Our Story

Chulos Café and Cantina was founded in August 2011. With a vision to create an innovative menu that introduces our Mexican and Peruvian influences. We strategically combine food, wine, music, and art to give our customers a delightful experience.

You can enjoy a cozy dining room with warm colors, as well as a vibrant outdoor patio. The décor, filled with art and pottery, reflects our roots from Mexico and Peru.

Chulos offers an extensive breakfast and lunch menu, that features American cuisine with a Latino touch. Not to mention a wide selection of artfully created coffee beverages. We also provide a fun happy hour with a variety of traditional and fusion tacos, beer, margaritas, and house-made sangrias.

From casual, Chulos converts into a sophisticated dining experience with Nouveau-Latin dishes to go along with handcrafted cocktails. Our local musicians highlight the evenings with the sounds of flamenco, Spanish guitar, Brazilian romance, and Latin jazz.

To show the loyal clientele our appreciation, we have created a “Local’s Night”. You can enjoy half-price tapas and a half-price bottle of wine.

Chulos prides itself on being the first restaurant that introduced Peruvian cuisine in San Luis Obispo County.

Please come, relax and enjoy a unique experience with us.
