Consistantly good food – The Paradise Cafe has been a Santa Barbara fixture for one reason. Good food, reasonably priced with a menu that shows the owners know what they are doing.
Sunny Sunday, on the veranda at Paradise. While the wait staff and hostess are California Careless the back of the house rocks! The burger was flavorful, cooked to a proper medium (pink line center) with hot shoestring fries. And my companion's bacon stuffed waffles disappeared with gusto. Our entres were under $10 each so compared to most Santa Barbara restaurants the Paradise says good value.
Unfortunately the service was typical California Careless.; it's hard to find good help I know. But a little training can go a long way when added to having servers who smile naturally. Don't let that deter you from a good meal - there are lots and lots of worse places when it comes to service.
disaster – The food is OK, although some had to be sent back to reheat. The service set a new standard for terrible. Multiple apologies were followed by more forgotten requests; the food arrived at random over a period of nearly an hour. My advice: go somewhere that values its customers.
Yummy Salad – Their cobb salad is the best! Yummy and the patio is fun for a fairly large gathering.
