Delicious, fresh and quick. These guys are spot on every time we've gone. The staff was really helpful, and very nice. The place is sunny, and bright. can't say enough good things.

This is not one of my favorite SLO food experiences. The ordering process is complicated and slow. There are only a few tables, so not a relaxing place. The smoothies are good, not great. The salads look good, but I never have tried them. I...More

We stopped by this place on the way home, got a fabulous breakfast, very reasonably priced. The staff were super friendly, and we took home frozen pints of Splash's famous clam chowder home with us!

Good food...the gals at the front counter go through the motions of being helpful....why are there no males at the front counter. I have found your male busboys to be more helpful.

Not the least bit noteworthy. While not bad, the fish tacos, shrimp, and Rueben consumed on this visit were not great either. The restroom was clean and passcode protected. Seating was difficult to maneuver. The staff were responsive if not polite.
