Yummy fresh backed goods along with good coffee and tea and full breakfast options make Splash Cafe a great place to start your day. I will go back again and again.

We've gone here a couple of times, mainly for convenience. The food is just okay. The clam chowder is just okay, Expect a wait. Parking is very tight and can be difficult.

I had a BLAT and my wife the shrimp and chips. And it was pretty good, the service was good and the staff was friendly. The inside was kind of loud like a fast food place. All in all okay.

We are crazy about this place. Very laid back feel. Excellent coffee and yummy bakery and so much more! Soups, burrittos, fish & chips, sandwiches, pizza, salad - you get the picture. We stayed in SLO for a couple of days just up the street...More

We always stop here when in SLO. Best clam chowder I've ever had, and a bakery that is truly amazing.

Splash is a great value! Nice variety, great prices, really tasty food. If you’re in SLO county and looking for something fast but excellent, you gotta check out Splash!

Had breakfast here on Tuesday morning and found the menu a bit limited. Tried the breakfast sandwich on Ciabatta, and while OK, seemed heavy on the Ciabatta and light on the egg/fillings. Companions had the breakfast tacos, and again double tortillas make this carb dominant....More

We stopped in to grab a quick bite before a movie. Always good, hearty food. We usually have their chowder, they are famous for it, but this trip we opted for the chili cheese fries...a keeper!
