Around Town: Jeannine’s, Santa Barbara

During my long weekend drive up the northern coast, I made a stop in Santa Barbara for the morning. Since I am a breakfast person, it was important to find a place that served a breakfast for champions, especially since I had a long drive ahead of me. Jeannine’s Restaurant is a favorite among locals, which was clear after observing many customers saying hello to one another by their first names. Jeannine’s is a charming place to eat, and the food definitely made the visit worth it.
