We went there for lunch for my husband's birthday. When we arrived we gave them our phone number to text us when our table was ready. We took a short walk around the block then came back to wait outside the restaurant. Finally my husband went up to check where we were in the line up, only to have them... More

Locally sourced food. Not a limitless brunch menu but enough variety to satisfy most palates. Portions are a good size and pricing is fair. There is also a well thought out kid menu for anyone under 12. We shared the Eggs Benedict which was superb.

We had a late lunch at Scarlett Begonia and enjoyed ourselves. The food was tasty and fresh. Service, on the other hand, was harried. The staff try very hard, but seem to have trouble keeping up. Perhaps we were just there on an off day. As a tip, I would suggest that it's worth waiting for an outdoor table.

They must've counted the bread basket as the first course, because our meal only had two courses. $42 for 2 courses was way overpriced. I had yogurt and granola as my first course, while my husband ordered the cinnamon roll. I had eggs benedict as the second course; he had french toast. The english muffin on the eggs benedict was...

My wife and I always make a point to pop in here for breakfast. They offer the most unique dishes in a quaint patio setting. My favorite is the grits with poached eggs and Italian sausage. You will love this, even if you are hesitant about grits. The best! Ask for the patio as the indoor seating is crowded and... More

My wife had the lemon ricotta pancakes, and I had the French toast. Both were excellent as was the coffee, and the service of the waitress Carys (pronounced "care iss"). Nice setting. We highly recommend.

My favorite place in Santa Barbara for brunch. A little hidden off of State Street, makes it a bit less touristy then the restaurants on the pier and along the beachfront. Fresh local ingredients, with a revolving menu. Beautiful outdoor courtyard where you can enjoy a fountain and watch birds fly by while eating your meal.
