A new cafe named Peebee & Jay’s opened last Wednesday at 1007 Casitas Pass Rd in Carpinteria, the former home of Caje. I first mentioned their pending arrival in this blog on October 27th of last year. Peebee & Jay’s was founded by Jessica Pintard, owner of Corktree Cellars Wine Bar & Bistro on Linden Ave in Carpinteria. I asked Jessica why she started her new gourmet soup, salad and sandwich shop and she tells me “I’m tired of going to Santa Barbara for a good sandwich!”
Peebee & Jay’s offers 20 different sandwiches that come with soup from a recipe they make themselves. You can build your own sandwich as well. They offer 9 different salads, 2 soups every day (one is always vegetarian) and they get fresh bread daily from local bakeries. Everything on the menu is under $10.
I asked Jessica if there is a particular sandwich she would recommend and she suggested the “Chicken Dressed Up Like A Salad.” It comes with spiced chicken, avocado, bacon, gorgonzola spread, sliced hard-boiled egg, french-fried onion, ranch dressing, lettuce, tomato and balsamic rosemary bread.
Peebee & Jay’s is open 7 days a week from 10am to 4pm. For more information call (805) 220-6912.
