As someone who has an opinion or two regarding espresso and what constitutes the best espresso macchiato - I can't recommend this place highly enough. Exceptional coffee, service and experience. Charming too!

This is a perfect place to sit with friends, have a coffee and just enjoy being in Santa Barbara. The coffee is amazing, the service is wonderful and the atmosphere is exactly what you hope in a coffee shop. Nothing is rushed. A true local treasure.

We stopped in for coffee and a pastry. The place was busy but relaxed. The coffee was good and everyone there seemed to enjoy helping us.

We were in town visiting for our anniversary and enjoy trying local coffee haunts. This one was a true gem!

A great place to meet bikers in weekends. Perfect place to go after a nice bike ride on Sunday morning. The coffee has no bitter taste. The roasting flavor is just right.

We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon coffee break at the Handlebar. A great change of pace from Starbucks and worth the short block walk from State Street. Great vibe. Quaint inside seating and lovely outdoor seating with big umbrellas and a soft breeze. My wife's vanilla chai tea was the best she's ever had. We will come here again.

Thank NavyDave1
