Guy Fieri suggested the turkey fritters so I ordered it. It was too dry and too spicy for my liking. The mac n cheese was light and yummy. The butternut squash was fresh and no frills, delish too. I ordered the chocolate buttercream cake. It was good but the outer edges were dry. It's cafeteria style so don't expect a... More

The selections were wide and varied. All the organic items were listed so you knew what you were getting. My wife and her friend had salads and raved about them. The salad bar scared me, to many choices. I had the Guy plate. The Turkey patty was a little dry but everything else was fantastic including one of the best... More

Sometimes the staff is curt and stressed but the food is fine (we are locals) and we love to sit at the communal table and chat with the tourists. Salad bar always fresh and creative. Many good seasonal entrees. Park in the back. Easy in easy out. Never disappoints. Can be noisy with the noon crowd. Take a sweater if... More

We had an Italian and 9 Grain sandwich - Excellent! wine was good and reasonable. Servers were helpful and friendly. Everything in the deli looked so good I could have taken one of everything home. This appears to be Deli Row - we will return. Community table, bar or a couple of small tables. Very busy with locals, a good... More

The food here is outstanding. One of the best meals in a restaurant I have ever had. I had the Guy plate and it was all that everyone said it would be. The turkey patty was so tasty and the salads incredible. The carrot cake was probably the best I have ever tasted. Can't wait to go back.

Food is great quality and tasty. Atmosphere is comfortable and relaxed, like a coffee house. There were many selections for dinner but I found it challenging as I am allergic to soy and alcohol. Unfortunately, many of the recipes contain balsamic( wine) and/or soy. My wife enjoyed the black bean enchilada with sides of green beans and Greek salad and... More

This is a cafe in down town (State Street area) Santa Barbara. We visited this restaurant with my wife and daughter (freshman in UCSB) looking for freshly prepared breakfast, lunch (or brunch). We read about this restaurant and its fresh local fare. First, they have a nice salad bar just in case someone likes salad or is totally vegetarian. We... More

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.
