Step into the Shell Cafe at Pismo Beach and you will be treated to a wonderful time at one of the oldest continually running restaurants on the Central Coast.

Their history is rich with great tradition. Price Street is the old El Camino Real, the main road between northern and southern California. Shell Cafe was the midway point between Santa Barbara and Hearst Castle in San Simeon.

Hollywood celebrity friends of William Randolph Hearst found the restaurant a perfect place to relax with a great view of the Pacific Ocean and have a bite to eat on their way up the coast to visit the Castle.

Dogs on San Luis Obispo Beach
Fun at the beach. (CC) SLO dogs in the fast lane.
From Ragged Point in the north to Pismo Beach in the south, the San Luis Obispo County coast is a dog-friendly wonderland loaded with things to do and places to stay with your pup. Along the 70 miles of Highway 1 that hug it, you’ll encounter everything from secluded tide pools and shimmering coves to classic SoCal beaches packed shoulder to shoulder with surfer dudes, bikini babes and dogs with jaunty bandanas around their necks. more »

So long as the weather is good, which is 90 percent of the time on the Central Coast, visitors with dogs will have no problem finding a place to chow down at an outdoor table where Daisy can relax, too.  In downtown SLO, head for Luna Red, across from the mission, which offers fine dining with outdoor seating for dogs and their families. The menu changes seasonally based on supply from local farmers and fishermen. Outdoor dining is complemented with views of the mission, and of course your happy pooch at your feet. more »
