Delicious coffee and pastries and great service. Try the oatmilk, you won’t regret it. We had iced lattes, croissants, and the blueberry lemon scone. So delicious! Came back the next day

We stopped in Santa Barbara for coffee and found the Handlebar Coffee Roaster Company via Trip Advisor and this wonderful place is situated in Santa Barbara's downtown and right across from an old Spanish mission (museum). We have been on the road quite a bit...More

I loved the cappucino!. A little cold for my preferences, but really good. The service was good too. Nice people! I tried two different places for coffee here in Santa Barbara. The other was good, but this was the best.

Excellent coffee prepared by an attentive staff with an owner usually on the premises. Their most recent location on De La Vina provides even more space, is more attractive and has lots of parking for the area. Outside seating under umbrellas complements cozy indoor tables...More

The coffee was mediocre and very pricey. Most likely not a return visit for us. Nice outside seating and dog friendly.

Well worth the wait. It took a while to remodel and minimize the decor, but just the right fit for the neighborhood. Another good coffee to try!!

M'm M'm Good! Tasty coffee drinks paired with delicious local pastries. Bike parking in front of the restaurant draws cyclists to the locale.

Dune coffee served at Handlebar is perhaps the best coffee I have ever tasted. The atmosphere, the nice people and great service only adds to the experience. Highly recommended.
