The owners are also the cooks and waiters and the product is straight out of a Paris bistro. Excellent pastries and coffee. No bathroom on site but there is a service station across the street.

Handlebar is really cool and brings a touch of urban trendy to Santa Barbara. An eclectic and creative clientele gives this place a cool vibe. Its local and the coffee is very good.

Is this the best coffee within the greater central coast area? Probably! The coffee is excellent and the crowds told you that the locals thought so too. Highly recommeded for anyone who likes and values good coffee.

Was on the PCH and decided to detour here for lunch. Not much of a lunch option unless you go to their neighbor for sandwiches. But the latte here was awesome. Had enough of the caffeine kick to keep us going. But the sugar from...More
