Aint what it used to be

Ownership change a short while back and now its coming close to 7/11 los olivos style. The slushie machines have moved in and a real trailer trash fountain that no one would ever put in their front yard "graces" the exterior of this once very special place. A real shame.
Gourmet store serving Los Olivos area
Not a lot more to add over previous review, you can get a lot here on the gourmet side( wine/cheeses/fruit/meats). They also have a cafe here that serves bfast in the morning until about 12:00 with table service and then switches to lunch fare afterwards with order(in the back of the store) and take back to front cafe area yourself service. They don't stock the average grocery store items. A bit south of Los Olivos on the 154 south side next to Dunn school. Food was good.
upscale food, friendly local service

This is a great little shop to stop in for a snack or picnic provisions. Their products tend on the gourmet side, with a similar gourmet pricetag, but their selection is admirable. I have picked up very delicious cheeses, olives and meats to go with artisan breads and fresh fruit. They have a generous covered seating area near the entrance of the store and it is a very pleasant place to linger and eat at if you want to escape the noise of weekend winetasters in Los Olivos' main street.
Incidentally, John Cleese's Wine for the Confused documentary highlights this shop, hinting that some unnamed wine bargains can be had here.
Kudos go to the staff for putting up with all us winos. And they have proven to be very concerned for their customer's welfare - we got carded for buying bottles of root "beer!"
Best Breakfast in SB county
from Santa Barbara, ca
The first time we went here was on a recomendation the morning of our wedding party at a local Winery. Since then we routinly drive from Santa Barbara to have breakfast there ( get up early, they stop serving breakfast at around 11:00am). We usually get the Breakfast Burritos with thier fantastic salsa, How do they do it? So unlike most of the Breakfast Burritos in SB which taste like cardboard even after you add the salsa. They also seem to have figured out how to make great coffee. I just wish that they were closer.
