Wonderful way to start the day!!!

Visited here this morning and had an awesome breakfast. They have some of the best coffee I have ever had. Every one was really nice and I loved watching the girl frosting the cakes. I hope she did not mind me watching her and asking a bunch of questions. The cupcakes are amazing and they have the... read more

Really good breakfast (all day) and lunch meals - health (ish) and at least mostly farm fresh, organic (I think). And when you are done, you can have a fresh cupcake. I actually like the mini's best. Good coffee drinks too.

Now that 'Cajun Kitchen' is closed, there's one less option for breakfast on Linden Avenue this summer - so venture right around the corner on Carpinteria Avenue to this great cafe/coffeehouse/cupcakery - with it's funky 'industrialist' vibe & amazingly good food! The choices are unique, with a lots of fresh, organic ingredients - and the portions are not huge -... More

I stop here frequently for a pot of hot tea, iced tea, brunch, or lunch. There is a pleasant patio out back, parking in the rear, free wifi, and always nice service. Veggie options include my favorite, their soyrizo burrito. Lots of sandwich and salad options to choose from, and then there are their beautiful cupcakes...

I love this place, always our first stop on the way to Santa Barbara. They have excellent salads, soups, sandwiches and... incredible cupcakes! Many ingredients are organic, all mostly local and fresh. Highly recommend this place!

There is an outside sitting area, even tho it is right on the sidewalk, and there is a small place in the back.. it is friendly and noise from the street is minimal. Their breakfast menu is varied and offers some... More

The place is roomy with plenty of outlets and large tables to work on your computer. The staff is friendly and efficient, and it is nice to see the... More

We were just passing through and needed some place to stop for lunch. The online menu featured gluten-free options, so we decided to stop. We both got the chicken sandwiches on gluten-free bread with a house side salad. The food was very good and tasted fresh and homemade. We each also got a gluten-free red velvet cupcake. It was the...

Stay for the food So much more than just cupcakes. It's one of my favorite lunch spots in carp. I love their tomato basil soup, which you can get with toast or tortilla chips for under $5. Or, get a cup and half of one of their many delicious sandwiches. And oh, the salads. Honestly one of their best options.... More
