Reviews by the General Public

Good, very wide menu, 5/20/2015
Reviewer: Jonathan from Santa Barbara, CA
I had lunch there today and had the bulgogi salad. Apparently they have added some Korean dishes. The meal was good. The counter service was nice and efficient. I guess they have cleaned up their act compared to when all the negative reviews were written.

Pick somewhere else!
Reviewer: Nicole from Santa Barbara, CA
I used to love Cafe Int'l, but for the last year the quality of food and service has gone down hill. The eggs are very greasy, although the home potatoes are still pretty good. The real issue I have is service. I went there today and was given the wrong order. Not only was it the wrong order, but it was ice cold. I expect more when I am paying for food.

try the bulgogi dishes
Reviewer: chris from Santa Barbara, CA
We tried the new Korean bulgogi dishes - a sandwich and a salad - and found both very nice. The beef marinated in a sweet soy-based sauce is tender and tasty, so it works as a protein addition for an otherwise pedestrian salad, or as the star of a really tasty sandwich on crispy French roll with veg and sauce which came with a side dish. (We'll do the sandwich again.) They have other bulgogi offerings to try. Counter service was quick and friendly with food delivered to table. $8-9 and Axxess accepted.

Not worth it

Ordered a tuna stuffed avocado. So what I got was some basic romaine lettce with some faded out tasteless tomatoes, some tuna salad with a small amount of cubed avocado underneath it. What a rip off. For $9.00?? They should not advertise it as a stuffed avocado.Never again will I go there.Nope!!!

Thoughtless $$ sandwich
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!
