This little restaurant was a very pleasant suprise. Situated in a courtard reminicent of a location in France, you feel like you aren't in California. Eating outside with a small wonderful provides a great backdrop to sit, relax and have a wondeful meal. I had egg's benedict and my wife crepes. Both were amazing...

A friend had eaten there and recommended it. It is in a little courtyard off State Street. It is easily missed walking down the street. Once you are there it is a pleasant quiet scenic courtyard. I tried the summer omelet for dinner. It is not a usual dinner I get but it was done well with many vegetables. They... More

We are locals. We went for breakfast recently and had such a good experience we came back 4 days later to try dinner. Both menus were incredibly creative. We dine out often and we have become pretty jaded. It is hard to come up with new tastes for breakfast but they have done it. We are in their lovely patio... More

It was good. It was too bad they served me burnt bread and did not seem to pay any attention to it. I ordered a cheese plate with my glass of Cava which was very good.

On first look state street looks like your typical outdoor mall. But wander into the courtyards and you will find this hidden courtyard gem . Had a wonderful breakfast complete with bloody Mary's and mojitos . Go see the courthouse then hop on over to Scarlett begonia for breakfast. You won't be disappointed.

Best Bloody Mary I've ever had!! Food was also delicious. A hidden gem, not easy to find. A must if you're visiting Santa Barbara. You will not be disappointed.

The courtyard offers a very cozy atmosphere making you feel like you've been whisked off to a village in southern France. A simple menu with lots of tasty choices. I had the Kale Cesar salad which sadly had only a tiny piece of avocado, hardly worth mentioning it in the menu description. But it was fresh and a generous serving.... More

We found this little restaurant tucked back inside of a beautiful courtyard and were thoroughly impressed. Our brunch was delicious! The atmosphere is relaxing and the service wonderful. We were all able to find a dish to our liking and will definitely be back for this dining experience again!

This little place is a bit hard to find but worth the effort. It is down an alleyway and around the corner from the main street. You arrive into the courtyard but can get inside seating if preferred. We were there for breakfast and everything was amazing..real fresh squeezed orange juice (a real peeve of mine if they advertise fresh... More
