Most Scenic route to Solvang and...

What are some good places to have breakfast on the way to Solvang that are equally scenic? I'm planning a daytrip on Sunday, and we will be driving from Los Angeles, to Solvang and then further out to the Chumash Casino, and then back thru. So some recommendations for scenic places for dinner would be helpful as well.

For the ultimate in brunches, go to the Biltmore in Montecito across the street from the serene Butterfly Beach. Or in Santa Barbara, there is a great local casual grill almost on the sand at East Beach (East Beach Grill at 1118 E Cabrillo Blvd 805-965-8805)- you can watch the people cruising by on the bike path or gaze out onto the blue pacific as you eat your simple, but delicious, breakfast.

For dinner on your way home, go to either the wharf in SB (3 restaurants to choose from) or a great place is Brophie's in the SB harbor looking over the boats and water with the mountains in the distance. If you get stuck at the casino, they have a first-class restauraunt on the property called The Willows. And just in case, be forewarned - the traffic back through SB on Sunday afternoon is gridlock, so either go home early, stay late, or stay for the night.

Hope that helps....
