“Good breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Service was good and food arrived promptly. Quality very good. Choice of full breakfast or main portion without potatoes is nice touch.

Went in for a little dinner in Buellton and found this little gem. Staff wonderful-funny, accommodating and efficient. Had a breakfast scramble with home fries-yummy! would go again in a heartbeat!

“Little Jewel in The Wine Country”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

If you are in the wine country in Santa Barbara County and have worked up an appite after sampling all that wine, or just want to bring the family in for a great meal,then this is the place for you! This family owned and operated restraunt is one of the best "little jewels" on the central coast. They specialize in "home cooking'' using many of the local farmers products. The menu has quite a variety to please everyone who comes in. The wait staff are very friendly and make you feel like family whenever to visit! I would highly recomend this restaurant to all!

“Waited 20 minutes for waiter to take our order. It was at 7:00pm and not busy.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012 via mobile

The waiter brought us our water. At the table next to us the couple placed their order. He left and to bring their salad. Phone rang he went to answer and at that point we left. We told the waiter we could not wait and he had not done his job. He did not say one word to us. He could have easily taken our order like they do in other restaurants. I do not think the guy had experience.

Jon_McD, Owner at Mother Hubbard's Restaurant, responded to this review, October 10, 2012
I wanted to thank you for your review and for bringing this issue to my attention. I've shared the information you relayed with the food server who was working that night, and discussed what the expectations are in respect to how our staff interacts with our guests. Since I cook dinner a few nights a week, I'll keep an eye on this in the future. Again, thank you for bringing this to our attention so that we can resolve the problem before it happens again.

“Much better breakfasts in solvang for same price.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

The food here is average the kind you would expect in a good coffee shop... Not bad but not great either. The service was a bit slow even though not very busy. The portions are a bit lacking for the price
