On Father’s Day we decided to head over to San Simeon, Cambria, and Cayucos because, well, it was Father’s Day and I love being at the coast. On this outing we wanted to try out Centrally Grown at Off the Grid, formerly known as Centrally Grown. We had heard it had closed but had since reopened so not really sure about the story behind all of that but I’m glad we stopped in.
It’s an eclectic joint that includes a market downstairs, a restaurant upstairs, an art studio of sorts, outdoor areas all around, and a stage so I’m assuming they do live music as well. I also noticed an outdoor pizza oven, which I’m jealous of. If we had room in our backyard I’d get one of those. Anyway, it’s an interesting spot for sure and we’d like to check out the other aspects of it at some point.
We were just there to check out the restaurant on this little adventure. Due to the fact that it’s upstairs and on the east side of Highway 1 you get some good height which leaves you with great views of the Pacific Ocean.
After ordering a couple of adult breakfast beverages we decided on sharing the cup of clam chowder ($5) and the fish tacos (grilled Alaskan cod, romaine/ cabbage slaw, pickled onions, tomatillo green sauce, jack and cheddar cheese, drizzled with jalapeno cream sauce $15). The clam chowder was amazing and the fish tacos had great flavor.
Check out the photos below to get an idea of the place and be sure to check them out next time you’re at the coast!
