"If you walk a mile in my shoes, you'll end up in a wine bar" ~ Unknown
I have a new love and it's called "Creme Brulee Cheesecake".
My friend Alison and I have talked about trying Stax Wine Bar for quite awhile, and we finally set a date to drop everything and just go. Perfect timing since they were just voted runner up "Best Wine Bar" in the New Times 2017 Best of SLO edition. 1st place went to Luis Wine Bar and, granted I haven't been there yet, I already feel like they were robbed of the #1 title. I will visit Luis and let you know if their #1 ranking is accurate or if Stax was truly robbed. But right now, and I could be blinded by cheesecake love, I do feel it would be hard to beat Stax.
Stax is located at 1099 Embarcadero in Morro Bay CA and has a casual atmosphere with bar seating, tables, and a lounge area with couches.
The staff is nice and friendly and full of suggestions and recommendations, for both food and booze. They have an amazing selection of champagne and wine, which you can order by the glass or partake in a tasting flight for $10. Sunday is the only day you can do a tasting flight of champagne and Wednesday they offer a 2 for 1 tasting special (2 tasting flights for the price of one). Each flight consists of 5 different wines, and the tasting pours are generous.
The food they serve is all freshly prepared to order and so delicious. The prices are all reasonable and ranged from $6 - $16.
Because everything sounded so good, Alison and I ordered a bit of everything:
We, honestly, could not have been more satisfied with our food...that is until we ordered dessert ~ Creme Brulee Cheesecake ($7).
This is the perfect storm of the two best desserts ~ Creme Brulee and Cheesecake. It was soft, fluffy, rich, melt in your mouth yumminess. I am not even exaggerating, joking, lying, or making it up...BEST. DESSERT. EVER!!
A visit to their wine bar will not be a waste of your time and if all the reasons I have already mentioned aren't enough to convince you, each night they offer a different special. No matter the night you visit, there will be something to make it even more worthwhile.
So, go and visit Stax. Make them the #1 wine bar in the SLO area for 2018!! For more information, you can visit their website by clicking here.
