Customers relaxing and enjoying food at Splash Cafe Pismo Beach

Splash Cafe in Pismo Beach

Splash Cafe has been a favorite destination in Pismo Beach since 1989. Our casual beach-oriented cafe has been featured in several national publications and we have received requests from Gourmet and Bon Appetit magazines for our clam chowder recipe. We serve more than 30,000 gallons of our specialty clam chowder a year in the Pismo Beach cafe! What’s so special about our Clam Chowder? We source three different types of clams to take advantage of all the flavor and texture profiles they bring!

Famous for our award winning clam chowder, we also specialize in many other fresh seafood entrees. Our customers love our fresh salmon, ahi tuna tacos, crispy hot fish & chips, and fresh calamari to name a few. We offer many non-seafood entrees as well, freshly ground burgers, hot dogs, corn dogs, deli sandwiches and salads round out our delicious menu selections. While you’re at the cafe make sure to notice all the murals on the exterior and interior of our building. Created by local artist Lin Mercer, these whimsical murals depict "clam people" having fun at the beach. Take your picture with one of the outdoor murals and submit it for our monthly photo contest! Join our Facebook page and our E-club for monthly specials.

Splash Cafe is the perfect place to really get into the personality of Pismo Beach. One of the last “Classic California” beach towns, Pismo has more than 20 miles of sand for you to enjoy. If you love to surf or just love watching the surfers, Pismo is the place to play in the ocean. Prefer walking on the beach in the early morning or at sunset? These are the favorite activities that are always available at the beach in Pismo. Don’t forget about eating Clam Chowder at the beach—there’s nothing better than eating a bread bowl of Splash Cafe Clam Chowder on a picnic table on the pier! If you can’t take the opportunity to enjoy the ambiance of the beach cafe, you are welcome to call the café to order take out or use our on-line ordering for pickup or delivery options.
