Stopped by here for lunch with my mother as we were in the area and hungry for some light healthy food. We decided to split the Turkey Cranberry Brie Sandwich. It was enough to fill both of us up as we weren't too hungry. The house side salad was a good sized portion and tasted above average. The sandwich was... More

For a lunch this was perfect. They had a nice covered patio so we were able to enjoy the warm weather without being directly in the sun.

Stopped for dinner at this downtown restaurant. We wanted a lighter dinner and this was a great place. They make fresh focaccia for each sandwich (like a thick flatbread). Very tasty. The fresh bread makes the sandwich. They also include a nice side salad. It might be called a "healthy choice" restaurant, but my meat and potatoes husband enjoyed it... More

Amazing 2 sandwiches I tried (both veggie) were amazing (comes with a nice combination of greens in balsamic dressing). The stuff was kind, and the only downside is that there is no hot drink - so they don't mind you going to the coffee shop next door, and bring it in while you wait for your dish to be prepared....

This is a quaint unassuming restaurant where you order at the counter and your meal is brought to your table. They have great salad and sandwich options. There is a small patio out front for outdoor dining.

This is a lovely cafe in the downtown SLO area. They have delicious vegetarian sandwiches and other food items as well. The outdoor patio is a great place to sit down for lunch and watch the people pass by. I've eaten here a few times and always make a point of stopping here for lunch while in town.

We stopped in SLO on our way North and found this excellent place for lunch. Sandwiches were well filled and very tasty, with excellent focaccia bread. Service was quick and friendly.
