I met with owner Meichelle Arntz who tells me she hopes to open Recipes Bakery and Gifts at 604 Santa Barbara St. this Thursday or Friday, if the business passes all necessary inspections. Recipes offers cinnamon rolls, orange rolls, chocolate rolls, cookies, pie, bread, brownies, muffin, coffee and a breakfast menu. Recipes also sells deluxe hand-made gift baskets filled with fresh baked goods, cheese from C’est Cheese and more. For more information call 805-965-3335 or visit

    Did this place open yet? I want to try a cinnamon roll!

  4. I’ve watched the progress on Recipes as I drive that section of Santa Barbara Street often. I was excited to see that Recipes is now open. The interior is super, bright and inviting. My friend and I shared a couple of scones and had decaf lattes. The food is good and I can’t wait to go back and try their other products.
