Paso Market Walk

Paso Market Walk is located in the heart of one of California’s most famed wine regions, Paso Robles. This is a must-visit for foodies, locals, and visitors of San Luis Obispo County! The market walk is 16,000 sq. ft and will be a hub for shopping, dining, and gathering! At this time they are providing spacious outdoor seating and curbside pickup.

We got to visit them last fall for a sneak peak and one of the most interesting additions to the property includes The Lofts which feature two studio, two one-bedroom, and two two-bedroom short-stay suites. Already a central location to the hundreds of wineries, imagine being only a few steps away from some of the best restaurants in downtown Paso.

Since then, owners Joseph and Isabel Gerardis have searched the world over before selecting the best organic beans available from Africa, Indonesia, Central America and South America. Their first store opened in Atascadero and we are thrilled for their second location at the Paso Market Walk. They roast them with care to bring out the distinctly different flavors and qualities particular to each coffee region. Coffee beans, coffee by the cup, tea and espresso will be on the menu.

Using traditional Italian methods, Lekai creates flavors that rotate throughout the seasons, based on what is fresh and available at the time.

Fresh off a victory for “Best Drink” at the SLO Craft Beer Fest 2020, SLO Cider is ready to spread the love in both San Luis Obispo and Paso Robles!  The company consists of Nate Adamski (Operations), Jeremy Fleming (Cider Maker) and Pete Ayer (Marketing), a unique blend of 3 different backgrounds to create a promising and harmonious blend of hard cider and positive vibes.
