Places That I've Tried at SLO Public Market
Located on the first floor of SLO Public Market's main building, this Thai restaurant has a nice condensed menu. I've tried literally every entree. They do have new stuff on the menu. The Thai food here is great in quality and taste every once in awhile. I recommend the pad see ew, pad thai and thai fried rice.
You order at the counter, pay and then they will text you when your order is ready. While we'd wait for our food, we'd go to the kid's play area upstairs so the kids can play while we wait. This is all very convenient for us. If you're on a mobile phone, scroll down to see the picture of the kids play area at SLO Public Market.
Bing's Bao Buns
Located on the first floor of SLO Public Market, Bing's Bao Buns was the first place that got my attention when I visited SLO Public Market for the first time. However, by the time I got to their counter, their buns were all sold out! After a year, I've finally been able to get there early enough to order a set of 3 Blue Crabby baos and I was so happy! It is pricey but it was well worth it! They always have a vegetarian option as well.
Sequel Boba Pop Up
Sequel sells boba and at one time, they had a pop up at SLO Public Market where Bings Bao Buns usually is. I was able to enjoy a very nice boba drink on the house because they were having a Mother's Day special. I look forward to visiting the SLO Public Market when they have special events like this.
Kraken Coffee Co
There is a a neatly themed coffee shop at SLO Public Market called Kraken Coffee Co that's named after an octopus-like creature. They have free wi-fi available for use while you're a customer with several tables for easy plug in. If you are drinking a latte there and plan on hanging out for awhile, ask them to put it in a mug so you can enjoy their latte art. Otherwise, they'll just put it in a white to-go cup. See my video reel of IG of my visit here at Kraken.
Kids Play Area at SLO Public Market
Upstairs, in the main building of SLO Public Market is a free kids play area. These are toys that you can use while you're dining there. There's a lot of tables and chairs upstairs for you to enjoy your food while you're with little ones, which always makes ita better dining experience for me as a mom with two kids.
