Breakfast was outstanding. Lemon ricotta pancakes were fluffy and delicious, yet filling w ricotta. Lemony deliciousness. Ordered side of bacon- how could it be thick, juicy, meaty, fatty yet still crisp?! They found a way. Porky heaven and not overly smokey. Perfect!

Amazing brunch! This inviting courtyard serves local fresh organic produce! And they bake their own bread every morning! Delicious. I enjoyed the biscuit sampler! And the salmon dish is just stunning!

This is no ordinary breakfast, this is a dining experience that will wow you! Everything is perfectly prepared, served and presented — and the unexpected little extras are a delightful surprise: like a gorgeous little amuse-bouche of homemade granola and yoghurt to start; a freshly-baked...More

Scarlett Begonia is a cute place in the middle of courtyards off of State Street in Santa Barbara. We had brunch here and were seated quickly despite it being fairly busy. The space we were seated in was fairly small and very early on, the...More
