The BEST Breakfast in Santa Barbara!

Come for the fun... stay for the bacon.

The Summerland Beach Café is located just 3 miles south of Santa Barbara in the charming seaside town of Summerland! Locally owned and operated since 1981, this rustic and charming restaurant (and dog friendly too) is just a block from the beach. The Summerland Beach Café features home-style cooking and a friendly, attentive staff all in a cozy, Victorian era home.

Enjoy breakfast or lunch indoors, on the back patio nestled in a wooded setting or on the front porch overlooking downtown Summerland.


The Summerland Beach Café Victorian house, originally built in 1893, is a favorite hot spot for Hollywood celebrities, Presidents and Santa Barbara locals! SBC is a Porsche Owner Club sponsor.


Breakfast and lunch served all day! Savor eggs benedict, sugar-cured thick-cut bacon, light and delicate Belgian waffles, our famous three-egg omelette or a juicy burger or delicious salad for lunch.


What better way to dine in an 1893 Victorian beach house than to read up on Table Manners and Etiquette of the 19th Century! Ask for a copy of the most admired page of our menu to take home.
