San Luis Obispo train station - where to get a quick bite to eat
The South Coast Railway Museum has a number of day-trips on a historic lounge car this summer leaving from Santa Barbara.
We picked the one on June 30 and wonder what restaurants are close enough to walk to from the SLO train station where there will be a "brief stop" before it returns back to Santa Barbara.
They also give passengers the option of getting off in Grovers Beach for a longer lunch, but then you miss the full trip into SLO before the train goes back to Grovers Beach for the return pick up.
Snacks and soft drinks are provided in the lounge car and one can pack their own lunch. But it would be more fun to see what we can find in SLO during this "brief stop". ......more than a bag of chips? Thanks.
Within about 100 yards walk are the following:
Cafe Roma, nice Italian but not open for lunch. Lotus Thai is a friendly Thai spot and next door is Elephant Thai. My suggestion is a nice lunch at Sally Loo's. Fresh, local ingredients, Get it to go and dine on the train or at the station
here's a posting I did about a year ago:
Del Monte Cafe is just across the parking lot to the west about 2 minutes--and the food is very reliable, something I've not found at Sally Loos. That place can be a little hippie-trippy in my experience.
