Top Quality Deli, 1/11/2014
Reviewer: Mitch from Santa Barbara, CA
The food is excellent. Their sandwiches and salads are excellent. The service was excellent. I highly recommend this small eatery.


Great View & Great Food!, 9/19/2013
Reviewer: Matt from Santa Barbara, CA
We found the Book Ends Cafe walking by Antioch (its on the roof), the food was great, they provide service with a smile, and there is a nice breeze and view from the rooftop deck. We tried the chickpea sandwich and the chicken sandwich (the Banh Mi was sold out, apparently it's that good!). I had half of each sandwich and within the first bite my heart was fluttering like a butterfly. Within the first five bites I knew I had found my new go-to lunch spot downtown! They don't just serve run of the mill deli sandwiches here, they serve gourmet sandwiches at reasonable prices, with great sides, and a cool drink selection. I can't wait to go back and try to get my hands on the Banh Mi! Anyone try it yet? Let me know how it is!


A Hidden Gem, 9/19/2013
Reviewer: Stephine from Santa Barbara, CA
Went here for lunch today with a friend, and it did not disappoint! I had the pickled beet sandwich and it was amazing. Homemade pickles came on the side that had a little kick to them. Everything they make looks wonderful and very healthy. We sat on the outside patio which was lovely. A hidden gem in downtown Santa Barbara.


Useful Book Ends, 9/1/2013
Reviewer: Lou Cannon from Summerland, CA
This is an interesting new restaurant by husband-wife team of Dominic Shiach and Carmen Deforest. Tasted their cooking--it's Carmen's actually- previously at a catered meal and everything worked. At Book Ends my wife and I both had brisket Banh Mi--nice combination of meat and pickled veggies. Good Arnold Palmer, too. We'll be back.


Excellent Sandwich, 8/23/2013
Reviewer: Andrew from Santa Barbara, CA
Just went to Book Ends for the first time & the Brisket Bahn Mi Sandwich was delicious. The meat was juicy & flavorful and the pickled carrots & radish along w/the jalepeno vinaigrette were super tasty. The sandwich was a good size, too, and they didn't skimp out on the meat. EXCELLENT SANDWICH. The side of sweet pickles was a perfect compliment. Looking forward to my next trip.
