Dana Cisneros, assistant to the General Manager at Cody’s Café, informed me that the restaurant is serving dinner once again. An alarm went off in my inbox in June from nearly a dozen readers who were mourning the loss of nightly dinner service at the popular restaurant at 4898 Hollister Avenue in Goleta. “We also no longer serve hard alcohol but we do have an excellent selection of beer and wine as well as we serve margaritas and bloody marys.,” says Cisneros. “We serve those drinks with a sake based tequila and vodka. Sabé Blanco is a blend of sake and tequila which is classified as a specialty wine and makes delicious cocktails.” Hours are: Sunday-Monday 6 a.m.-3 p.m. and Tuesday-Saturday: 6 a.m.-9 p.m. Thanks to reader Mel for the tip.

    I’m afraid that getting rid of their hard liquor license will be Cody’s death knell.

    I am not an expert on CA liquor laws but how can they serve margaritas and tequila and vodka without a liquor license? It is my understanding a liquor license can be sold for $75-100,000. I am sure this gave them quite a bit of operating capital.

    I was going to meet some out-of-town guests at Cody’s for dinner this past Sunday, and happened to arrive an hour early, and my friends turned out to be an hour late, so for 2 hours (while I waited for them to arrive so we could caravan to some place else for dinner) I was able to watch the comings and goings of _several_ carloads of people (~15-20) drive up, get out, read the hours on the front door, and walk back to their car full of family/friends while shaking their heads, shouting “No Sunday evening dinners!” I think Cody’s picked the wrong 2 days/week to be closed for dinner service.
