I had read a review that Jeannine's baked the best lemon bars ever. Although we did not have a meal here, we did purchase a lemon bar and a brownie as afternoon treats. The lemon bar was such a tasty combination of sweet and tart flavors (loved the lemon zest) and the brownie was rich but not to excess. The... More

This was an excellent breakfast. The atmosphere was lively though a bit too noisy inside for our tastes. Next time we will sit outside. We were there at 8:15 am on a Sunday morning and if we had waited past 8:30, there would have been a wait but I can see why. It's obviously a very popular place to be... More

Cute little place. It gets crowded and parking may be challenging, but well worth it. I had the California chicken salad and my husband had the club sandwich. The portions were generous and unfortunately we didn't have any room left for dessert because we were stuffed. The baked goods looked so yummy...guess we have to go back next time were... More

It was just the place we were looking for. I was feeling a bit worn out from the vacation & needed a good breakfast with some pep! I loved the atmosphere~ casual yet chic. Sunny, inviting, busy but not out of control. Just enough to wake me up. I opted for a lighter healthier choice~ an egg white & veggie... More

Generally don't eat French toast but my date ordered the banana French toast (I ordered the lobster Benedict - almost as good!). You could become addicted. Seriously sick good!! Menu is killer - hands down the best in Santa Barbara for breakfast/brunch

The iced coffee was the best! The food was very fresh and really good. The apple maple scone was my favorite. We dined here twice while on vacation. The staff remembered us, which was impressive. Highly recommend.

Service is a little different here as you go to the counter to order your meal, they give you a number and you seat yourself. When your food is ready they bring it to you. The daily menu is limited but the food is fresh, fresh, fresh. The quality of our salads and burger were great. You can eat inside... More

The concierge at the Four Seasons recommended this spot and we are glad they did. Fantastic coffee and food. I had the breakfast tacos and they were so good. We even got a seat outside and were able to enjoy the walkers and morning sun. Definitely a go to.

We only grabbed a pastry from the counter, but kinda wished we had sat down to eat because the hit breakfast looked delicious! I had a bear claw in which they offered to heat it. I've never had one heated before (where have I been??) & it was amazing!
