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.

As my husband would say, I'm a snob when it comes to pancakes. When I tell you the pancakes are great, it is the truth. I take the first bite without syrup which is the true taste and it was light and yummy. The real maple syrup just topped it off. I was very impressed. The other folks at the... More

I was surprised by the manner of service. You stand in line and order and then take your number back to a table and the staff brings you your food. The coffee and water is also self serve. It's a little disappointing for the price you're paying for the food/coffee. The seating was cramped. This is probably a more local... More

This is Jeannine's third location in the Santa Barbara/Montecito area and I think the best one given its size and location. Pleanty of seating both inside and outside and easy parking close by. The breakfast menu is stocked full of great items but try any of the waffles--they're wonderful. Also the coffee is first rate and is worth a try... More

We returned to this cafe, and had good egg dishes, but were disappointed to see the fine gluten-free options were missing. The excellent baker must have moved to another venue. Still a good eat, but not a stand-out.

This place is awesome, we over ordered and waddled out of this place but totally worth it. Huge selection on the breakfast menu, wanted to try everything. Everything we did try was super delicious. You may have to wait but it's totally worth it. We loved it so much we went to their sister cafe in Montecito the next morning.
