Kitchenette The Most Charming & Tasty Restaurant in Templeton California
Where is Kitchenette and why do you have to visit: Kitchenette is located in Templeton California, approximately 15 minutes from Paso Robles. During a recent visit to Paso Robles (one of my favorite Wine Country destinations in California, read my Top 10 Paso Robles Wineries here) I experienced Kitchenette for breakfast. I learned about Kitchenette after experiencing the incredible Artisan Restaurant in Paso Robles also owned and operated by brothers Chris Kobayashi, Executive Chef/Owner & Michael Kobayashi. After experiencing Artisan which was incredible I was curious to try their more causal Templeton Restaurant which did not disappoint! 105 S Main St #1, Templeton, CA 93465.
The charming bar seating overlooking the gorgeous coffee maker
What to expect: Aside from Kitchenette being one of the most charming, picturesque restaurants their food is also just as impressive. The inventive twist on Asian Cuisine paired with traditional California dishes makes for an incredible visit. This will be a destination I visit every time I’m back to Paso Robles. Although it’s casual and unassuming, the food is extremely impressive with great flavor, high quality ingredients in a gorgeous cheerful setting you will never want to leave (unless of course you’re going wine tasting!).

The irresistible Pastry display
The incredible spread I experienced. It was hard to decide what to try so I ordered the Fried Brown Rice Hash with kimchi and feta cheese, the chilaquiles with house soy chorizo, feta, black beans, and avocado and my friend Rob tried the beer braised corn beef hash and the Croissant French Toast with cirtus marmalade, vanilla, cream cheesecake toast (the gorgeous dish in the middle with the oranges). We ordered the perfect mix of sweet, savory and traditional dishes like eggs. Clearly whatever you order you can’t go wrong here!

The French Toast you must try! I had a bite of it and it is rich, flavorful yet light with the fruit on top.
What to wear: Templeton is what I’d describe as truly a small town in America. It may have two full blocks (possibly one) so anything goes here. I would suggest jeans, a tee shirt and a jacket or a casual dress if it’s warm out. You could easily walk in after the gym and feel totally comfortable. It’s very unpretentious with a cozy inviting atmosphere you will love and delicious well priced food. Slam dunk if you ask me. Shop some of my favorite brunch wear below!
