Get here early because this place gets busy. The staff is very courteous and accommodated our special requests without question. We ordered the breakfast burrito and the breakfast sandwich (got it on a croissant, which normally doesn't come that way, but get it, because their pastries are wonderful), both plates came with a delicious potato hash, iced tea and cappuccino...

Staying in a nearby hotel, a staff member recommended Jeannine's the last trip to Santa Barbara. We liked it so much, we couldn't find any other breakfast we enjoyed as much, so we ate here three times. Next trip, we plan to start sampling their lunch menu. Open, airy, great location on Figueroa at State. It feels like a neighborhood... More

Loved the healthy and fresh selection of breakfast options, so much so we went three days in a row. Highly recommend the high protein breakfast (egg whites with sides); the granola/yogurt/berries; the quinoa with compote, nuts and dried fruit and almond milk (a couple of times the server forgot to bring the almond milk which definitely completes the recipe); the...

Visiting Santa Barbara for the first time last week, we were strolling down State Street looking for a brunch spot when we came to Jeannine's. The menu looked interesting, and they had indoor and outdoor seating, so we gave it a try. It was a wonderful experience -- so great, in fact, that I'm using a photo of my cafe'... More

Looked forward to wonderful outdoor breakfast. Salmon and scrambled eggs $13.00 for two small eggs and a few dried up berries. Positive side was the fact that my dog was welcome. Next time I will let him eat and I will just have coffee.

We live in town and are regular visitors to Jeannine's for cookies & other bakery items. We were astonished today after buying cookies and taking them home that they were so stale that they must have been at least 2 days old. In the past Jeannine's used to sell one day old cookies, cakes, etc. but clearly labeled them as... More

We had a group of 5 for breakfast. Everyone enjoyed their food & the atmosphere. We met there around 8:30 on a Sunday morning & had a few tables to pick from both inside and outside. By the time our group left there was a line waiting to order/sit. You order and pay at the counter, you get an empty... More
