About Us

It all started with a health food store in Cambria...

The desire was simple – to make healthy and delicious food accessible to our community.  Owners, Robin Covey and Shanny Covey, dedicated themselves to giving customers a great experience and true hospitality.  After a few tireless years of building a business with their own two hands, raising a family, and growing a loyal following of customers, Robin and Shanny had an opportunity to open Robin’s Restaurant in 1985 in Cambria, CA, which has since become an iconic North Coast destination.  In 2003, they expanded into San Luis Obispo and opened Novo opened,  followed soon after with  Luna Red, Café Fiero and finally in 2016, Mint + Craft.

Mint+Craft is Robin and Shanny’s interpretation of a fast, casual cafe and mercantile.  It is a celebration of all things handcrafted!

Open 7 days a week for barista drinks & artisanal grab + go cuisine, now guests can enjoy innovative flavors and fresh food without having to spend a lot of time or money.

Enjoy on our open-air patio or take your meal to go. Mint+Craft is a central SLO spot to taste, refuel and discover. Want to host your next event with us?
