Stopped off for breakfast on our way to Capitola. Wanted a spot that would satisfy both our choices - one wheat-less, the other not at all picky. Great atmosphere, service and most importantly, super coffee. Loved the quirky décor and comfortable surroundings. Sat at the bar although there were lots of options for good table seating. Restaurant was obviously popular... More

Great food. Super helpful staff. Crowded seating. Soup was delicious. Quiche equally good but pecan pie was exceptional

This place is fantastic! They arrange the plates in such a beautiful way and the interior design style is really nice. We can definitely recommend the homemade Quiche, the French toast, the Power Bowl and the Omelettes. If you order a tea, it comes in a Japanese style teapot, don't miss this stunning experience. Best breakfast place in Santa Barbara.

This is a great place to enjoy a healthy salad, sandwich, or fritter. I enjoyed a plate with three salads; kale blueberry, black rice, and spinach. My husband enjoyed the turkey fritter and pesto green beans. We shared and found all to be delicious. Friendly service, too!

This was a fantastic find when training in Santa Barbara. The range and variety of food and drinks was exceptional. It was funny for me to have food weighed on the plate but meant you could order a really wide range of salads as you could have a mixture of all different kinds of food. The blueberry kale salad was... More

Here is not only the best salad bar in Santa Barbara, but the entrees, sides & desserts are amazing. The staff is so helpful & friendly. You order at the counter & the food is brought to your table. Beer & wine or specialty teas & coffee are among the vast array of beverages. My boyfriend loved the chicken marsala... More

Nice spot for lunch, many options including a big salad bar, hot and cold items. Didn't try the bakery items but will be back for coffee/tea. Prices are reasonable for quality, fresh food.

The food is fine, even good. But the prices just add up too fast. We have paid $50 for 2 people for lunch, without any alcohol. You also order at the counter, so there is no amazing service either. We have been there several times because it is near my husband's work, but I think I will go to a... More

Thank you for taking the time to review us! We are happy that enjoyed our food! Our main focus is organic and local from small farmers who we know.

For a European guy Santa Barbara is like coming home in many respects. And having lunch at savoys only adds to that. Great tasting honest food. Very kind and helping people. And in all a perfect setting to enjoy lunch in a great town. If you visit Santa Barbara this should be your lunch stop.

Great blend of deli and cafe so you can add a Noosa yogurt to your breakfast from the fridge if you like. They have great gluten free options on the menu and from the bakery. I had the gluten free flapjacks with a mountain of fresh berry's which was delicious Coffee is good to
