Stopped for breakfast after a recommendation from the front desk clerk at the hotel we stayed at, good coffee and breakfast and pricing is fair. It's more of a deli organized restaurant, walk up to the counter and order. I ordered a breakfast sandwich on a croissant and was very pleased. Parking is at a premium, but so is most... More

I ordered the fish and chips, he fish was extremely greasy with the breading not even being crispy, along with that the french fries that it came with were half baked and frozen. I was not pleased.

We have never been able to get into Splash in Pismo. So I was thrilled to find a location in SLO. The hot dog was huge & I fully intended to eat 1/2 until I started eating it & realized it was GREAT. So were the curly fries! They also had a clean handicapped restroom which unfortunately was the only... More

We went here because of the good write-ups in trip advisor and because it is dog friendly. There is a small side patio where you can eat with your dog, but other than that I found the food just "good" but not worth going out of my way for. And parking is a problem; very few spaces and very tight.

This little gem is a great place for lunch. We had our 2 granddaughters with us and the menu worked perfectly for the 4 of us. They get very busy and the lines were long, but the wait was worth it. Lots of bakery goodies and alot of choices. We will eat there again.

I recently took a short trip down the California coast and needed a nice place to grab some lunch. A friend had recommended that I try the Splash Cafe. She raved about their clam chowder. I read some of the reviews online. With such glowing endorsements, how could I resist? I plotted my course and put it in my itinerary.... More

Good sandwiches & burgers, the pastries looked great. We stopped mid-day for a snack and the place was buzzing.

Enjoyed a salad and the fish and chips for lunch; very fresh. Too bad it is so small and has so few tables.

Splash Cafe on Monterey & California st offers gluten free muffins and delicious coffee! Open at 7 am my husband and i enjoy breakie or lunch, fish tacos or healthy salads. The close walk to downtown SLO and the hotels & B&B nearby let us visit with the many tourists who come through town and grab a bite at Splash.... More
