Stopped in for a great lunch. Definitely will return. Chicken salad was very good. Handy to shops and easy walking.

Amazing 2 sandwiches I tried (both veggie) were amazing (comes with a nice combination of greens in balsamic dressing). The stuff was kind, and the only downside is that there is no hot drink - so they don't mind you going to the coffee shop next door, and bring it in while you wait for your dish to be prepared....

This is a quaint unassuming restaurant where you order at the counter and your meal is brought to your table. They have great salad and sandwich options. There is a small patio out front for outdoor dining.

This is a lovely cafe in the downtown SLO area. They have delicious vegetarian sandwiches and other food items as well. The outdoor patio is a great place to sit down for lunch and watch the people pass by. I've eaten here a few times and always make a point of stopping here for lunch while in town.

We stopped in SLO on our way North and found this excellent place for lunch. Sandwiches were well filled and very tasty, with excellent focaccia bread. Service was quick and friendly.

Urbane's sandwiches and salads are delicious! They make their bread freesh daily! They've catered lunches for our business and everyone loved the food! Parking is a challenge, but worth it!

I wish they had more locations. We are at one in Oxnard and we're thrilled to find one in SLO. the best salads and sandwiches you can find! OMG! Try the veggie sandwich with artichokes, sun dried tomatoes and aioli sauce! I can't wait to have another, but I'll have to plan a day trip from where I live to... More
