The main shopping district in Santa Barbara is State Street. Mid-way along is Andersen's Danish Bakery where we had a great breakfast. Derek, our server, encapsulated the very best in American courtesy. The waffles are to die for, as is the morning breakfast. They entice...More

I'm sure most people attend for the pastries, so I'm sure I'm bringing down the average, but we went for lunch and it was just okay. We had a great waiter, named Derek I think. He picked up on the mood of the table quickly...More

We were walking the town and passed by this upscale place with all the outdoor tables. It was warm and we found a table in the shade. We ordered some sandwiches and some wine and beer. It took a while, before the food arrived. This...More
