We had a very good lunch here on our weekend stay. They have great lemonade and we really enjoyed our pastrami sandwiches.

The meal was excellent. Everything was fresh and hot when served. The plates are large servings, so come with an appetite. There is a great variety of dishes to choose from. The waiter was knowledgeable and very pleasant. Also, they have an extensive wine list of the local wineries in Santa Ynez Valley. We had a Rose Syrah that was... More

While I normally don't like to walk up to a counter and order my food, this restaurant is so worth a little self service. My husband and I shared a breakfast of ham and eggs that was ridiculously good. The portions were huge! And the biscuit was one of the best we've ever had. They do serve you, and the... More

I think Succulent Cafe has consistently good food. They used to have amazing food. Something has changed over the last couple of years and the lack of creativity and focus on local products is somehow now missing. That being said, they have good food. A small selection of wine by the glass and beer. I hear the brunch is good... More

It was our first evening in Solvang and Art of Sevtap Winery suggested Succulent and it was incredible. Service was exciting and the food was impeccable.

Late afternoon on the road back home after a weekend away, getting a little peckish. Stop in touristy Solvang for an early dinner, ended up at Succulent Cafe around 4p. We’re an hour early for dinner, hey, that’s fine, we’ll sit on the patio and enjoy a beverage and charcuterie/cheese (3+3 @ $33). Moved on to dinner: 3 Little Pigs... More

Amazing sandwiches and salads w/ a lovely patio. Great in house wine selection and excellent food! A little higher end than most places in Solvang yet still casual.

The Three little pigs. Tender and flavorful. One of Silvang's gems that you will love! Solvang has some truly fine dining, a relief from the fast food circuit.

You can eat inside or outside this restaurant and it's easy to find space for a larger group (7 in our case). The service was good and the menu was varied so everyone could find something they liked--duck, mussels, hamburger, steak, and vegetarian options. The food was fresh and tasty, but the prices seemed a bit high for what we... More

We chose this place since they allowed our dog on the patio. The sandwiches and salads are good albeit a bit pricey. The patio is relaxing and restaurant is a bit off the main road which is nice. They had a sign for pizza and wine special-would be nice deal if there on that weeknight.
