Great food!

I was here for lunch with a friend. The service was good and the food fresh and served quickly. It is a casual place. I plan to return. They were very knowledgeable about gluten-free food.

Did I mention that the bacon is the best I've ever had? You just want to take some to go. I never visit Santa Barbara without eating breakfast here. Everything is so good!

Regardless of which Jeannine's -- in Montecito or on Upper State -- here's often a line, but it moves fast. The menu features food concocted with imagination and love, fresh everything, and pastries and coffee to die for. My scrambled eggs were done ever so well, the potatoes crisp with tender insides; on another visit, my eggs Benedict were perfect.... More

My wife and daughter had been here before and this time I came along. It can be busy on the weekends for breakfast, but food was very good. Homemade scones were tasty. Had traditional breakfast with eggs, sausage, toast, etc. Food had plenty of flavor and taste. Not just a short order cook making the food. Although we didn't have... More

There were about nine of us in a group, and we got to Jeanine's on a hot (!) November afternoon. They were crowded, and they did not have a lot of space outdoors, but they got a table ready for us, and the staff was keen to make sure we had what we needed--and the food was very good.

The food is very specially prepared and good. Everything tasted fresh. Two of us had the Challah French Toast and it was wonderful. It is crowded but the food made the visit worth the wait.

I love the scones and the coffee cake. My lunch favorite is 1/2 BLT on toasted ciabatta bread! Always yummy!

Very busy, but wonderful breakfast and baked goods. Order at counter and they deliver to the table. Limited service, so you have to be willing to get your own refills on coffee and water. But for a very good breakfast of high quality, this is a good option. The Challah French Toast was wonderful. Another in our group had the... More

What could be better on a sunny Saturday in Santa Barbara than a great breakfast sitting outside? Jeannine's bakery on State serves great Granola, yummy pastries - check out their incredible array of Scones - and big coffees. Although a few Kilometres from the main part of downtown - the drive up State to Jeannine's is well worth it.

I read about Jeannine's Bakery in one of the hotel publications. Everything sounded enticing. The cakes and baked goods attested to the talents of the baker. The luncheon salad however, was another matter entirely. A couple of handsful of sad-looking mesclun filled my plate, with hardly any dressing. Commercial chicken pieces crowned the lot. Surprising for a restaurant in Santa... More
