Wonderful - great spot. Farmer's market produce which makes the salads, especially, seasonal and flavorful. Street corn was delightful, as was the pimento cheese w/ grilled bread. Will definitely return - a gem in Santa Barbara.

It’s a casual atmosphere that encourages lingering long after you finish your meal. Fun SB mural on the wall. Back patio would be fun for a group of 20. Also am upstairs space that can be reserved. We started with the Mexican Street Corn which was topped with great seasonings and was delicious. Ask for a knife if you don’t want corn stick in your teeth! We ordered (split)a fried chicken sandwich with the side of fries. Both cooked perfectly and portions large enough to share! full review

Passing through...Outstanding! Local beers, tap wines and a great bar selection. Incredible pizzas, salads and sandwiches. Great people working here. Highly recommend the Taleggio mushroom pizza, buttermilk chicken sandwich, and any salad...
