Reviews by the General Public

Poor Service
Reviewer: Kenneth Anthony from Portland, OR
Staff / Management needs improvement. The staff are unaware who is next or who is cutting in line (odd). A wait in line has usually been twice as long as anticipated. I have complained to management on their customer service and have received a shrug. I only go with friends who insist on going but prefer other places around beautiful Santa Barbara to this one.


Pretty good food, order taking confusing
Reviewer: Glenn from Buellton
Not quite sure what is up with this place. There are two cash registers, one it seems like for sandwiches and the other for coffee and pastry. I would have liked to order more but seemed silly to go to the other cashier which is what it seems like they expected me to do. The bread here is the star. Tried the highly rated Cubano, pretty good, I think you can get better across the street at Panino. The pastries were Ok, did not seem spectacular, not sure if they are after the healthier dessert people. This place is a SB institution since 1981 so they must be doing something right, they did seem popular the couple of times I went. One of the workers behind the counter really talks it up with the ladies adding I'm sure to the popularity of this place for those ladies after that kind of attention. Off the beaten State St path, more of a place for locals. Next door Cheese place that also offers sandwiches, I wonder if they get their sandwich bread here?


So Sad, Food So Bad.
Reviewer: Jennifer from Santa Barbara, CA
I had been wanting to go to this cafe and finally I was downtown at the right time. I ordered a sandwich and a cookie. The sandwich and the cookie were tasteless. So sad. The guy behind the counter was really outgoing and helpful. But it didn't make the food good.


Worst Baked goods in a long time
Reviewer: John URsoleo from Santa Barbara, CA
Like another reviewer, we bought brownies and muffins and left the store with our mouths watering. It was a good thing because there was no moisture at all in anything we bought. Dry brownie that cracked when bit, horrible muffins also so dry that the squirrels did not want them. This place is not longer on our stop-list as we travel through.


Amazing vegan chocolate muffin
Reviewer: a p c from Santa Barbara, CA
I'm not even vegan, neither's the boyfriend, and we agree it's one of the best muffins in the world. The blueberry muffin here is so pretty too, like a supermodel in the muffin world. Raisin walnut rolls are such a bargain and to die for. Roco coffee that's NOT state street blend like everywhere else in town (blech). I wish they had donuts, but I also don't, because I always hit up ODB after the gym and that would totally defeat the purpose.


Go for the bread only!
Reviewer: gary linden from Malibu, CA
Don't waste your money on overpriced microwaved eggs ($9.00) plus another $3.00 if you want bacon. Whatever is supposed to be inside the croissants, is just a hint of it. Very stingy. Stick to the fresh bread which is quite good.


i don't get the hype
Reviewer: Ryan from Santa Barbara, CA
The bread is good. I will give them that. I just don't get the prices and the service always comes across as spacey and flustered. I went for breakfast and paid $8.50 for what turned out to be watery microwaved eggs and a small side salad. Turkey bacon was another $3. The bacon was already cooked and they just heated up like they would do at a fast food place like subway. The whole meal was fast food quality at $11.50. Actually McDonald's breakfast tastes better in this humble man's opinion.


Good Ciabatta
Reviewer: Paul L from Santa Barbara, CA
I only eat two things here and they are both some of the best I have had. Their ciabatta is the best in Santa Barbara, it is the perfect texture and the taste is amazing. The other thing I like is their vegan chocolate muffin...so rich you wouldn't know it is vegan. Counter service is always efficient.


Not Worth My Money or Time
Reviewer: Amberly from Santa Barbara, CA
For the price of the food, I was expecting something magnificent. The pastries were bland, the service was slow and the coffee was not fresh. I suggest they re-evaluate the menu and come up with some creative ways to entice customers back to the bakery


TRY the CUBANO.
Reviewer: Sharon from Santa Barbara, CA
I followed Kathryn's advice below and tried the Cubano. Best sandwich I've had in a good long time. Simply phenomenal. Highly recommended. Service was slightly laggy/slow when I was ordering, but the food proved to be very WELL worth the wait.


Good eats!
Reviewer: JF from Santa Barbara, CA
I come here quite often. The multi-grain cranberry rolls are an absolute delight. And when I come early enough, I get the croissants with ham and cheese, and they definitely put a smile on my face. The vegan chocolate muffin is surprisingly delicious as well. Overall I very much enjoy this bakery. I wish the prices weren't so steep!


Five Stars times TEN!
Reviewer: Kathryn from Santa Barbara, CA
I just had THE BEST sandwich I've ever had. It's called the Cubano and it was fresh, juicy, and delicious. It was recommended by the perfectly wonderful man working behind the sandwich counter and I'm so glad I took his advice. If you want a treat for your taste buds, go there, have this sandwich...you'll be in heaven!
