Perched on a hill in the piney town of Cambria, this northern San Luis Obispo County gem plays host to a bakery, coffee bar, deli, natural gourmet foods market with locally sourced produce and goods, a bar and restaurant, as well as a general store where local artists sell their ware—all set amidst whimsical gardens, wooden sculptures, living earth structures, and a coastal view.
I recently paid a visit to Centrally Grown, where I explored their curious grounds, indulged in a house-made boysenberry poptart topped with violets from their edible flower garden, and found myself not wanting to leave.
As the ocean air permeated the surrounding Santa Lucia Mountains, the sun peeked out, the fog rolled in and out, and I leisurely strolled around, snapping dozens of pictures. Following is a video compilation of my exploration at Centrally Grown, which I hope inspires you to take a drive up SLO County's beautiful coastline and stop off for a little rest and relaxation.
I look forward to returning to this seaside mecca to soak up more Central Coast ambience...
...and you can be sure I'll post more of my adventures.
