Louisa’s Place: The breakfast champion
Longevity is typically a rare and hard-won battle in the restau- rant industry, and it’s no different in San Luis Obispo. One of those precious few is Louisa’s Place, a classic fifties-style diner and a San Luis Obispo favorite for more 50 years. Originally opened as the “Best Ever Grill” in 1958 the diner was purchased in 1976 by a woman named Louise
Webb, “Louisa’s” became an instant success. Purchased by the Sweeney fam- ily in 1991, Louisa’s has remained a local icon for good, solid breakfast, lunch and connecting with friends. Aubrey Pyle, the newest owner, recently took over Louisa’s from Scott Sweeney.
Breakfast is a specialty
There are 26 omelets on the menu along with the “build- your-own” option. There are also pancakes, local sausage, bacon, waffles (they are famous for their
bacon Belgian waffles, with gener- ous chunks of actual, house-cooked bacon folded into the batter), oat- meal, breakfast burritos and huevos rancheros. The menu goes on and on including a full offering of lunch items like burgers and salads.
No fads, just good, home- style cooking
Judging by the line out the door and the packed seating on any given weekend, Louisa’s is clearly the place for most people. Dine-in or call ahead for take- out. Private parties and catering are available, includ- ing for breakfast! Breakfast and lunch served daily from
6 a.m.-3 p.m. Start
your day—or afternoon—out right.
Louisa’s Place is located at 964 Higuera St. in downtown SLO, call (805) 541-0227or visitlouisasplace. com for more information.
