From trendy avocado toast and zesty chilaquiles topped with runny egg, to breakfast salads of kale, local quinoa and pickled beets, brunch has never been better (or bolder) in SLO County. Swap your average mimosa for a bright Edna Valley or Paso Robles rosé, a retro sparkling wine cocktail made with local spirits or a Bloody Mary bolstered with homegrown accouterments. Don’t forget to wash it all down with the region’s finest third wave coffees, distinctly roasted for a palate-pleasing awakening. Check out these restaurants in San Luis Obispo County for all your brunch needs:
