Many difference fresh lunch options. I had the fritter which had great taste but disappointed was only lukewarm with pesto green beans. Wife had curry with sweet potatoes which she stated was amazing. Nice staff and very clean cafe style seating. Busy over lunch hour but enough room to enjoy.

Really good selection of fresh, organic food. It's not cheap, but you get what you pay for. I had the yoghurt and granola with fresh fruit, with mango juice and earl grey tea. Also some wheat toast on the side. My partner had delicious french toast. The service was friendly and relatively quick. All in all, a great place for... More

While in Santa Barbara for the weekend, my husband and I and another couple decided to try Savoy Cafe & Deli due to it being on Diners, Drive-in and Dives. You walk it and at first it looks like a grocery store with tables. You have to stand in line to order and one thing I don't like about these... More

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...
