“High quality coffee in delightfully inviting setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014 via mobile

The owners and staff make customers feel genuinely welcomed and cared for. They roast their own beans and really take pride in the quality of the coffee and presentation. Not to mention selling Reanuad's amazing pastries!

“Excellent coffee and croissants”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

Great coffee and authentic French-style croissants.

Coming from Melbourne, where coffee is almost a religion, we struggled to find coffee of commensurate standard during our holiday in California - so we were stoked to find good coffee in Santa Barbara!

“Great coffee roasted on site”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

Great coffee, great owners and employees. I regularly buy their store roasted beans to brew at home, too. I would give them an excellent rating if they changed up their morning pastry selection a bit more often.

A great coffeehouse right in the best area to see the main sites of the city. Nice people too. Right across the street from El Presidio.
