BEST TIME OF THE YEAR TO VISIT:
“I love late winter/early spring here in Paso Robles when the grass is green, the nights and mornings are cool and the afternoons are sunny and mild. I’m a Minnesota boy, so having a little weather without it getting super cold is perfect for me. When it's green here – it's magical.”
Paso Robles is bustling with award winning and unique cuisine. Find something for everyone on your next visit.
Favorite New Hot Spot:
"I’ve loved Joe’s Place since my first visit to Paso Robles – classic Paso Robles breakfast joint. Los Robles Cafe has a pretty amazing breakfast as well as the best taco in town when lunchtime comes."
Treat Yourself to Lunch and Dinner:
"There are so many great restaurants in Paso, it’s a little like trying to pick your favorite kid. On a weekday I love having fish tacos for lunch on the patio at FINCA. When friends are in town, I typically try to get a spot at the bar for dinner and cocktails at least one night at The Hatch. I also love sitting down and getting spoiled by Julien and the crew at Les Petites Canailles. We are so fortunate to have so many great chefs here in Paso."
