My partner and I enjoyed a few lovely breakfasts here during our stay. The food is good, and seems decently healthy. Only steps away from the beach, this cafe offers great service, good food, and a surfer-vibe relaxed beach cafe. I will be back!

Not bad, not great. Your run of the mill breakfast place. Server was friendly. The place looks a bit run down but it's ok. We had a scramble & the tri-tip meal. Both good. Coffee was strong.

The place was cute, the good was great, I got the King's Hawaiian French Toast and it was delicious. My husband got the Huevos Rancheros, both were excellent. Service was a little slow but it was a rainy day and it was crowded because of that.

We walked an extra distance to eat breakfast here as the reviews were good, we weren't disappointed! I had the chilliquilles which were absolutely delicious. My boyfriend had the Gouda omelette and he really enjoyed it. The Hawaiian French toast looked delicious but we didn't order it. There were a handful of choices that all looked delicious. The location was... More

Situated on State Street, 10 min. walk from the beach. Parking available in surrounding streets. Friendly staff, who modified the menu to suite our needs. Typical American style breakfast reasonably priced. Worth a visit Cannesdid ....... surfingsyd

Picked this place out if the blue and headed out for the day. The device was exceptional and the food was well made and interesting. I would definitely eat here again.

Looking for an easy stop in Santa Barbara, and found a public parking lot near De La Vina, virtually right off the 101, and across the street from the Beachbreak Cafe. We were there kind of on the late side of mid-week lunch, and perhaps for that reason, did not encounter delays or problems with service described by other reviewers.... More

Food came n reasonable amount of time but forgot the toast, had to remind her to bring it. Heard other tables asking 2 times for the same items.... More

Visited during breakfast time. We sat our self inside and had to move due to flying bugs constantly visiting our table. Once outside, we ordered and looked forward to our food. It took a while to arrive, and when it did we wish it hadn't. Each one of our orders were overcooked. Oatmeal had absolutely NO moisture. Our muffin (they... More

As a native Santa Barbara it has always been a pet peeve of mine that you can't get a good breakfast without spending an arm and a leg in the process. Well, my wife and I found ourselves downtown early and in need of breakfast. We were at the corner of Gutierrez and State Sts and there it was, the... More
