We have gone through the years to their store in Pismo Beach and we are so happy they have this place now in San Luis Obispo. They have the best clam chowder ever and also the rest of their food is excellent.

There wasn't much money left on the company card for food that day so we searched on yelp for a place that was close to our hotel and cheap.

We were in SLO to see the Mission and stopped by this little place for lunch. We both had the Clam Chowder Bread Bowl and it delivered the taste we hoped for. The bread was fresh and tasty. The chowder was very good and satisfying. The bakery area offers many choices for your your sweet tooth. Enjoy, we did.

Simple comfort food and nice pastries. After 7pm some items are half price and there is a "day-old" section for breads.

Delicious clam chowder! No need to go to Pismo beach for it. The fish tacos and seafood salad was also very good. Lots of desserts to choose from also. We were able to sit outside with our dog and truly enjoyed our dinner here.

My wife and I were staying at the next door B&B and decided to pop in to see the treats. With such a great array of home made concoctions we were picking things out to share like kids in an ice cream parlor. Go ahead and stop in, but beware of their shelves of chocolate and baked goods!
