The popular Worker Bee Café at 973 Linden Avenue in Carpinteria now has a sister location at 5599 Hollister Avenue in Goleta, the former home of Sage & Onion Café, XO coffee shop and The Deli Planet. Sage & Onion Café closed last July. “If people know of us from Carpinteria it’s basically the same principle,” says co-owner Rick Mancilla. “We still do almost everything in house. Everything is made to order, everything is fresh. There are a couple of small differences in the menu from the Carpinteria location. All our specialties came over, but we don’t have the custom omelets and scrambles.” Unlike Carpinteria restaurant where the coffee options are regular or decaf, the new Goleta location has all the popular drink styles. On the breakfast menu specialty items include Homemade Corned Beef Hash, Worker Benedict, Potato Skin Hash, Grilled Biscuits & gravy, Breakfast Burrito with Homemade Salsa, Breakfast Croissant and Lox & Toast. Also available is French Toast, Pancakes, Waffles, Oatmeal, Grits, two eggs any style, Bacon/Sausage, Ham Steak, Chicken Fried Steak, Grilled Chicken Breast and Slices Tri Tip. The lunch menu includes a variety of cold sandwiches, grilled sandwiches and salads. Mancilla and a business partner purchased the restaurant in Carpinteria five years ago and started the expansion to Goleta earlier this year. The tables at the Goleta location have with a chalkboard finish so kids and can dine and draw. Currently when you drive by The Worker Bee Café II you might not see a large sign for the business as might be expected. Mancilla is waiting for owners of the Kellogg Square, where his restaurant is located, to complete a new, formal sign guidelines program that will apply to all tenants. Hours are 7 a.m. – 3 p.m. daily.
