This place is right across the street from the beach with great ocean views. We stopped here for a quick bite to eat. The chicken wrap with potato salad was delicious. After lunch we treated ourselves to a coffee drink which was yummy. I had the blended Mocha and my husband had an iced Latte. The coffee they use was... More

We wandered into this establishment to view souvenirs and browse. My wife really was craving ice cream so we indulged. We had the pistachio flavor. It was creamy and delicious. They had some really good flavors there and believe any of their choices would not disappoint. Be prepared to shell out the bucks. One scoop was $4.50 that does not... More

Stopped into this lovely beach side town on the road to Santa Barbara. Enjoyed a coffee while taking in the sites of this nice beach and its four piers. As a nice touch, we were welcomed to California by the owner, after he asked where we were from. Didn't try the food as I over did it at breakfast, but... More

Breakfast burritos were pretty good, but expensive. Fun to browse in store while waiting for your food.

What can you say about good ice cream? Yum. My only complaint was the small selection to choose from.

I have visited the Hula Hut numerous times with various bike groups. The staff is always welcoming and offers to fill our water bottles. Sometimes our bike groups take over the front patio but we are usually there at 10:30 before the lunch crowd arrives. I have also visited Hula Hut on solo bike rides for early breakfast. I love...

Hula Hut Stopped in for ice cream after a great meal on the pier. It was 8:30 on a Wednesday night. They said they close at 9pm, but it seemed like they wanted to get out of there early. Floors were being mopped and chairs stacked. I had the Caramel Explosion in a sugar cone, my husband had their award... More
