Located in the heart of downtown Paso Robles, offering a dynamic menu reflecting all local abundance, sourcing a vivid array of fresh ingredients to unique bold, imaginative dishes. Starting as a humble organic community supported agriculture- CSA, showcasing the Central Coast’s bounty quickly evolved into a popular destination for creatively prepared, honest food. Thomas Hill Organics believes in the significance of organic, regionally produced food, working with local purveyors of poultry, fish and grass-fed beef, lamb and exotic meats.

Thomas Hill Organics is unique and delicious, a must for your central coast dining experience. They pride themselves in bringing the customer fresh, honest food which is creatively prepared and highlights unique wines from the Central Coast. Their menu changes weekly depending on the season and what products are fresh.

Here’s what I tried:

Baby Kale Salad, cara-cara oranges, stepladder ranch Cabrillo, hazelnuts, grain mustard-champagne vinaigrette. This salad is all about the super sweet flavor of the cara-cara oranges, they are the bomb.

Fried Cauliflower, caper mayo, parsley, pickled chili. Very meaty and filling, a wonderful appetizer.

Grilled New York Strip, white bean ragu, watercress, radishes, garlic confit, and beef jus. This menu item is for the meat lover, and it doesn’t disappoint.

Grilled Sea Bass, crispy potato, snap peas, new onion, pounded basil. Kind of done in a broth like sauce, lovely in its presentation and the flavor is out of this world.


Pan Seared Brussels sprouts. Sweet and crispy, these Brussels sprouts will be a nice addition to your meal.

Polenta, browned butter, hazelnuts. I loved this side dish, its buttery with great flavor from the hazelnuts.


Brown Butter Cake with blueberry compote, sweet mascarpone, and lemon zest. The cake is moist, the lemon zest is amazing, it really is a great desert.
