Visiting for a girls weekend from San Diego! The guys behind the counter were the friendliest we encountered in Santa Barbara. The tomato bisque is delish! Also enjoyed the chicken walnut pesto. Grab a bag of the popcorn too. It's so addicting.

Tried several sandwiches and liked them. Every now and then the assemble/presentation is a little off. Still tastes good but it lack a little consistency.
