We really enjoyed our meal at Bliss. We sat outside at the back by the creek, with a view of the old mission. We both ordered the All Day Breakfast Tacos, which luckily were generous portions, since we were both starving by then. You get four small corn tortillas filled with rice, scrambled tofu, pinto beans, hummus, breakfast potatoes, tomatoes, cilantro, lemon juice, and salt, and a side of a really nice, spicy tomato salsa. There's no way you could pick one of these things up and eat it all out of your hand. You really need a fork too to scoop up all the filling that will inevitably fall out. I got a date carob smoothie too, which I struggled to finish, but only because I was so full by then. It was lovely: coconut milk, banana, carob, maca, dates, and vanilla.

This is a hippie-style cafe with lots of juices and smoothies and simple, fairly healthy main course options. You order at the counter and then pick a seat in the airy, open, loft-like space that the restaurant occupies (it's pretty much the main walkway of a small, indoor mall downtown).

I was going to get the curry of the day, but they amazingly don't have brown rice (which is weird for a health/yoga cafe), so instead I got the "Bhima Burger" ($10) which consisted of a homemade split pea patty in between a hamburger bun. I was not impressed with the burger; it was really bland and mushy, and the tomato and lettuce that came with it were both limp and depressing. The bun, too, was white flour (no whole wheat?) which didn't help matters. I had avocado added for $1 extra, and that really just meant three small strips of slightly brown avocado, which didn't add much by way of flavor.

The side salad that came with the burger wasn't bad, interestingly enough.

The portion size of the burger was good, but who cares if the food is bland and the ingredients are sub-par?

I'm giving Bliss three stars because the service was friendly and because San Luis Obispo otherwise doesn't have much by way of hearty vegan options.
