Brunch was really good and I am very picky! the eggs were delish! the view is just ok since you are not on the water but the little outside seating was nice

The setting for the cafe is perfect with the old time architecture and table decore. The brunch was in keeping with that of a farm house - solid & satisfying.

Stopped on our way to Montecito. Got different breakfast choices with a salad. All were delicious. Jennifer M. was our server outside which is dog friendly. Our dog enjoyed a dog treat and bowl of water.

Our first visit ever. Easy on/off 101 freeway. Our server Jennifer was sweet and attentive (drinks always refilled, needs anticipated); the meals arrived in a very short period of time after order was placed; simple menu; flexible with options; reasonably priced. Dog friendly outdoor patio.

We ate breakfast at the Summerland Beach Cafe during the week. Coffee/food and service were excellent - right off of the highway, plenty of seating...followed by a walk on the beach were a great way to start the day.
