Hole in the wall breakfast in Santa Barbara?

Coming back from a wedding on Sunday morning, and want a great hole-in-the-wall place for breakfast that's not too too expensive . . . any suggestions???

    1. Stackey's Seaside in Summerland has a great Breakfast Burrito or East Beach Grill on Cabrillo is right on the sand. Wheat Germ Banana pancakes are really good. Don't question it, just order them. Both are cheap and qualify as hole in the wall's.

      1. NOT Farmer Boy. Bad mistake. What about Renaud's Patisserie & Bistro in the Gelson's shopping center? The pastries are really nice, never been for breakfast, though. It's sort of an tiny upscale bakery hidden in a corner of a strip mall, and is relatively new.

        Do you know about Cajun Kitchen? I kind of like Domingo's Cafe in Goleta. Surprisingly nice space inside with old timey diner vibe and mexican breakfasts.

        1. How about a whole in the wharf, The Minnow, downstairs just around the corner from Brophy Bros.

            I personally LOVE the Farm Boy- it ain't nothing to look at, but man is the food delicious. Hearty, great potatoes and honest service.

            Renauds is great for fancy coffee, and delicious for pastries.

            The Minnow- dress in layers and YOU HAVE A WINNER. Have a fantastic breakfast, then walk it off in any direction!!

            Cold Spring Tavern on the 154 is open for breakfast sat & sun.
