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

I took my sister there for breakfast as she was visiting from out of town. We ordered the waffles and they came with strawberry syrup, no fresh strawberries. She was disappointed. A few young people were there and one dropped his drink. The owner made disparaging comments about the young people and complained loudly about having to clean the floor.... More

We've eaten breakfast at Hula Hut on two different vacations in Avila and enjoyed it both times. The menu isn't very big, but they stick to things they're good at. I had a breakfast burrito and it was really great -- the perfect balance of ingredients and lots of fresh and delicious red and yellow bell peppers. My daughter had... More
