This place is been here forever, outside /people watching seating in beautiful downtown Santa Barbara. As if the great weather in January is not good enough we have great places to eat. I had Crab cake Benedict breakfast and it was absolutely delicious, home made hollandaise sauce, eggs cooked to perfection and fresh crab meat sure make a difference, hubby had the classic Benedict and i think he loved it (there was nothing left for the birds on his plate). Coffee was very good and the service very attentive. We met Trini, the new owner, She and her husband had taken ownership of the place 5 months ago and seems like they are doing a great job, the place deserves it! Very glad i revisited Cafe Shell.
The Café is open now for dinner witch is a new thing, i can't wait to try their dinner menu
