And that’s not a bad thing, given the number of local “institutions” around here that serve institutional food. Not bad at all, but not the shining paragon of cuisine that some of the other reviewers say it is. A decent option for a meal before/after...More

Go for breakfast and have the burrito or a variety of pastries. All great! The cheese omelette made with goat cheese is incredible! Nice people and terrific food!

Great food, Great service, always busy but worth the wait. Moved to Oregon coast and sadly can not find clam chowder that is even close to being as good as Splash. A must eat and enjoy restraint.
