  1. Lido at the Dolphin Bay has been consistently good.

    For SLO, I like Koberl at Blue and Buona Tavloa for my upscale options. To help the wallet, I like Novo and Big Sky

    In Paso, I like Artisan and Thomas Hill OrganisIn

        +1 on Giuseppes Express, nice fresh ingredients and helpful staff.

        1. PISMO BEACH:

          1. Mo's BBQ - Philthy Phil's ribs in and Hotlix down the street towards the ocean for coffee flavored salt water taffy.

          2. Steak pieces and the potato skillet appetizers sitting at the bar at McLintocks. Good for two people.

          1. I always stop at the Steaming Bean in Shell Beach for great coffees - the Kona Mocha's my favorite. They also have breakfast items - burritos, for instance with avocado and bacon, and oatmeal loaded with fresh fruit. Friendly staff and cosy place for a simple breakfast, nothing fancy.
