Good homestyle cooking and service. Food is consistently good, homestyle. Nice portions, almost too much. Staff is always courteous.

We came here for brunch one morning and we absolutely loved everything about this place. The staff were friendly and helpful. The menu is varied and all well priced so you're bound to find something you like. We ordered the breakfast burrito and it was amazing, massive portion size but such good quality food. When we came to pay, we... More

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.
