This was our first time dining at The Summerland Beach Cafe. We were surprised by the quick, amicable service, and stunned by the delicious food! We each ordered the Miller Hotel Eggs Benedict Breakfast. I had forgotten the taste of buttery folds of Hollandaise sauce enrobing poached eggs fit for royalty! (We both agreed that Gordon Ramsey would be impressed!) In addition to our Eggs Benedict, we ordered one of the Summerland Beach Cafe's reknown hot chocolates. A mug the size of my face appeared at our table, throughly perfumed with a seasonally appropriate snowfall of cinnamon. Underneath a snow cap of whipped cream lie a creamy river of warm cocoa. There was something unique about the hot chocolate we just couldn't pick out until our waitress explained that the chocolate was a medley of both mexican, and dark chocolate mixes. When we finished our meal, we left the Summerland beach cafe satiated by the browned breakfast potatoes, perfected eggs, and warmed inside by the gracefully spiced cocoa. The next time you pass through Summerland, be sure not to miss this cafe as you drive by!
I'm addicted to this delicious crabby breakfast. I've tried many crab but, this is the Best. When in town, a must have!
Truly one of the tastiest lunch/brunch meals I've enjoyed! The tuna, croissant and curly fries knocked my socks off. Summerland offers the BEST food in Santa Barbara, for sure!
The staff was very friendly and fast service my first time going and will be returning I enjoyed it and food was a big quantity for the price and quality was delicious!
Cooked to perfection! a truly delicious, delectable meal from the first bite to the last!
DELICIOUS cinnamon roll! I have to get one "for the table" every time.
My hubs and I have been going here so many years and have always loved the people, food and location. Super stoked they have gluten free options! Food is always fresh and served with a smile. Hope to see them soon!
One of the best Bloody Marys I've had, best in SB TOP 3 and best deal for sure!!
So I've been coming here since the 1980's when it was still called The Omelette Parlour, and have various favorite dishes over the years. But for the last 10 years or so I've been mostly getting Engine Company No. 2 and asking for it "scrambled". It's just spicy enough and with the sharp cheddar cheese reminds me of my childhood having omelettes during a month in Brooklyn in the 1950's.
Outstanding!!!!!! Loved it!!!!
The best oatmeal ever!!!!! Love it with bananas and walnuts- Great healthy breakfast to start the day!!!!!🌞😎❣️
This place has been a favorite for so many years. My wife and I started a family custom bringing each of our five children here To start their birthday right enjoying a fantastic birthday breakfast.
I was very pleased with Summerland Cafe's service and food. Sierra was an excellent waitress. She took care of all our needs in a timely manner. I had the Two, Two and Two with Gluten free bread. It's been years since I've been able to eat French Toast. It was delicious and cooked just right. The bacon was just right. I got potatoes instead of eggs and they were perfect. The ambiance was cozy. I enjoyed the antique photography. There's something to enjoy everywhere you look. You can't go wrong with Summerland Cafe. As cafes go, it's a great choice.
When you want to step back in time and enjoy really, really great food in a charming venue the Summerland Beach Cafe is the place to go. Great food. Great staff. Great Service.
If you made me pick one, I'd have to go with the incredible May Lambert sandwich ... toasted to perfection on delicious bread, this fresh turkey and cheese, piled high, is unbeatable. And, with the choice of sides and a delicious big sliced pickle, you can't beat it. Then again, I have probably enjoyed every single item on the menu, at one time or another. The breakfasts are to die for, and you simply cannot go wrong for lunch, with breakfasts prepared at anytime. The service is terrific and there is a great vibe always present. Do yourself a favor and visit the Summerland Beach Cafe. And its dog-friendly environment on the patio makes it even more welcoming. You can't beat the ease of their takeout business, either, in these socially distanced times. It's fast, clean, and fun. And the jewel of Summerland.
This is by far the best hot chocolate I've ever had. Huge mug with a big dollop of whipped cream and the best chocolate flavor!
Good combo of everything so you don't have to choose just one :) Summerland beach cafe is the best and always hits the spot!
Excellent service, atmosphere and food!
The bacon here is the best I have had. Love the porch and the friendly service. This is our favorite place to eat breakfast. We had lunch and it was just as delicious.
I was very disappointed. I ordered this to go and be turned into a wrap and it was missing the ham!! What a let down.
LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT! BRAVO, SUMMERLAND!
The mahi was excellent -- very fresh, generous portion.
Love this breakfast, it's filling without being too much food for breakfast and it's delicious! I've had several different breakfast's here and they all worth writing home about.
Huge portions, perfectly cooked, never disappoints! I've been here, getting the salmon scramble and a mimosa, on my birthday for the last four years since I moved to SB. Can't beat it!
My favorite sandwich with the best curly fries! This place never disappoints! Great food and great people! We've been coming here for 28 years!
Huge portion, fresh and great flavor! Real good potato salad too!
Summerland Beach Cafe has the best food and best service of any restaurant. I routinely drive 2 hours on the weekend with my kids just to eat at Summerland. Thank you for all you do.
Delish!' Omelette and potatoes super tasty!! Awesome coffee. Super nice staff and great overall diner. Will definitely be coming Back here
Anything that either my husband and I order, no matter what, is delicious. The portions are good sized, they are sweet to our little dog, and the staff are always friendly and helpful! The amazing view is an added plus!
My husband and I happened upon the Summerland Beach Cafe about 20 years ago and have been frequenting there at least several times a year since. We've had countless omelettes, 2,2,2, salads, burgers, biscuits and gravy, eggs Benedict. It's all delicious! You can't beat the coming together of a charming, historic house, a great menu, and terrific staff! Don't miss this one!
Besides loving the name, this is what I order every year on my birthday! I love the addition of sausage in my omelette.
I've been passing the Summerland Beach Cafe while heading north for many years. I finally had the opportunity to stop by and check it out. What a pleasant surprise!!! Summerland Beach Cafe is a very charming and quaint historic home built in the 1800's. Their menu has a great selection, so I decided to order the Smoked Salmon Scramble. The flavor of the smoked salmon blended with the eggs and spices was the most amazing combination that you will crave again once you leave. You will want to make Summerland Beach Cafe a regular stop, and don't forget to experience the Smoked Salmon Scramble. I highly recommend it!!!
About six times a year, I make the trek from my home in San Juan Capistrano to the Central Coast for vacation. I leave at 8am to make sure that I'll arrive at my first stop for a great breakfast. I have never been disappointed with the service, the meal or the wonderful people I encounter at this amazing restaurant. In fact, I'll be there tomorrow for my favorite meal! Crabby Bills Benedict. Best ever!
The food here is excellent! On top of the burgers, we also had chili cheese fries. Also amazing! We ate in a little patio in the back, and then make the short drive to the beach across the freeway and had a fantastic day.
I love a good tuna melt and this one always satisfies. This place has the best food and great side options for the sandwiches too.
Love this sandwich. Great flavor and is best with a side of curly fries. Can't recommend this place more!
I had the buckwheat pancakes with caramelized bananas and walnuts, and they were AMAZING. Perfectly fluffy, great flavor, and a heaping serving for a good price (on the specials menu). Definitely worth a try!
Wonderful, with lots of tender turkey, bacon and cheese. Summerland Beach Cafe is one of our favorites for both breakfast and lunch, and we try to eat there (and now with takeout) several times a month. Staff is very friendly and helpful!
The breakfast and coffee are so good. The atmosphere is warm, friendly, and sophisticated! The staff pays attention to detail and they deliver a wonderful experience!
