Reader Steve H. is spreading the word that the former Spanish Garden Inn at 915 Garden Street has reopened as Palihouse Hotel, Café and Bar, described as an elegant coastal hideaway in the heart of Santa Barbara’s downtown Historic Presidio Neighborhood. The café is quietly open to the public from 8am to 3pm daily. I am told that there’s a nice garden patio in the interior courtyard with a gurgling fountain. The menu includes Morning Pastry, Banana Bread, Fruit Plate, Buttermilk Waffle, American Breakfast, Chilaquiles, Breakfast Burrito, Avocado, Smoked Mussels, Hummus & Pita, Cheese & Charcuterie Board, Palicobb Salad, Greek Salad, Cucumber Salad, Paliclub Sandwich, Fisher Sandwich, Chicken Quinoa Bowl, House Burger, Fettuccine, and desserts. Call (805) 564-4700.
