Splash Cafe the day we were there

Splash Cafe won the "Best Clam Chowder Award" for like 10 years in a row and probably would have many more awards but they took themselves out of the contest about 5 years ago to give other restaurants a chance.
Luckily, you can enjoy their clam chowder without going to Pismo Beach. We buy it at our local Costco in Bakersfield but if you can find it I think you will definitely enjoy it!
After lunch we took a walk out on the pier enjoying the 70 degree weather in January. The view was great and I would have to rank this side trip as one of the best ever.
