Found this little gem from my smart phone - Kudos to Siri on this one. We had stopped in Carpinteria for gas and decided to fuel our bodies too. Not know the area we didn't want to drive around aimlessly so asked for directions to a nearby restaurant. Although from the menu with the daily specials on a big blackboard... More

Best breakfast in town. Service is very pleasant. Be sure to try corn beef hash. Don't miss it when you are on town. Yum yum

We stopped here for lunch and enjoyed our meal very much. The workers are friendly and our burgers/fries/salads were very good. Portions are generous. It's not a cheap place to eat, but it is a good value considering the quality. They close up early (2pm) so plan to come for breakfast or lunch.

This small, plain cafe in downtown Carpinteria offers fresh takes on classics such as eggs Benedict: theirs start with homemade biscuits, then comes a thin layer of sausage, eggs over easy, and sausage gravy to smother. Absolutely delicious. Don't miss their hash browns -- tender and crunchy with just the right seasoning and not too much fat. Pancakes are pancakes...... More

Dropped in by chance to get brunch on road trip with 3 generations. We all sat along the counter and had great food and very good and attentive service. Everyone delighted from age 4 to the over 70s. We have some super photos of us along the line. A quick pit stop turned into a happy memory

This place was empty when I walked in so I was not sure if it is because this place is unpopular and no one wants to eat there? But the guy working that day was so polite and friendly and had an amazing smile on his face so me and my sister decided to stay and eat. It was the... More

Worker Bee is a place where locals congregate and get a tasty bite for breakfast and lunch. It's a very old school lunch counter type place with high quality comfort food. Creative and delicious, there's something on the menu for everyone. I'm a vegetarian and have become a regular. Great breakfast options, which I believe are offered all day, along... More

First time here & will return. The best fresh orange juice momosas! Breakfast was great & lunch sandwiches! Service was great & friendly. Outside seating in the back. Price very resonable. Its a no frills café, but fits well in the area. Good for visitors as well as locals.
