Excellent cinnamon rolls. We followed with the breakfast burrito and banana French toast. Burrito was nicely presented but unseasoned chopped tomato filling made it a little bland. Side of guacamole was exquisite. They only have canned drinks, which was a disappointment for this fountain soda fan. French toast was bursting with flavor. The seating system is confusing and undocumented: ordering... More

Value: pricey but nice for a treat 3. Service: mostly self serve, but slow 4. Atmosphere: nice outdoor seating,... More

Expensive compared to other breakfast destinations but very nice. Did not like the queuing system to place orders line moved quickly and efficiently but would be better if table service. Food was very nice and good selection . Would return. I would like to have tried it for lunch. Staff friendly décor good.

Jeannine's is a tiny bit out of the way if you're visiting SB from all the action of the beaches and lower State Street. It might take you 15 minutes by car but it will be worth the trip for sure. I didn't try any of the cake or baked goods but they looked wonderful. I did sit down and... More

We made our minds up to have a good breakfast before hitting the road back to AZ, we picked the right place. Obviously a local favorite with the well heeled, not a Denny's thank goodness. Coffee was delicious and so was the salmon Benedict and of course fresh fruit. Cute little place just don't look in the pastry case, or... More

Healthy and delicious choices for breakfast, with a pet friendly outdoor patio. Friendly staff. Given the quality, expect it to be a bit crowded, especially on weekends.

Jeannine's, two blocks off State St., is airy, comfortable and laid back. It was just what I needed. Healthy California food and delicious-looking pastries. I lingered over my lunch with my Kindle and was left alone. I left replete and refreshed .

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...
