Great find

We stumbled upon Jeanine's bakery at lunch time. We were lucky enough to grab a table outside. Friendly staff and good food.

This is a bright, airy room and a wonderful place for the weekend brunch/ breakfast. It's hard to make a selection among the great choices like French toast, pancakes, breakfast quesadillas, breakfast burritos, and omelets. We also love stopping at the upper State Street location for scones, muffins, bars and coffee cakes to take home.

We visited with a group of 6 on a Saturday mid morning for breakfast. We were able to get a table pretty quick. It is a very clean place and fresh air sweeps through the open doors. We really enjoyed it. I ate the Veggie Benedict and must say it was one of the best breakfasts I've had. Can't wait... More

We witnessed several bored, frustrated children who were waiting forever to get their meals. We waited almost 29 minutes for s double espresso. I stated to feel cranky as well. Scones were awesome. People were encouraged to linger. Great location at the entrance to an alley filled with shops and other restaurants.

We arrived before 10 am and it was just starting to fill up. We managed a nice sunny spot on the patio beside the restaurant in the pedestrian walkway and the larger of the patios (the patio out front is street side). It is a walk up, order and find a table place where you take your number outside and... More

You order and pay at the counter and then sit down, Great food. Great Coffee. I personally like more syrup with my pancakes but that's just me. Good restrooms too.

A very popular breakfast and lunch spot right on State Street, you order at the counter (like a cafeteria) and wait for a person to deliver the meal. We stood in a rather long line to order and waited to pay since they were quite busy. The cashier apparently saw a friend in line and took those people ahead of... More

Four of us went to Jeannine's after Pilates and had a wonderful lunch/breakfast. I was there visiting and now wondering why we can't have one in South Carolina! I had a sandwich and others had breakfast. We also got some goodies to go. You will love it. I have heard there is nothing bad here. Friendly, fast, delicious.

Really love their scones (not doughy just tasty), took home 4 different kinds in addition to having one with breakfast. Also, had the french toast this time and it's yummy (-: Outdoor seating is great for us with our adorable dog. The only downside for the SB location is the parking wars so just park down the street and walk... More

We love Jeanine's - period, end of story. The Montecito location has a better vibe but is more difficult to find a table. The curry chicken sandwich is an orgasmic delight for your taste buds and the salads are great too. The staff is very accommodating. When in Santa Barbara we always stop for lunch.
