I love this place. All healthy stuff and made to order.

As has been mentioned on other reviews, it's a bit surfer dude / hippy but / trendy tattoos but, you are in California after all!!

Even as a hard nosed Londoner, I thought this place was great. After finding this, it has become our default breakfast spot en route to the beach.

The hardest thing is actually choosing just one item from a very appealing list on the menu.

Judging by the local clientele here, seems like this place is on to something.

Hippies have difficulty cleaning anything. So don't expect a clean environment here. My nose started running and I was sneezing - while sitting in their semi-outdoor patio. I wondered if my spoon was washed? The food itself is doused in honey or agave. The Acai itself isn't too sweet, thank goodness. I'm happy to have experienced a laid back place but for $20, the coffee shop next door might have been more rewarding.

Everything about this lovely, smoothie cafe tucked on the very end of State Street ticks all the boxes Santa Barbara has reputed for - ultimate perfection. Anything off the Backyard menu will leave you feeling full, vibrate and well worth the price. I would eat here everyday if I could!

Acai and fruit bows, different varieties offered. They also have smoothies. We chose the fruit bowls and they were fresh and tasty!

We were on a trip up the West Coast, stayed in various hotels along the way, ate all the pancakes, bacon, maple syrup...man v food breakfasts you could imagine, but this place beats them all hands down.

Fresh clean, healthy options. I tried the yoghurt pot, portion size was very good, yoghurt was very sweet, walnuts, strawberries, blackberries and honey. Amazing!!!!

They also sell blender pots where the base is a combination of ingredients blended then any toppings added above. Acai pots were very popular and there's a great mix of hot/cold pots to choose from.

Well done guys, service was great as well
