Stopped in here on our way to downtown San Luis Obispo. This cafe has three three locations,of which the original was started in Pismo Beach, 10 miles to the southwest. Decor is that of a beach hut - very upbeat and whimsical sea theme. It serves BLD and is mostly operated by college students (large "college fund" jar on the counter...the entire town runs on college help, but it's got a nice vibe of youth and sophistication without being snobby nor aloof).
We each ordered a veggie burrito - very generous serving for $3.95 each. Had lots of veggies and potatoes in it - but they were 'tater tots', so had a bit of a crunch. This was served with some spicy salsa. The coffee is strategically just past the baked goods just to get your mouth watering from viewing all of the baked goods. One can view the bakers baking away in this open concept cafe.
Wine is also served but wi-fi is not (this too, seemed to be a common occurrence (the lack of wi-fi, I mean, although there was an abundance of happy hour and penny pints being advertised quite a bit). We presumed that most cafes assumed the majority of customers had a data plan or they did not wish to encourage 'studying' at their locations for long periods of time and so did not offer complimentary wi-fi).
We came back for a snack and shared a tuna sandwich which was plenty for two ($.595). Another morning we shared oatmeal (large serving) that was $4.50 and came with nuts, raisins and brown sugar and a scrambled egg sandwich which was $3.25). Coffee was one of two sizes medium or large (at least 20oz). We (obviously) ate here a lot because it was inexpensive and on our way to downtown and the servers were lively and fun. They are known for their seafood, but we have yet to try it as it is for mostly breakfast that we are stopping in there.
