Recent Reviews

I love to come here when we're visiting Carpinteria.
There is a lovely outdoor patio with plenty of tables and places to sit in the shade. The atmosphere is a wonderfully tranquil garden with lovely plants and flowers and the cool ocean breeze is refreshing, you can hear the ocean and birds chirping.~Rose from Moro Bay

Really enjoy the garden patio (and it is dog friendly!). It is a peaceful spot with the birds and fountains. Love the chicken salad sandwich on a croissant.~Julia D. from Santa Barbara CA
