I had a great breakfast here, good service, we'll cooked exciting menu with as the name suggests interesting Cajun combinations. A well run excellent breakfast eatery that am sure has a loyal following. Even the more standard breakfast fare eggs benedict etc. we're excellent. Has it's own parking lot too which makes it very convenient.

I have been enjoying the Cajun Kitchen for many years. I keep going back because I feel comfortable there and the food is very good plus the breakfast selections are many and extremely varied. Someday I will try everything but their specials keep drawing me away from the menu. Love having cornbread for breakfast too. Cajun Kitchen I will be... More

Great soul food style cooking. The gumbo brought back childhood memories. This is a place to come back to.

This place was recommended to us for breakfast and I'm glad we went. What an awesome menu for the first meal of the day. Have the Steve's special. Scrambled eggs smothered in their home made chili. Delicious.

We usually love this place, but today everything was off...coffee just ok not the usual French roast, scrambled eggs with cream cheese...cream cheese in a big lump. My first cheeseburger here had meat like the frozen tv dinner variety. Hopefully just at this location.

I had high hopes for this place but felt it was quite average after our breakfast at the Cajun Kitchen. There really isn't anything that I can pinpoint specifically to blame for my nonchalance, but I suppose i didn't love the food. We ordered a side of beignets, which were very forgettable (we didn't even finish them), and though the... More

The place has very good service. The Ortega chilli burgers are very good. We loved sitting outside for lunch, enjoying a mid afternoon day in Santa Barbara. Overall, this place has excellent value and quality

Just another great place to eat breakfast. The service if wonderful and so is the french toast. We had grand kids with us and they loved every dish. Everybody's plate was fair game for them when they saw how good everything looked. Our service was the best and we will always make it back there when we visit Santa Barbara.

Prices are reasonable and the food is very good. We ate breakfast on both a Friday morning, and a Saturday morning around 9:00 AM. Both days we were able to get a table right away, and the service was friendly and prompt. Food portions are generous. We spent less money having breakfast here than at IHOP, and the food here...
