Cajun Kitchen is only open for breakfast and lunch. We went for breakfast and it was very good. I had the Cajun sausage omelette and it was very good. I would go back when in the area.

The food is what sells me at this place in Santa Barbara. Stopped here on my way out of town, and had a delicious breakfast. Having jambalaya in the AM was a first for me, but I loved it. The place is small and simple.

Had breakfast here on recommendation from a local. It was worth it. This early Sunday morning visit preceded any rush so it was peaceful and quiet visit. The menu options range from typical American traditional, to the Cajun influenced and centered. Though I wanted to try things like the Jambalaya or blackened catfish and salmon, I ended up going the... More

Because it is a dark and very average looking breakfast diner, I was waiting for a day that wasn't sunny - I like to sit outside in nice weather and there is no outside seating here. In Santa Barbara, it means I waited a LONG time for a day that didn't have nice weather. But finally, a rainy day happened... More

Great menu choice, delicious food, large portions and friendly (but efficient) service. We were visiting from Ireland spending three days in Santa Barbara and loved this place so much we went twice. The omelettes are delicious, coffee is topped up constantly and there's a wide choice on the menu. Bravo.

This is one of my son's favorite places for breakfast in his area. The portions were generous, the food was great and the prices were reasonable.

Always in search of a non-chain restaurant offering good food. Found this in Santa Barbara, which offered a variety of truly exceptional cajun cooking. The grits were so creamy, and the corn bread melts in your mouth. As for the Jambalya it was absolutely a taste treat.

We've always enjoyed the food, but they need to get the dogs on the patio under control. Today there was a little "zipper" going table to table yapping for handouts. The owner was just laughing. Makes for kind of a gross experience.
