Apple Farm Restaurant & Bakery

Farm Fresh Cuisine

View our Menus

The Apple Farm Restaurant & Bakery has been a favorite spot for decades for locals and visitors alike. Our local farm-to-table cuisine, fresh pastries, and pies are world-famous!

If you enjoy the simple pleasures of a farmer's market, you will savor traditional favorites like turkey pot pie or biscuits and gravy. Or treat yourself to one of our specialty entrees including fresh local meats and seafood, followed by our signature dessert, the Hot Apple Dumpling -- all in the same atmosphere of wine country charm as our Inn. Our Winery of the Month program features a local boutique winery and we will gladly waive the corkage fee for any San Luis Obispo County bottle of wine that you bring in to enjoy with your meal. Our menus are changed seasonally and reflect the freshest local ingredients. Come taste what is new in San Luis Obispo dining at the Apple Farm Restaurant and while you are here, enjoy local shopping at our Gift Shop.

Meet our Chef: Steven Smeets

Chef Steven Smeets discovered he wanted to become a chef at a young age while on Boy Scouts’ camping trips. He learned how to cook peach cobbler over an open fire and had the opportunity to fish for fresh trout and then prepare it using wild mint. He graduated from Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in San Francisco. His love for farm to table cuisine led him to the Central Coast and its variety of terroir from its farm lands and vineyards to its pristine coastline. He describes his style as how a farmer would cook if he were a chef. 
With this philosophy in mind, he sources local produce, meats, and seafood from our bountiful farmers’ markets on the Central Coast. He welcomes you to enjoy his take on local cuisine at the Apple Farm Restaurant.
