Perched right on the sand at Leadbetter Beach—west of Stearns Wharf and a hop across the street from Santa Barbara City College—Shoreline Beach Cafe is where hungry beach goers and the happy hour cocktail crowd meet. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the cafe is a sunny spot to sip a cool drink with your toes in the sand, while the kiddies are happy playing on the beach (running back and forth for handfuls of fries). Happy hour is popular for sunset seekers or to simply sit back and watch the stand-up paddle boarders, boats, and waves rolling into shore.
