Restaurants Near Downtown in Santa Barbara


  • American
  • Californian
  • With restaurants that specialize in everything from Italian to Southern comfort, French fare to Wine country cuisine, epicurean offerings are a Santa Barbara staple. In the heart of town, State Street is home to a number of cozy eateries, while quieter spots a few blocks off of State manage to offer an off the beaten path experience. Palazzio and Tupelo Junction Café offer hearty helpings of Italian and southern grub, respectively. You might have to loosen your belt after dining at either of these family-friendly establishments. The Hungry Cat is the spot for fresh fish dishes, while Wine Cask and bouchon are known for regional varietals and locally sourced wine country fare. For a little entertainment with dinner, head to Cafe Buenos Aires, SoHo Restaurant and Music Club, and Brewhouse, where you'll always find live music... and if you're lucky, some dancing. Paradise Cafe and Sojourner Cafe are both located downtown and frequented by locals. Paradise serves up a mean burger and fresh salads, while Sojourner whips up local and organic eats-including sweets that taste too decadent to be vegan.
