NileGuide Expert tip:
The cafe fills up by 9 am on weekends, so get there early to nab a seat outside. Jeanine's Strawberry White Chocolate cake is out of this world—treat yourself to a slice or buy an entire cake for a special occasion.
For 25 years, the Hardey family and their staff has dished up savory breakfasts and sweet confections at Jeanine's American Bakery. On any given weekend, you'll find the quaint Coast Village Road location packed with locals enjoying long brunches. With strong Northwest Stumptown Coffee and extensive breakfast offerings on the menu, you won't find a better spot for brunch in Montecito. Make sure to arrive early, there are often long lines and the small cafe fills up quickly. Prices are moderate to high, but the portions are hearty and easy to share. If you've got a sweet tooth, you simply must try a Jeanine's Cake—by the slice or an entire cake to share with friends. Lunch is available as well—Turkey Berry, Chicken Pesto, and BLT sandwiches are tasty—and pre-made salads are a fresh and easy to grab on the run.
