On a Budget? Dine Heartily in Pismo Beach
Traveling on a budget doesn’t mean you’re limited to fast food joints and PB&J sandwiches for the duration of your vacation. Pismo Beach is packed with amazing restaurants offering great food at good prices that won’t break your budget.
The Most Important Meal of the Day
Tight on funds shouldn’t have to mean skipping breakfast. Your stomach will be growling if you don’t satisfy that hunger, and it’s just not right to tackle the best of Pismo Beach with an empty belly. If you have a sweet tooth, Old West Cinnamon Rolls serves up mouthwatering morning carbs to give you the comfort and kick you need. Pick the cinnamon roll that satisfies your tastes – original, cream cheese frosted, or slathered in nuts or raisins. Pair it with a soothing espresso, or add on a muffin, fruit wheel, or other baked good.
Heading out in the a.m. with your four-legged friend? Hit up the pet-friendly Honeymoon Café. Fill up on bagels, breakfast burritos, eggs any way you like ‘em, and don’t forget to add a side of yogurt, toast, or oatmeal for the heartiest of breakfasts at the best of prices.
Sit Down for Lunch in Pismo Beach
Craving a taco or enchilada for your midday meal? Find healthy, fresh, affordable Mexican food at Pismo Beach staple Tio Alberto’s. Using locally grown produce and offering salsa made from scratch, authentic Mexican food doesn’t get any better than this unless you’re south of the border. Choose one of many flavorful burrito combos, or make a meal of zesty and plentiful sides. Finish off your spicy meal with an artfully blended fruit smoothie.
If you’re looking for a get-up-and-go lunch, DePalo & Sons Deli is a family owned gourmet grocer that makes fresh mozzarella daily, along with many other Italian specialties, ideal for a picnic on the beach. Grab a sandwich, gourmet salad, or grilled Panini– big enough to share – from the joint voted Best Delicatessen in the Tri Counties.
