Our new favorite in Santa Barbara! My daughter and I had brunch here on Sunday and it was delicious!! I had shrimp and grits and after a recent trip to Charleston i can honestly say they beat it! My daughter had the lemon pancakes which were great. We were recommended here by my family ( I grew up in SB)... More

Had brunch here with two other couples on a Sunday morning. Ryan, our server, was attentive and helpful. All the wait staff were great as was the owner or manager. Location is a bit tricky as it is in a courtyard off the parking area. You should be able to find it, though. I had the Soft Scramble - eggs... More

We ate here Christmas Eve, and while it was pleasant, it wasn't anything like what we were expecting. Most of us had the cheeseburger, the other entrees were a touch too esoteric for our taste. The place is based on baked items freshly prepared. The restaurant is hidden in an interior courtyard off of Victoria Street, and is split across... More

I enjoyed a terrific brunch here. My portion of Eggs Benedict with ham was so large I could not finish it, though it was my fault for tucking into my partner's side dish of fries. We sat outside and the patio heaters kept us lovely and warm. Service was prompt and attentive throughout.

What a wonderful experience. We sat outside on their patio and felt like we were at a cafe in Spain. It was gorgeous. The eggs benedict and brussel sprouts were to die for. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable about their menu. We were so happy with our experience and would recommend you try their delicious food!

I visited the Begonia solo. I was treated like the invisible woman. The waitress had too many tables and neglected everyone....not her fault. My pancakes, three very small ones, were burned and should not have been served. In addition, they were already covered with syrup when delivered. I don't do syrup, but the hostess who delivered them ran away with... More

Their menu changes, so, you might not be able to order the same thing twice -- which probably isn't a bad thing since there are lots of good things that come from their kitchen. When we were there our group had crab benedict -- which disappeared and I heard was quite good. And egg dishes (one a Mediterranean) -- also... More
