Lunch here is always pretty good. The food is well made, if a little on the delicate side. My main objection is the noise level - it's hard to sustain a conversation. The food is a little 'delicate' for my tastes, I prefer a somewhat more robust flavor profile. The prices are on the high end for Lompoc, but it's... More

I am with the few others who cannot comprehend why this establishment gets high praise. I have thought about it since coming here infrequently since 2006: Lompoc is a one horse town. And with the size and caliber (or lack of) in a small one horse town, you can easily pull the wool over folks eyes becuase the balance of... More

It is too bad you are disappointed again and find it necessary to write three derogatory reviews about our prices, the quality of our food, and our portions. You state you insist someone else pays the bill but then you comment you will get upset when you see your credit card statement. We have owned and operated Sissy's for the... More

We stopped in Lompoc on the road from Santa Barbara to San Luis Obispo and Sissy's was a gem with generous portions, crunchy fresh salads, free drinks refills and friendly staff!

I love Sissy's Cafe. Despite their strange hours, every visit is extremely worth it. The grilled vegetarian sandwich has always been one of my favorites and you can choose a soup or side salad with it. It's always delicious and the portions are perfect, meaning I always have room to have the best dessert in Lompoc. Their pies are amazing!... More

The hours are limited, but it is a family run business. So one of the family is around at all times. You should respect that. Monday through Saturday, they are open for lunch. On Saturday, they have hamburgers. Closed on Sundays (family time). Dinner are more limited. Mostly local so the crowd depends on local activities.

We had a very nice lunch at Sissy's. The warm mushroom salad was excellent, and my friends also enjoyed their meals. It wasn't cheap, but it was worth it, and also not really expensive.

Lompoc is sorely lacking in any restaurants at all, much less good ones, and I think Sissy's Uptown Cafe is one of the better ones. However when I went on a Friday evening, there were only four other diners the entire time I was there, which set a weird tone from the start. Part of the problem is that the... More

Yes, the coconut cream pie is all that. Other food good, too, but definitely go for the pies. You won't regret it!
