My husband and I ate lunch here in the late afternoon on a weekday. We found it on TripAdvisior app while driving down the coast from Cambria back to Burbank. This place is a gem. The food was great. I had the El Macho burger and the husband had the chicken and brie sandwich. Both were spectacular. Great wine list,... More

Jane sits quietly amongst the shops, restaurants and cinemas on the forever busy State St. Don't blink or you'll miss Jane. Her inside is anything but enchanting, warm and homey. There is a big farm wood table occupying the center of the restaurant, otherwise the small space is littered with 2's or 4's tables and also a second balcony dining... More

My husband, parents and I visited Jane's in September 2015 and had one of the best meals of our three week California trip. The food was excellent, the service friendly and efficient and the restaurant itself was lovely. We would all thoroughly recommend a visit.

They open at 11:30am so be there to get a table before the locals fill them up. The staff is friendly and efficient. You can tell them if you don’t like something you ordered and they will take care of you with a smile, although I have never sent anything back. There is a daily lunch special which can be... More

We came here for a late lunch after a morning of hiking and were very pleased! The calamari was top notch and the salads were refreshing and satisfying. The place is super quaint and we really enjoyed the atmosphere. Would definitely return!

Googled somewhere close to our accom on State St and this rated well. We had to book and wait about 20 mins for table: it's busy for good reason. Looked very much like the locals know and love "Jane". Prices were fair for what they offer: approx USD$30-35 for 2 delicious NZ lamb chop special (and I married a New... More

We have been to the Montecito Cafe and Jane many times. The last meal at Jane was a real disappointment. The spinach soup was watery and flavorless. The petrole soul was fresh but bland, topped with a rich cream sauce which added nothing to the dish. My friend has two thin, small lamb chops for $30 which were good. When... More
