After 3 disappointing clam chowder experiences in Pismo Beach, CA...we went here on our final day of our mid week trip (Friday morning, May 30, 2014).
I wish we'd started here. Sheesh. This place had the best clam chowder in Pismo Beach, period. We got there for breakfast around 9 am, but besides the ridiculously awesome breakfast croisssant, I wanted chowder. Call me goofy, I don't care. I had three bad chowder experiences in Pismo Beach, and I couldn't figure it out. Thank God for Splash Cafe.
I know the reviews say you have to wait, well there's a reason for that. WE got there at 9 am, at 9:15 am, the line was 20 people deep. We walked right up and ordered at 9 am. Note the time to go, ok? LOL
The breakfast croisssant was, well, scrumptious. The coffee I give an A-, which is ok cuz most coffee places I give a B to. The chowder was so rich, and creamy it was insane! I had to add some crackers so I didn't overdose on each bite (which is also ok, I might add). My wife and I shared a cup. After the first bite we just looked at each other...with that "Really?" look when you find a gem.
Long story short...just do it. Go to Splash, wait if you have to, I was thrilled with this place. And their chowder was 25% cheaper than the other places we got chowder (go figure on that one, right?).
