Stumbled across this café off State Street near a bus terminus. Ordering was a bit confusing as there was a soup and salad station drinks on the other side and then the main counter, good selection of sandwiches and most importantly could get your own personal fillings not prepackaged , deserts and cakes also lovely. would definitely return breakfast menu...

The Savoy was easily the highlight of our foodie weekend in Santa Barbara - so good that breakfasted there two days in a row. Highlights - the Breakfast Burrito and the Savoy Benedict. The only downside is the price, but you certainly get what you pay for - well-crafted food and friendly service.

Went there with my wife! Loved the food! Really delicious! The ambiance is so-so... Service as well but it's very affordable... Worth a trip nonetheless!

Consistently good, healthy lunch spot. Soups, salads, home cooked entrees....order at counter style, though there are plenty of places to sit.

This was our first visit to Savoy for a light brunch. We were greeted by chalk boards displaying the menu, written in such a way as to make it almost impossible to decipher the various options. We asked what soups were available, and we were lead to the self serve soup station at the entry way by an attendant, who... More

After a week of dinners in Santa Barbara, we were looking for something different and found the Savoy on Trip Advisor. Thanks to others who reviewed this eatery we went there and had a delicious meal. There are many options here, from a salad bar to prepared dishes and wonderful bakery goods. The vegetable frittata was excellent. We also had... More

I was so excited to get to have gluten free french toast with berries on top! We took some other gluten free bakery items with us to eat later. Also they have very good coffee!

I'm sitting on the back patio as I write this review because I didn't want to forget. This breakfast burrito is amazing! Best I've had. Very creamy, tons of flavor, tortilla is great, just perfect. Hope I get the chance to come again.

Went here on a Saturday morning around 9:30. Not very busy. You order your food at the counter and the servers bring you your order. The menu is not very large, but everything looked delicious. I ordered the breakfast burrito. It was amazing. The fresh pico de gallo was some of the best I have had. I wasn't alone in... More
