graduated we find ourselves stopping in for breakfast or lunch as a "midway point" on road trips to Malibu. The food is that good! Set in a rustic, casual atmosphere are assorted small tables with old chairs. Outside a... More

I definitely be going back to try something else on this breakfast menu. The Acai bowl with granola was delicious as well as the filled croissant. You have to cue and order at the counter and wait for a table but although busy all went smoothly and we got seated before the food arrived. I will certainly be going back.

We had lunch here, both had sandwiches, which were fine. Good vegetarian choices. The tea was good. Service was a little less friendly than other places we have been to. Unfortunately we didn't get to meet Sally Loo
