Nice spot for lunch, many options including a big salad bar, hot and cold items. Didn't try the bakery items but will be back for coffee/tea. Prices are reasonable for quality, fresh food.

The food is fine, even good. But the prices just add up too fast. We have paid $50 for 2 people for lunch, without any alcohol. You also order at the counter, so there is no amazing service either. We have been there several times because it is near my husband's work, but I think I will go to a... More

For a European guy Santa Barbara is like coming home in many respects. And having lunch at savoys only adds to that. Great tasting honest food. Very kind and helping people. And in all a perfect setting to enjoy lunch in a great town. If you visit Santa Barbara this should be your lunch stop.

Great blend of deli and cafe so you can add a Noosa yogurt to your breakfast from the fridge if you like. They have great gluten free options on the menu and from the bakery. I had the gluten free flapjacks with a mountain of fresh berry's which was delicious Coffee is good to

This is an excellent place. We visited to take away some lunch for our trip down the PCH (having spotted it the previous day), and it was money well spent. If I was a local I would be here every weekend. Visit!

We have almost all our meals here whenever we visit SB. Best wild salmon dinner. Side of squash was best I've ever had. Chocolate Buttermilk Cake is sinfully rich. Take one to go. Staff is welcoming and gracious. The place has a great atmosphere. Very reasonably priced for the quality of food as well as the skill of the chef... More

My wife and I ate here because we saw it on Triple D. This place serves a lot of fresh and healthy food. It has a great salad bar. We skipped this stuff and got coffee with a brownie, which was lovely and massive, and some Lemon Cake which was very tasty also. I would highly recommend this place. The... More

2nd visit from out of state. When in SB, it is a must. Enjoy the salad bar or made to order grill. And the desserts are AMAZING.
