Yes it's a chain but it's new for us SLO folks. Great, pick-your-own-toppings pizzas and good selection of draft beer. Nice outdoor seating area. And it's close to the house.

Great place to load up for a wine country picnic or enjoy at their bright airy space. Salads and sandos are delish with roast lamb on the menu frequently. Rotisserie chicken is really good too, nice sized birds, enough for leftovers. Desserts are delectable and the specials always surprising and changing. Open for breakfast lunch and early dinner.

This spot is great as the whole place opens up to the street and the menu is full of crowd pleasers. Try the the Tot-chos, nachos made with tater tots! Libertine's own brews are sour, maybe an acquired taste but I really like the Casa de Newton made with pommelos from the owners backyard, it's grapefruity. The best local brews are also on tap if sour is not your thang.

Hint, the chilled pint glasses are in a cooler at the front right window. breakfast burritos are the best too!

Emily and Vince will set you up with a kayak or paddle board and you're off to frolic with dolphins, otters, whales, harbor seals and sea lions in an amazing location with calm waters and an historic lighthouse. One of my all time faves, I am a frequent flier here. Follow up with brunch at Fat Cats in the marina.
