Had the turkey sandwich, which was tasteless and dry.. Kale Salad was excellent.. be prepared to wait .. not sure about other food.. a hot spot in Montecito.. probably because it serves breakfast and lunch and is very casual

A must stop if you are visiting Santa Barbara. This quaint little spot is the prefect place to sit on the patio and enjoy some sun while enjoying a wonderful breakfast. The eggs benedict was prefect, from the poached eggs to the hollandaise I can honestly say it is one of the best I have had. (And I eat them... More

Looked for a place to get out of the rain for breakfast while headed back to L.A., and this place was packed, which is always a good sign. Service was a little slow, but worth the wait.

We love to eat at Jeannine or take the food to go. The food is fresh and delicious. We love the breakfast entrees, salads and sandwiches. The baked good are wonderful. Great people watching too.

We really enjoyed the quality of the food and service at this restaurant. My local friends recommended it and it was totally worth it. The high protein dish kept me full until evening and it was very delicious. The coffee was excellent considering I am very picky about the quality of coffee and how it is made.

Arrive early to find a table at this charming establishment. The food is fresh and great and the DUNGENESS CRAB OMELET is outstanding - only available on the weekend. There is outdoor seating if the weather is nice.

If you want a local spot that won't disappoint - Jeannine's is the place. Great outdoor dining, especially in good weather - only place to be served.
