Good Recs for Brunch/Lunch in Santa Barbara

  • 1

Hi all!

I'll be driving up to the San Jose area in May and wanted to stop by Santa Barbara for a nice brunch or lunch. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. I will prefer a place that has a nice setting (near the beach, outdoors etc.) but the most important thing is GOOD FOOD.

thanks in advance!

  1. We were up last summer and had a great brunch at Tupelo Junction (www.tupelojunction.com) on State Street. We were a large party and every single person was happy with their order. That never happens, ever.

    Also, if you have a second, stop at C'EST Cheese (www.cestcheese.com) for some fabulous selections. They also have baguettes from the bakery next door. 825 Santa Barbara St.
