Delicious soup and delightful sandwich!

My sandwich was very simple; turkey on wheat with lots of veggies. The bread was very fresh as was the turkey and... read more

The Savoy Cafe and Deli was so great: the food was great and gluten free. The corn muffins and chocolate chip cookies were especially tasty but honestly everything was pretty good.

If you're gluten free eating out can be tricky, breakfast can be even trickier and eating on the go can be impossible. But not in Santa Barbara. The Savoy Cafe & Deli is absolutely fantastic. If you are GF (or not) then stop off and visit. The choice was extensive, the quality of food was terrific and the service was... More

We were visiting from Canada and only found out about this fantastic spot after hearing about it on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. So happy to have found out about it. The pancakes, huevos rancheros, gluten free banana bread, Turkey fritters and incredible bacon were our favourites. We were in Santa Barbara for a week and ate here every day!

The food is as fresh as can be. Lots of options. Vegan. Gluten Free. And meat. The only thing missing are fresh pressed juices. Will come back as often as I can.

We could have eaten here every day of our vacation and never had the same thing twice. You can get a quick salad, have a full-on meal, have just dessert, or all of the above. There are healthy options (I had grilled wild salmon), decadent options (I also had homemade mac & cheese), and even a bunch of gluten-free and... More

Came here for breakfast two days in a row. Excellent huevos rancheros, citrus French toast, fresh orange juice. It has a homey feel inside and a beautiful patio to enjoy the meal. Everything is fresh and tastes great!

So much to choose from, starting with homemade soups, to a well stocked salad bar full of organic choices, to the hot case with delicious hot foods, to the salad case and the regular menu. Gluten free, dairy free, paleo options galore, and even a fully loaded pastry/cookie/treats case. Perfect for any meal, for any sized group. I can't say... More

I used to only go to Jeannine's and think everything else paled in comparison. UNTIL I went here. Food is awesome, service is incredible, atmosphere is really good. I can't wait to try lunch and dinner. But make no mistake THIS IS THE BEST BREAKFAST IN SANTA BARBARA - and I believe I've tried most options! I have a baby... More
