Was recommended for the clam chowder and didn't disappoint. Even my non-seafood loving boyfriend liked it! Make sure you get the seafood topping, oyster crackers, and a quick dash of their signature carrot pepper sauce.

Wasn't very good at all luckily we were only stopping for a coffee en route . Two entrances one at front and one round the side which we used as we wouldn't have been able to get in the front one with wheelchair.

Way overrated. All the reviews said this place was a big splash. It wasn't. The clam chowder in the bread bowl a total flop

Splash Cafe is known for some of the best clam chowder on the Central Coast. They serve the White Chowder and it is worth the wait if they are busy.
