Our family of 4 Went after seeing it on Food Network, for lunch on a Sunday.
Not a big place and overwhelmed by many food fridges and counters.
Once you understand, you have to get your food, you go from one to another because you have salad here, sandwich and warm plates there, dessert somewhere else...coffee and drinks at the bar....with lines....
Once we each got our plates, it was nothing but ordinary for over $15 per person. I had dry lasagna; breakfast plate with burnt toast....
Positive point is some organic options.
Not worth another try!

We were only in Santa Barbara for 2 nights and we visited here twice (the second morning we took a take out as we were heading to LA) The food & service is amazing! We had the citrus dipped French toast with berries, the homemade granola with berries and the pancakes and both times it didn't disappoint! Portion sizes are great and reasonably priced too. Our favourite place to eat breakfast throughout our whole trip!

I told myself I wouldn’t do it.
I was done giving in to the temptations of instant gratification. I was going to hold out for the fulfillment of a long term investment in my future happiness.
But…
One more quick taste wouldn’t hurt, right?
I wouldn’t have to enjoy all of it…just a taste.
My plate arrived, looking healthy as ever. Dressed nicely in greens, I could already anticipate the texture on my tongue.
My fork collected a little bit of everything for a bite of diversity.
As I pulled away slowly, I indulged in the clinging thread of cheese, gooey and stretchy from cheese heaven. I had to open my mouth a little wider to accommodate the oversized bite I ambitiously collected.
As I tossed it around my mouth, the balanced flavors of healthy and indulgence danced.
The Jack was so good…delicious with a hint of guilt. I’m glad I gave in. So glad…
