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

After a recent renovation, Scarlett Begonia has expanded their location to encompass the entire inner courtyard behind the Bouchon/Olio entrances making for an amazingly fresh venue that affords visitors the same wonderful cuisine with an added bar, patio space, and patisserie all within steps of one another. The staff were all very warm in welcoming us with the Manager Lisa... More

We made a reservation here for two people for a romantic dinner because we heard about the lovely private outdoor patio they have. They took our reservation knowing they had the entire outdoor patio reserved for a private party complete with a keyboard and DJ playing loud music with a lot of people. So they put the regular dinner guests... More

Went here on a recommendation from our host and was so glad we did. Loved it so much we returned the following day. Having been in California for about 5days, I had struggled to find a decent place for simple and good food. My first breakfast here was the quinoa oatmeal served with the most delicious almond milk I've ever... More

Excellent Easter brunch but a bit pricey at $40 a head. Gorgeous goat cheese crepe that was a lovely mix of tart and sweet. Brioche French toast to die for with nectarine slices and pistachios. Best orange juice I've had in a long time. Very good service, too.
