I lived in Santa Barbara for a few year in college and one of the cornerstone businesses in the community is Joe's Café. The locals know this spot for two things, French Dip Sandwiches and some of the stiffest cocktails in town. The décor of the bar spans some 70 years as does the artwork, and gives you the feeling of being in an old Spanish Fort settlement town.
This is a primary watering hole for most locals and a starting point for many a weekend evening. This is a place where old and young alike, retired and those in college come to have great food, and even better company. If your looking for a casual meal at a the right price then Joe's is a place to consider.
