My husband and I are always looking for a new restaurant in "our neck of the woods" and were delighted to hear about Southern Station's recent opening in Santa Margarita - north of San Luis Obispo. We were even more delighted to learn that Southern Station is the "sister" restaurant to the Del Monte Café in SLO. (The Del Monte is an old-time favorite of most of us natives of SLO). Turns out the daughter of the owner of the Del Monte is running Southern Station. Anyway, off we went for a terrific breakfast experience. As the place is new - a month or so old - we expected some of the usual "quirks" a new place might be experiencing. Not the case ! Service was quick and served by a very knowledgeable young lady. The place is new and clean - a little sparse perhaps, but we understand that there will be live music on the outdoor stage and they already have a great patio area. We loved the definite vibe of Southern cooking - hush puppies, Cajun spices and all on the menu and the fact that there are lots of choices. Our breakfast was terrific! My husband's ham steak was one of the biggest I've ever seen - took 1/2 home for a ham sandwich and my egg/bean/pork skillet was Fabulous! We'll be BACK! ...and looking forward to live music in a new venue.
