“Excellent food away from the tourist crowd.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2012

We had breakfast after a weekend of wine tasting... wonderful food, attentive, fast service. No wait, unlike the touristy pancake places in the area... obviously a local hangout. We will be back!

“A Tasty Meal at a Fair Price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2012

I am a regular patron of Mother Hubbard's Restaurant. The staff know me and I feel welcome me when I visit. I like to go for breakfasts, but the rest of their menu is very good too. They have a few early-bird breakfast selections. My favorite is their back and eggs. For $8 and change you get one egg, two thick pieces of bacon, toast or biscuits and coffee; just the right amount of food, for a good price. My husband enjoys their Farmer Bob omelet [ham and eggs and hash browns with toast]. They have a tasty homemade chili and good sandwiches and dinner selections. Mother Hubbard's has been offering special selections with produce grown locally. I appreciate their creativity and their endeavor to give their patrons a tasty meal at a fair price. If you visit regularly, don't forget to join their birthday club. You will get a free meal on your birthday every year.

“Worth Driving too!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2011

We drive the extra distance from Lompoc to get Mother Hubbard's delicious homestyle food. They have a large selection of items and we have been happy with everything we have tried. The portions are large and they have great tasting iced tea. The service is friendly and they deliver their lunches quite quickly. We went there for breakfast one time and did have to wait 30 minutes but they were really busy. I'd certainly recommend them for lunch, you won't be disappointed.

“There is more than pea soup in Buellton, Ca.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 December 2011

Christmas Eve bunch at Mother Hubbard's in Buellton, Ca. was a delightful surprise. Home to the famous Anderson's Pea Soup, Buellton visitors may need to extend their taste buds for home cooking at Mother Hubbard's. The menu , service and food does not disappoint if you want a yummy, homecooked breakfast. My fav is their wide omellete selections of fresh spinach, feta cheese, ham chunks, peppers and cherry tomatoes..
