We stopped here for lunch on our way to Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa during our trip to visit the missions of California. Meze is not only a restaurant but a shop selling domestic and imported charcutererie, cheeses from around the world, domestic and imported charcutererie and groceries. The restaurant menu offered a nice variety of gourmet food. You must ask the staff to create a custom cheese pairing. The cheese was paired with a unique sides (see attached photo) such as pickled black walnut. They will also pair your wine flight to your cheese flight. They are located on Santa Barbara Avenue in the Historic Railroad district and are open Monday-Saturday, 11am-10pm.

Our family's favorite go to spot in San Luis Obispo. This thoughtfully designed space with expansive windows and beautiful exposed brick and wood beam interior provides the perfect location for meeting with family and friends to enjoy wine and small plates, to meet colleagues for a business lunch, or to purchase gourmet cheeses, artisan food products and an international selection of well-priced wines. We also like to order a picnic lunch or appetizer tray which they will specially design for you with your wine selections in mind. The staff and owners are friendly and well-informed. Favorite dishes (remember, this restaurant sources from the local farmer's market so many items are offered seasonally) - burrata salad, brussels sprout salad, any soup they make and for my husband, anything with boquerones on it.

Cute little market where you can buy some fantastic cheeses. They let you taste the cheese and help you figure out which ones will pair well with the wines you have.

With its small, unpretentious sign among several similar ones on a building that abuts busy Santa Barbara Street, it's easy to drive right by this place and never stop. Don't! There's plenty of free and easy parking behind the building, which is, in fact, the front entrance to this stylishly refurbished and renovated old building. I'd known of this place from watching the building renovation, seeing the new businesses go in, and reading about it in the paper when it opened, but I'd never been there till recently. I was in the neighborhood and decided it was time to try it. I'm glad I did! Nice variety of wines and things to eat, warm and comfortable atmosphere, friendly service. Nothing not to like!

What great options you'll find at Meze. A Greek name, serving Spanish and Italian style offerings for the most part, while playing French music! Good variety, a bit on the pricy side, but delicious. If you have a hearty appetite, you'll need to order big. I'd like to try some of the many options I did not this trip, but probably go to Petra or Fatoush before I return to Meze. Very pleasant staff and fun interior decor and location.
