Thoughtless $$ sandwich, 1/26/2014
Reviewer: Charlotte from Goleta
Place was empty. Asked the counter person if the Reuben was toasted or grilled, she said grilled, which I told her was a must for me. For $7.95 I got a toasted "Reuben" on a Wonderbreadesque rye, 2 thin, chewy, grissley pieces of corned beef, hardly any saurkraut . I have never seen such a sad sandwich in my life and for $7.95!!! What a joke. When I told the counter person that the bread WAS toasted and not grilled and there just wasn't enough of anything in this sandwich and the quality if meat and bread was very poor. She responded with "oh, that's what it's supposed to look like". So this sandwich shop can't make one of the most classic sandwiches on Earth and they don't even know what grilled vs. toasted means! Wow!

stale bagel
Reviewer: cady from Santa Barbara, CA
i just got a lox bagel and the bagel was 100% stale. i used to work here years ago and the food was great. its obviously going downhill. the service was very good though.

Best Breakfast in Town
Reviewer: Jack from Santa Barbara, CA
There is too much hype about the Cajun Kitchen. I like this place much better than Cajun Kitchen; quieter atmosphere, nice food and attentive servers. I'd recommend this place to anyone.

Worst website ever
Reviewer: Beverly Wilkins from Santa Barbara, CA
Look at their website and you'll see why it gets my vote for worst website ever. Can't a girl just read a menu without floating s*** all over the place making the content COMPLETELY illegible? Too many other good sandwich places in town to put up with websites like this. No excuse: clean it up, Cafe Intl.

Not all changes are good
Reviewer: Chris from Santa Barbara, CA
Their potatoes are crunchy and yummy - right out of the bag, and the potatoes are always mediocre. Never great, never lousy. Just eggs. Used to be great coffee. New coffee is ordinary. Do you like dry croissants and cold coffee? They date the croissants in pen on the bottom of the plastic wrap but waitress said they will sell them up to five days old, mine still had two days to go! They never heard of "day old bread"? It's not a compliment! It was hard and dry in spite of the half a box of plastic wrap on it. I've been going there for years... I should have talked to one of the original wait staff - the new one was apologetic, but what I needed was a fresh croissant. They used to make awesome open face bagel sandwiches.... maybe I'll try one of those again one day. They have good music and I like the people. Never crowded. I do like the new "look."

horrible website
Reviewer: Jamie from Santa Barbara, CA
Wanted to order take out so I went to their website to take a look at the menu. I'm fairly computer savvy and this website is by far on my Top10 list of most annoying websites ever. You can't just read the menu, it shifts in bizarre directions making something that's suppose to be straight forward, a major pain. I know you probably wanted it to look "cool and cutting edge", but something simple truly is better. I'd be willing to go through the pain of navigating your site if the food was truly fantastic, but the food's nothing to rave about either.

good cheap breakfast
Reviewer: Lief Jacobson from Santa Barbara, CA
i went to cafe int'l for the first time today with my 2 sons and we all had a different "chicken sub" and a big side of ceasar salad for just a dollar. the total price for that and a soft drink was less than $30.00. we will definately be going back. they even take discount cards on weekdays. AWEASOME!

Expensive bad food
Reviewer: Dean from Santa Barbara, CA
This is the worst restaurant we have been to all year! They can't even make a salad right and have the nerve to charge $12 Stay away from this rip off place, even AM/PM makes better food sealed to go in a wrapper!

Good Food Friendly Service
Reviewer: Mary from Santa Barbara, CA
I frequently eat here. I enjoy the food.. so many items to select from.. Haven't been unhappy yet. Cheerful servers enjoy talking with them when it is slow which isn't often.

Breakfast place I guess? Lunch tastes like bacon
Reviewer: Christine from Santa Barbara, CA
$9 Chicken caesar salad - mostly dark green Romaine leaves which I appreciate. However, too much dressing and the chicken tastes like it was cooked on the same cooktop as the bacon and eggs were for breakfast! I won't be having this dish at Cafe Intl again.

Great breakfast bagel sandwich
Reviewer: Tyler C. from goleta, CA
This is a great breakfast place for us on the weekends, I've been tempted to try some of the lunch items, but haven't broken routine yet. We use to get the breakfast burritos, which were very good, but a little to big. So we downsized to the breakfast bagels, with eggs and stuff. I found it was the perfect amount to keep me going through the morning, Great employees, real friendly. This place has a great locale's feel. I've lived in Santa Barbara for 10+ and this is the only place which is a regular for my wife and I.

Excellent breakfast burrito
Reviewer: Jonathan from Santa Barbara, CA
I was looking for a breakfast burrito. For some reason every Mexican place stops serving breakfast at 11 or 11:30, even though the ingredients are almost all the same. Anyway, the breakfast burrito was very good. Almost all egg and breakfast meat, along with chili peppers, as opposed to cheap fillers like rice and potato. My only suggestion is that they wrap it when it is to go in paper or foil to make it easier to hold and eat.
