I love this restaurant! While the food was good, the best part for me was the location. It is located in a courtyard in the middle of a large block off State Street and Victoria Street. It could be a bit hard to find, but it is worth the search. It is quiet and peaceful inside the courtyard, which is... More

My young family and I were staying in Santa Barbara for the week and we decided to try Scarlett Begonia for Easter brunch. We loved it! From finding the place to my last bite of my fried chicken with kimchi ketchup. It was heaven. We sat outside, it felt a little European. The staff was attentive and friendly. Love the... More

We had breakfast/brunch with friends this morning at Scarlet Begonia. Everything was delicious , especially the baked goods (you can shop at their wonderful bakery off of Milpas!!). Do not miss the scrambled eggs with mushrooms, potatoes and vegetables! Best breakfast in Santa Barbara.

The Scarlett Begonia is the restaurant that my wife and I have to go to whenever we are in Santa Barbara. The food is amazing and the staff is great.

Although it was a bit hard to find (even though I had google maps guiding me) when I found it I did not regret it. It's a small adorable restaurant that has a whimsical feeling with fountains, plants and interesting people dining there. The food was delicious, I would love to go back.

The Scarlett Begonia had interesting, tasty vegetarian food and good service. They offer a little courtyard out back that backs up on an ally to dine al fresco. We'd go back.

Ate here for lunch earlier in the week. It was terrific in all respects. Very nice service. My wife loved the curried chicken. I had one of the best burgers ever, very juicy and tasty. It is a bit hard to find, but well worth the effort
