A great day at the beach can start with an amazing breakfast and cup of coffee, or finish with a delicious lunch from a local café. When you’re ready to pause the sightseeing and grab a beverage or a snack, make sure to put these charming coffee shops in Santa Barbara on your itinerary!

Handlebar Coffee Roasters

128 E Canon Perdido St, Santa Barbara, CA 93101
(719) 201-3931
7 AM to 5 PM Daily

Terrific for kicking off a day of exploring downtown Santa Barbara or heading to the beach, this coffeeshop was founded by two former professional cyclists that settled down in Santa Barbara after years of traveling and even racing in Europe! The coffee shop has a modern and laid-back feel that perfectly captures the Santa Barbara vibe. There’s a small breakfast menu that includes options like granola and yogurt, avocado toast, and huevos de la vina, organic eggs and arugula served on char-grilled sourdough bread. Handlebar roasts their beans weekly, with sources from Central and South America, and Africa.

Jeannine’s Bakery

15 E Figueroa St, Santa Barbara, CA 93101-2781
(805)-966-1717

The first thing you might notice about Jeannine’s is the stylish indoor space, but we’re certain after trying some of their delectable menu items you’ll leave with memories of the food occupying your mind! Serving up gourmet breakfast dishes, sandwiches, and salads there’s something on the menu for everyone, whether you’re looking for a lighter fare or something indulgent like the Banana Kahlua French Toast. Make sure to grab a seat on their adorable patio if the weather permits, with ivy covered walls and a design style that will make you feel like you’re sitting outside a European street café.

They also feature a breakfast sandwich, omelet, and Quiche Du Jour that can be found on both the breakfast and lunch menus. In addition to fresh soups, salads, and sandwiches, you can finish your visit with one of their colorful and house-made desserts.
