“Great choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

We ate lunch at this cafe when passing through Santa Barbara, because of the great reviews it got and because it was even featured on a Food Network TV show. We had a chicken sandwich and it didn't disappoint. The ingredients were simple, but the quality and freshness was there. I would recommend this cafe to anyone passing by Santa Barbara.

“What a Remarkable Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

Though you should not expect a very cheap breakfast, the food is remarkable, what we had was not sophisticated but was made with the best ingredients and that is not a given at any times. They pay attention to all details and this was a place that I would stop in SB just to have breakfast.

“Great place- good choices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012

What a great lunch and dinner we had within our 4 day visit. Excellent food, good value, great staff to assist. The soups are delicious and the desserts wonderful. The salad bar offers great options for all diners. Easy parking across the street in a city lot. What a find. Thanks for the posts that preceded our visit. A nice easy dining experience for any meal of the day!

“Great deli & cafe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012

We were looking for something other than mexican/seafood/barfood, but also something that is kid friendly. After having a horrible meal for dinner the night before, we wanted something fresh and Savoy fit the bill. On a side street from State Street, it is tucked in between other cafes but this one stands out for its atmosphere. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We ordered breakfast: breakfast sandwich, breakfast burrito, and pumpkin muffin for our little one. The staff pulled a booster high chair out of the back and immediately brought out his muffin. Our food came shortly after and everything was very delicious. I also ordered a latte which was the best one I've had in a while! The deli cases were full of fresh salads, sandwiches and the like--very tempting to return that same day for lunch!

“Our favorite casual meal in Santa Barbara, worth a visit.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

If you like healthy, cozy, casual and simple, this is the place. A wonderful soup and salad bar and various yummy dishes to choose from behind the counter. Similar type food to a Whole Foods food bar but with a nicer atmosphere to eat and a quaint table to have coffee or tea. They had a very nice tea selection. Some nice baked goods too. Decent price.
