Great food, but requires patience

Spent the weekend in Santa Barbara with our kids and our daughter found this place online as highly recommended. It's not easy to find in the maze of buildings and we waited a very long time for a table, but the food was excellent. They made breakfast something unique. Not just scrambled eggs... read more

We sat outside in their courtyard and on a nice, not too warm day, try and do this. The restaurant is too stuffy. The bathroom is shared by many different establishments and waited for over 10 minutes for a woman to get out and finally gave up. If you have small children, I would make sure they have gone to...

Hard to find but worth the search. Great breakfast menu, gourmet quality dishes, baked goods and coffee. Brunch or lunch is just as delish. Patio or indoors, very pleasant decor, nice service and a must stop for the early eats.

I always enjoy dining at the Scarlet Begonia. I don't get out as often as I'd like to but going here ads a touch of class along with delicious food. So nice to sit in the patio and relax over good food.

Was wandering through Santa Barbara looking for a late breakfast. A waitress at another restaurant recommended Scarlett Begonia. It is off state street and I've passed it many times unaware of its existence. In a beautiful umbrellaed patio this is one of our new faves. Had the lemon ricotta pancakes and soft scrambled eggs. Both were outstanding. Quiet, romantic, will... More

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.
