This cafe has delicious choices for breakfast. The service was friendly and attentive, and the atmosphere was inviting. Be sure and plan ahead, since this is a popular restaurant and may be crowded.

I usually just have lunch here, but the breakfasts are great too. Check out the salmon and quinoa Benedict breakfast. The uptown location is always busy, but worth the wait. They have matcha now too.

We were in Montecito for a long weekend. Loved this place. I don't typically like scones, but you must get the pineapple scones if they have them. Light, lightly sweet, just incredible. We had pancakes on another visit and left very happy. Go!!!

We walked around looking at different restaurants for lunch and chose Jeannie's Bakery. This was the right choice!

Casual dining and always delicious, fresh food. The service is quick and polite. It's also a pleasure to be able to dine outside.

This is not the cheapest breakfast place but you are in Santa Barbara so that should not shock you. The baked goods are terrific as well as the breakfast. Nice atmosphere and the staff is very efficient in seating you even on a busy weekend. If you want to splurge a little then is the place.

It's not that the food here is bad. The problem I have with the place is that it is a bit pretentious, and, more important, not a particularly good value. The prices are high and the portions are rather small. The salads are the best bet.

Great local breakfast place. Excellent food, not the least expensive but reasonable. Friendly helpful staff.
