I walked here from my Airbnb for coffee several times. The selection is great and I was never disappointed. I wanted to try the food but was never hungry while there.

Friends from Santa Barbara rave about The Daily Grind, but I wasn't blown away. I stopped in for an expresso coffee and a smoothie - both were a pass, but nothing extraordinary (maybe my expectations were set too high). I wouldn't go out of my...More

Whenever we go to visit family in Santa Barbara, we always stop here for coffee/breakfast/lunch or a combination. They have a variety of coffees, great pastries, sandwiches, smoothies...something for everyone. The staff is very friendly and they have plenty of outdoor/indoor seating.

Good food for a reasonable price. Recommend for everyone who just want to have a small sandwich rather than a full lunch.

The staff is wonderful. The food is exceptional and the coffee is the best in town. It is a relaxing pet friendly coffee shop.

Looking for a light dinner. Found sandwich place nearby. I hate to say Subway makes a better sandwich and they are not so good. Sandwich was okay. Good value.

Been here numerous times while visiting friends. Delicious bagel sandwiches and a selection of brewed coffees to try. Quick, convenient, tasty, and easy on the pocketbook - you can't go wrong.

This place is everything you'd want a coffee house to be; a little funky, a great selection of coffees and specialty drinks, and a wonderful inventory of pastries and breads to start the day with. Seating is both in and outdoor, and there is plenty...More
