SLO 2015. (where we ate)

in San Luis Obispo:

  • Pizza Solo: We shared the Valentina Pizza, which had sriracha, ranch, bell peppers, mozzarella, onions, and carnitas.  We really liked it, and if they add it to their regular menu (it was a special) I'd highly recommend it.  It definitely has heat, but it's not overwhelming.  It leaves your mouth very warm afterwards, so have lots of water on hand to temper that.
  • Linnaea's Cafe: We stopped here because it was the easiest for us to stop right at the busy lunch hour with a baby in a stroller that wouldn't fit nicely anywhere else.  We had breakfast burritos, which weren't anything special, but they were good and easy in that moment.  I'm sure there's more to this place for coffee drinkers, so I wouldn't rule it out for those folks.
  • Cowboy Cookies: Holy. Giant. Cookie. Ice. Cream. Sandwich.  It was huge, even for two (and a half) people.  It was certainly delicious, but we couldn't eat it as a sandwich, we had to dismantle it first.
  • F. McLintocks: A favorite, we ordered the Thursday night Farmer's Market special.  Two different kinds of ribs, a meat kebab, two sides, and a piece of bread.  We eat it all and feel so full afterwards, but it is so worth it.
  • Cattaneo Bros: A Hood family necessity, this is the only beef jerky we will ever eat.  We recommend the beef jerky end piece package and the beef stick end package!
  • SLO Donut Co: We have been on a donut adventure as of late, and we've been trying out different places to compare to our current favorite donut shop, Lamar's.  This place's glazed donut and old fashioned didn't measure up to good old Lamar's, but we really liked their Maple-Bacon Bar.  The bacon was perfect, and although I felt there could have been a stronger maple flavor, we went back to pick up some more for our trip back to Phoenix.

in Morro Bay:

  • Hofbrau: Their signature dish is the French Dip Sandwich, and it is perfect.  The Calamari Steak Sandwich is also delicious.  (This place is also where we gave Theo his first taste of lemon.  His sour face is amazing.)
  • the Great American Fish Company: Get their Fish Tacos, and get them Cajun-style!

in Cayucos:

  • Brown Butter Cookie Company: This was the biggest disappointment of the trip for me.  We got almost one of everything: The Original, Cocoa, Espresso, Peanut Butter, Oatmeal Raisin, Snickerdoodle, and Lemon.  If I had to eat another cookie it would be the Original, but I'd never choose to eat one of their cookies again.  The flavors were just too dull for me.

in Cambria:

  • French Corner Bakery: I ordered a Hot Chocolate, just because it had been months since I last felt chilly, and it will probably be a few more months before I feel chilly enough for one again. Jon bought a little flan which he enjoyed.  They had lots of cute little desserts and tarts in their display, and the space, though small, was very warm and welcoming.
