SLO Life Magazine

When we moved to San Luis Obispo 4 years ago, SLO Life Magazine was a big part of how we learned about the amazing community here in San Luis Obispo.  Now, almost 4 years later, it’s such an honor to have been featured on the cover.  Here’s the story for those that may have missed the issue!

AAA Westways Magazine Feature

A few months ago, we had the great honor of being approached by the iconic AAA Westways brand (yes, the same people we’ve all called for a tow at some point or another!). They let us know they wanted to feature Scout in their California travel magazine which has over 9.8 Million readers.  We were obviously very excited to get our copy of the magazine yesterday, and love that they consider Scout to be “The Picture-Perfect Pitstop” in San Luis Obispo.

Thanks so much, AAA Westways!

We just opened up our second location at 880 Foothill Blvd on August 2!  Lots of stories to come about all of the details and our process, but here are a few opening photos, along with some of the video clips we took as we built it out.

Our hours at this location are: 6:30a – 7:30p.

We are excited to be here and are looking forward to the life this new location takes on as it grows.  Thanks so much for all of your ongoing support!

NY Times

Thanks to the New York Times for including us as the “stylish” coffee & pastry stop in their 36 hours on the Central Coast article!  We are proud and honored to be a part of such an amazing small business community here in San Luis Obispo, and just think there’s no better place to live and work.  And if you find yourself visiting the Central Coast this summer, we’d love to take care of you while you’re here!

Here’s a link to the article.

Limekiln

We used to take as many backpacking trips into the High Sierra as we could manage each year from late spring to fall.  But with Scout and HoneyCo both still relatively new, along with our 2 little girls (Lilly 3, Everly 4 months), we decided it might be a good idea to get out and do some car camping over the next few years.

Last weekend, we had a chance to get a quick trip in, so we went up to Limekiln on the Big Sur coast for 2 nights in the redwoods.  We met up with some of our good friends from Verve, and Sara’s long lost high school friends from Ohio!  We all drank tons of coffee, made lots of great food on the camp stoves, had a hungry skunk visit camp while we were all hanging out by the fire, and somehow even made it up the trail to see the waterfalls with the little ones. A successful trip all around, and just really amazing to live in SLO where we can get to a place like Big Sur in under 2 hours on one of the most scenic drives you can make.

Scout Ride

Last week we put together a Saturday morning mountain bike ride, and it really turned into a highlight of the week. We announced the ride on our Facebook page on Friday, and we had 11 riders turn out for coffee around 7:45am, followed by a ride up on Cuesta Grade.  We left Scout around 8:15 and climbed Stage Coach to Botanicals/Morning Glory before heading back down to town for total of about 20 miles and 2,500′ of climbing.

We are hoping to have a monthly standing ride back on the calendar in the near future.  Stay tuned here and on our Facebook and Instagram for details.
