Santa Barbara Independent writer Callie Fausey reports that South Coast Deli at 1436 Chapala Street, which opened in February 2008, closed January 20th because the landlord did not renew their lease. “At this point we want to focus on the positive,” says South Coast Deli owners Jim and Darlene St. John. “We have three other successful locations in town and we look forward to focusing our efforts on them. Delivery will still be available via DoorDash, and we will continue to deliver our Sammie platters to offices throughout the city. We have had 15 wonderful years at SCD Chapala and are thankful for all the support from the community.” South Coast Deli at 6521 Pardall Road closed in April 2021 and a new location opened the same month at 3534 State Street.
