I loved everything about my meal here! We went for brunch and wanted to get everything on the menu when we saw it :) It seems like they focus on fresh, local and organic sourcing which is great. For beverages the have wine, cocktails, espresso, lattes and even tea lattes. I had a chai tea latte and it was really... More

I love Scarlett Begonia! I have been here twice for breakfast and plan to visit the next time I'm in Santa Barbara. Both times I have been the food has been fantastic and the service has been great as well. It's a little hidden gem in the middle of downtown Santa Barbara off State Street. It's a little bit hard...

I loved sharing breakfast with my sister and husband on a recent visit. The garden setting was perfect for a casual morning meal. I can share that the eggs and mini potatoes were great and even better was the signature maple bacon cheese biscuit. Can't wait to return.

I stumbled on this place while walking from the post office and I absolutely love everything about it. The food was delicious, the location fantastic and nice staff. Got a couple of samples of food along with the meal; yoghurt and granola (which made me want to come back for breakfast) and a delicious caramel treat. Their kale Caesar salad... More

Went for breakfast. The concept of the food 4 stars. Quality control 2 stars. Poached egg and hard boiled egg are not the same. I had the mushroom gravy with biscuit. Hard pressed to find any mushroom flavor. It needed a bump up in taste. Biscuit and eggs perfect. The potato scramble also needed a bump up in flavor. Maybe... More

Wow! Quaint patio and indoor restaurant/cafe. Service was great, very attentive with good food suggestions. They have a full liquor license and some interesting drinks on the menu. Didn't try them, but they looked good. My breakfast was phenomenal! I had the shrimp and grits with a poached egg. Not something I would usually order, I am a bacon and... More

It was hard for us to believe that anyone could find this place but many tables were full when we finally stumbled upon it. We were pleased by the quaint and unique menu but unfortunately, it took a v e r y l o n g time for someone to acknowledge our table. Even once they finally did, it still... More

Just looking on line for a place for breakfast/brunch on Sunday of our visit. Found the Scarlett Begonia but it did not take reservations until 1 p.m. After a mass at the Mission we were ready to eat. We requested outdoors and were not disappointed except that tables were very close to each other. With that said, the wait staff... More

Traveling solo and I found this spot across from the SB Public Market. I did not have reservations, but was able to get in on a Saturday morning. Well prepared breakfast. Would like to come back and try lunch or dinner. Amuse bouche was appreciated
