Reviews by the General Public

Great food, service and patio
Reviewer: Leilani from Santa Barbara
The food at Cafe S, as I fondly call it, is wonderful! Homemade, tasteful and seemingly healthy without a grainy healthy taste, if you know what I mean! The patio is lovely; lots of foliage, small fountain and comfortable tables. My favorites: Sonrisas salad, tortilla soup, cookies and the lovely and reasonable prices jewelry one of the owners sells. It's really got everything you would want. TRY IT AND SEE. :-)


Great, fresh food!
Reviewer: Michelle Greene from Goleta, CA
The food at Cafe Sonrisas is always fresh and homemade. The staff are extremely courteous and friendly. Most days they are fast, it is best to call ahead for to go orders during the busy weekday lunch hour. The cosy interior seating is nice, and the patio seating is perfect for sunny afternoons. Their made from scratch chicken tortilla soup is a favorite.


best date EVER!

My boyfriend took me here for our first date, and it was the cutest cafe EVER! all dishes are extremely fresh and such a comfortable and warm atmosphere!!


Best burger I've tasted
Reviewer: Scott from Santa Barbara, CA
I'm not one to write reviews for these places but I've been on a continuous search to find the best tasting burger and so far this place is at the top of my list. The avocado and bacon burger is, and I say this with no doubts, the best burger I've had. Perfectly seasoned and garnished and juicy. Writing this is making me crave one. I really hope that this place will be there for awhile as I have no clue where else I could get such a good burger.


Excellent Cafe/Deli
Reviewer: JoJo Hernandez from Goleta, CA
Wonderful little cafe/deli restaurant. Great friendly service. They made me feel right at home the moment I walked in. The food is fresh and very well prepared. I truly enjoyed the turkey sandwich that I ordered. Great little quaint deli restaurant. Take a lunch visit sometime, you won't be dissapointed.


The Best Little Spot In SB area
Reviewer: Jerry Hernandez from Montecito, California
For breakfast or lunch, with a cozy dining area that feels like it could belong to anyone´s mother, and a patio in the back for the sunny days. Cafe Sonrisas shines in excellent food, service, and atmosphere. Try the Tortilla soup, or one of the sandwiches. It is in Goleta and is worth the drive from Montecito. I am going to meet a friend there today!


Best burger in town

The angus beef burger served with avocado and bacon is amazing--and reasonably priced. Everything they serve is good quality--from the iced tea and coffee to the bread and vegetables. The owners, Maggie and Sylvia, are friendly and remember your name. The breakfast burrito is excellent, too.


Nice new cafe

Other purveyors of breakfast & lunch meals have come and gone from this site; now we have Cafe Sonrisas. The location still has its very nice back garden with patio-style tables and chairs, and a pleasant cafe-style interior decor (including a nice little fireplace). The Sunday Brunch menu we sampled was good, if quite ordinary; the weekday breakfast and lunch menu, posted on a chalkboard arrangement behind the order counter, looks much the same. However, it´s good to have a restaurant conveniently located directly across from the Patterson/Hollister medical complex.
