Splash Cafe in Pismo Beach is legendary — there’s a reason it’s at the top of the “must see” list for visitors from around the world to check out while they’re here. The famous Splash Cafe first opened its doors in 1989, just steps from the Pismo Beach Pier. Since 1991, Splash has been run by Joanne and Ross Currie, who turned it into a certified local landmark. No trip to Pismo Beach is complete without a stop at Splash Cafe for a taste of their award-winning Clam Chowder! Seriously, this chowder is so good that it consistently takes 1st place in the Pismo Beach Annual Clam Festival and has helped spawn a second location in San Luis Obispo, where you can also earn bonus rewards points.
