$70 for breakfast for three people, with self-service coffee and no juice. Thrown in the back near an absurdly loud, frenzied open kitchen with clattering silverware and shouting cooking staff. The food itself was decently prepared, but not remarkably so. Nice French dishes, but the ambiance is not here. Not worth the money.

Love breakfast here. The pancake breakfast is the perfect blend. Will be back again. Not recommended for small children as it is a bit cramped and noisy inside. Also, be prepared to wait in line as you must order from the counter.

Excellent pastries and coffee- perfect for the bridesmaids' and groomsmen's breakfast the morning of my wedding!

My husband and I ate at Jeannine's twice for breakfast while visiting the Santa Barbara area in late February. I loved the variety of breakfast items available. And, everything we tried was delicious. You order at the counter and a server brings the food out to you. This place is very popular and crowded, but we were able to find... More

My wife and I had an excellent lunch at this charming cafe in Montecito (she - Chicken Mango Quesadilla, me - House Made Veggie burger). Nice to be eating outside in February after a brisk hike on the San Ysidro trail, probably 10 minutes away.

We cycled here from SB, what a great café, very European, wonderful coffee. 1st visit my friend and I had great coffee with proper Euro style pastries. It was so good we returned an hour later for a second lot. Also on our way home from SB to Phoenix made a detour to stop for breakfast which did not disappoint.... More

Had the turkey sandwich, which was tasteless and dry.. Kale Salad was excellent.. be prepared to wait .. not sure about other food.. a hot spot in Montecito.. probably because it serves breakfast and lunch and is very casual

A must stop if you are visiting Santa Barbara. This quaint little spot is the prefect place to sit on the patio and enjoy some sun while enjoying a wonderful breakfast. The eggs benedict was prefect, from the poached eggs to the hollandaise I can honestly say it is one of the best I have had. (And I eat them... More

7 AM not busy. Walk in and turn in your order and sit down for delivery. We both had scrambled eggs, very crispy bacon, huge order of fried potatoes (probably 3 different kinds of potatoes). My biscuit was really small maybe 2 1/2 inch across, not exciting especially since it is a bakery. Hubby had english muffin. Nothing to brag... More
