Looking for a 'locals place' to take a friend who's visiting her sis at in an asisted living facility in SB. I'd like to take her to a casual, friendly, not-too-loud place with well-prepared food and a sunny vibe. We'll be returning to SLO later in the day. Extra points for the "sunny and cute" factor.
Do you have a favorite, no-fail place with comforting (but not necessarily "comfort") food? How well does Tupelo fit this bill? We're not particulary fussy about what type of food, though we both appreciate interesting flavors.
Many thanks, hounds!
