Santa Barbara Love

Oh, Santa Barbara- let me count the ways. 

It’s been nearly three years since I’ve visited the paradise I once called home- a place I lived and played for five years before returning to the east coast, to build a life in Connecticut. 

While I love our life in the New England haven where my husband and I both grew up, I will always have a soft spot for sunny California; and, in my opinion, Santa Barbara is its shining star.

Here's a list of what we've seen this week- a few of my very favorite stops to eat, see, and shop:

EAT

Jeannine's Restaurant and Bakery

My go-to breakfast spot- as both a local and a "tourist." Delicious lattes, great outdoor seating + the yummiest French toast.

Coral Casino Beach and Cabana Club

This west coast version of a country club is a true gem- get to know someone that's a member or book a room at the Four Seasons SB to enjoy a day at the pool by the sea.

Cava Restaurant and Bar

One of our first stops every trip- because you just can't get good Mexican food in CT.
