Stopped in for lunch with my local sales rep and enjoyed a nice quiet lunch. Sandwich was fresh and tasty. Nothing spectacular. Iced tea was good but limited size glass and I didn't get a chance to ask for more. Cupcakes looked ok but I didn't try one. Great place to go relax with a small bite but don't go... More

This place is adorable and it's lovely to see a place specialize is pies since they're my favorite pastry. I've been here on several occasions, and always have a pleasant and delicious experience. Try the pecan or the apple.

This has now been purchased by Shannon and is part of the Crushcakes family of cafes. Came for breakfast two of us had bfast sandwiches which were ok, two has red velvet pancakes which were overly sweet and dry. They looked pretty though. Order at the counter and then find a table. We noticed a number of people were confused... More

We have had pies from Simply Pies before and they were good, but the Apple Pie on Pi Day, 3-14-15, was really great. Fresh, cook apples in a not too sweet filling really was tops. They are not cheap but they are worth what you'll pay. A large fruit pie is $22.00.

Seriously such a cute place! It's a little cottage with an awesome staff and delicious food. I mean what more do you want?! It's a must if you are in the Santa Barbara/Goleta area!

This lovely little find is somewhat off the beaten path for Santa Barbara since most people stay on State St when they visit. Though some of the pies are a little too sweet for my tastes and the atmosphere could use a little polishing. However I love the idea of a pie central bakery enough that I won't hold it... More

A great little bakery in my neighborhood. Very casual, no pretensions. I drop in for breakfast at least once a week.

We happened upon Simply Pies just cruising around the neighborhood killing time until we could pick up my friend's son at our designated meeting time at UCSB. I spotted Simply Pies off to our left and insisted that my friend turn around so we could go check it out for future reference. The charming girl behind the counter told me... More

Be careful, the food here is addicting. After one meal you find yourself craving another Quiche! I have been known to bring home Apple pie just because they are sooo good!

Simply Pies is a nice informal place. They do pies and not much else. We were there for lunch and had pot pies. I liked my chicken pot pie but was told that the beef is more flavorful. And the sweet pies are excellent. I had mixed berry which is mostly blueberries and was good. The had us test a... More
