Great place!

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.

Off the beaten path but worth the search. A small gem in Santa Barbara. Excellent food, quiet ambience that will let you enjoy the food and the company. Fresh, locally sourced and thoughtfully prepared. The wait staff were charming and efficient. Recommended by another restaurant. I suggest the duck, also, the salads and side dishes were really delicious. Fresh fish... More

Tucked away in a little courtyard off of State Street we had a delicious lunch, everything house made...crostini, cheeseburger chicken curry sandwich and lemon granite dessert with berries and cream. Everything was exceptional and the servers were helpful and attentive. This restaurant epitomizes Santa Barbara dining. Great patio dining...not a huge place so reservations were helpful. Very dog-friendly. We won't... More

We ate breakfast here twice while we were in Santa Barbara and, by the looks of the crowded restaurant, it's very popular. Nice atmosphere; there are outside as well as inside tables but we ate inside because it was chilly one morning and raining the next. Service was pleasant California-laid back. Husband had an omelet he liked very much -... More

Food was amazing. This small restaurant is in an area of small shops off the main drag. Service was fun and attentive. Chef put together an amazing menu. Loved it!

I had a nice Apple salad here on the terrace. There are not many gluten free options but the salad was very nice. Loved the ambiance.

We at here for breakfast at the recommendation of our hotel. It's a cute restaurant in a little patio just off state street. There is indoor and outdoor seating. The menu while not huge has a wonderful selection of food with great flavors. We had a party of 8 so we tried a lot of food and it was all... More
