Muffins, scones, breakfast & take away, but when's the last time you had made-from-scratch oatmeal with heated milk and berries and/or bananas? It's a hidden gem and a favorite for locals having their rice-burners serviced across South Kellogg. Small, pleasant, calm tables and an armchair seating area. If they're busy, the adjacent restaurant area is available. There are couple of... More

We were thrilled that our hotel was right next door to the XO Coffee Bar. We were there every morning- their cold brew was fantastic. Their americanos were perfection. Their fresh baked yummies were INCREDIBLE! Such a gem. We often struggle while traveling to find stellar espresso and coffee drinks- and LOVED it here!

Seriously, if you're a Coffee & Tea place that refuses to give customers your WiFi password, at LEAST give them a warning or put up a sign....

Yummy little casual breakfast place, they might have light lunches. Order at the counter, they bring your food. Also great for coffee drinks and baked good. Staff seemed like they cared to make and serve good food.

I spent five nights in Goleta for work, and this quickly became my daily spot. The coffee was good, and the service was great. We had breakfast here one morning, and although there was a bit of a wait for our food, it was nicely done.

My girlfriend and I had a lovely breakfast here. The coffee was great quality and I would highly recommend the pancakes! It also had a lovely atmosphere and interior despite the plain roadside exterior.

My friends and I came to eat lunch at Sage and Onion and sat here where it was less crowded. I ordered an espresso after my meal and it was brought out to me with a smile. Our barista also was very attentive and bussed out plates and brought us water. I'll be in here again to try a pastry... More

Small coffee/breakfast shop connected also a nice café. I very much like the scones. They are very large, and sometimes large things taste not so great but these do. Its English style breakfast shop, in a small strip mall, not so easy to find but worth going if your in Goleta/UCSB area. My coffee and well as friends drinks were... More

Tasty pastries created daily on site and a wide selection of teas and coffee drinks in beautiful and comfortable surroundings...throw in free wifi and friendly accommodating owners and you have the perfect combo for a coffee spot off the beaten track. It's worth searching out, trust me. I've found my new favorite coffee haunt!
