Great Sushi in Pismo Beach

As a busy family we frequently have to rely on take-out when the day becomes a little bit too hectic. Luckily, we have Yanagi just a few blocks from home and office. They are awesome when it comes to speedy and fresh take-out — everything from the true, quality Sashimi that my husband and son…

Veterinary Clinic – Pismo Beach

Growing up in a small town, it’s difficult to break the cycle of “going to the same vet your parents always did” etc., etc. However lately I was beginning to feel that no matter what was needed, a trip to my previous vet meant a $300 bill every time. It was beginning to be a…

Home Decor and Nursery – Grover Beach

Ron’s Nursery is aptly named after it’s owner, Ron Carlock. This man is the human definition of why I love living and owning a small business here on the Central Coast. You will notice that many of my Yelps revolve around Customer Service. I believe that in many cases, great customer service is under-valued and…

Great Food Arroyo Grande – Alphy’s Broiler

Two words: Oriental Salad. It’s heavenly. But just in case you think I am giving five stars based on a salad, don’t worry! They have a special Prime Rib Sandwich that makes my husband’s mouth water just mentioning it! And let’s not forget their Salmon Salad. Or how about their extra fresh, extra yummy Salmon…

Elegant & Professional Photography in San Luis Obispo

Our history with Colleen goes back to our engagement photos! Interviewing photographers, there was an immediate connection. Almost ten years later, we have asked her to document our engagement, wedding, parent’s 40th wedding anniversary, business photos for both my husband, myself, and my mom, and most recently family photos of my entire local family that…

Fin’s Seafood Resaurant in Pismo Beach

In Grover Beach, what folks must keep in mind when heading to Fin’s is that it’s a family restaurant with a seafood focus — It’s on the sand, folks, at the entrance to the beach at the bottom of Grand Ave. So, if you don’t like seafood or families, I would choose another restaurant! That…

Arroyo Grande Handyman

Wayne Reinig is the consummate professional. As we are, he is in the business of helping people, and he does it very well. We recommend him for our clients — which is always important as it reflects on us. I can say that I have total confidence that Wayne is an excellent, polished and skilled…

Rosa’s Italian Restaurant

Rosa’s is one of our “go-to” restaurants. For date night, for business lunches, for their fun and fabulous annual (JUNE) fundraiser, the “Martini Shakedown” — we are at Rosa’s once a month on average. They have always had a fantastic menu, constantly updated by chef Doug MacMillan. My favorites are the Arugula Salad, Pasta California,…
