Meandering through the streets of SLO CAL, it is easy to see that this region has fallen head over heels in love with a good old cup of Joe.
From down-home java shacks to high-end, third-wave roasteries―each of which takes meticulous care to perfectly craft your cup, every time—start your morning (or afternoon, or evening) off right with pour-over, cold brew or espresso drinks from any of the dozens of coffee shops across San Luis Obispo County. Most offer house-baked goodies, like croissants, morning buns, muffins and scones, and many can even take care of lunch for you, too. Not into coffee? Try a mug of tea, sourced by area tea importers, or for a healthy kick, order a tall glass of locally brewed kombucha. Whether you’re looking for a cozy spot to read a book or meeting up with a friend, these coffee shops will fit the bill. Now, all that’s left to decide is...do you want room for cream?
