We thought we'd try this place out for dinner and we were very disappointed. We ordered as soon as we sat down, and after 30min we still didn't have our food. We had to get our order to go because it was taking so long. Our waitress said that it usually takes 13min to bake, but I still don't understand... More

This place is unique with a good beer selection and menu. This is a fun place to meet up with friends or even bring the family.

I wish I would have found this restaurant sooner! It will definitely be my new go-to SLO dining place. Ordered a bowl of the Irish Stew and a Bangers 'n Mash Pasty to split between the two of us. Be forewarned: the "bowl" is HUGE and could have probably fed both of us just on its own. Served with some... More

Try this place; it is so good at what it does. They really have got to grips with the pasty tradition and re-set it in a California context. We chose from the lunch specials and were delighted by the flavours of the pasties and how the meal was presented. And by the size of the portions - tasty, hearty, but... More

My title says it all! Great (and fresh) food and "different" in a good way. This little hole-in-the-wall will definitely be on our "must" list whenever in SLO.

We went for Thanksgiving weekend to San Luis Obispo and found this excellent pasty restaurant. We liked it so much we ate there twice in 3 days! It's reasonably priced, has good service and is vegetarian friendly. On our second visit we were tempted by the desserts. We had the cookie dough and nutella pasty. I thought it sounded odd,... More

A real side-street find, just south of the Mission on Chorro. I had a mid-evening meal with my wife and daughter - we all loved our food and the friendly wait staff. It's a small place with limited seating inside and on the sidewalk, but very enjoyable. There were several choices or "pies," and each one was very tasty. We... More

We accidentally parked right outside the café and I was thrilled to spot PASTYS! Being U.K. born and lunchtime, this was right up my alley. Absolutely loved the place, the staff and the food! Also very reasonable. Too bad I live in Canada as I won't be able to go back.

Yesterday 9/24/2013, we happened to find this wonderful little Irish place, serving only pastys ,(pausetees) the food was delightful, the service friendly and attentive, and there is even music every Tuesday & Wednesday, beginning at 6PM. Very definitely something differerent, and exciting in dining. Do visit them at your first opportunity, you will definitely not be disappointed.

Grabbed lunch. Curious as to fare, and not that impressed once it arrived. Pasty were paste-y, mushy concoctions, surprising lack of flavor. Wife enjoyed the salad side. Might consider going back for sandwiches and brew. Street cafe tables, for people watching - charming neighborhood.
