The food would have been even better if they had brought it to or table when it was ready. Instead, it sat in a bag on the counter, because they misunderstood and thought we wanted it to go. They were friendly about fixing the mistake, but we had waited over 30min. They offered nothing as compensation, they were going to bring me some fresh toast since my omelet had been sitting for so long, but they never brought it to the table. Food was excellent. The service could be improved.

This place has the best pastries and French food in town. He studied there and it shows. Genuine French food without pretense.

We were in Santa Barbara for a week, staying at the Pepper Tree Motel. Not far from the motel we found the State Street location of Renaud’s bakery. We enjoyed their breakfast, sometimes sharing their 3 egg omelette with potatoes and delicious multi-grain bread. The coffee, the hot chocolate, a whole case of pastries, cakes and cookies. . . there is something here for every taste!

We stopped in last week for a mid afternoon treat at the Upper State Street Renaud's and were so delighted with the pastry and beverage selections. This was our first time in and were guests of friends who live in Santa Barbara. Although there were so many choices of delicious looking pastries, I chose a chocolate chip, coconut, and nut cookie and my husband chose a plain croissant. We are still raving about both treats as they were probably the best cookie and croissant we'd ever had. The next time we are in town, I'd like to try their breakfast or lunch items, too as everything looked scrumptious.
