the drink menu is huuuuuge and very sweet. The lychee martini isnt better than osha's but it's still worth it. They used to do open mics there 2 years ago, but now theyre newly revonated and the place has a different feel. still excellent food
One of the busiest places on Haight Street and unfortunately not open for dinner, the pork store cafe has been one of the local favorites since it had opened. Fresh, greasy food!
stacks and stacks of pancakes! go there on brunch with your friends. the portions are huge like the stacked salads. they're always packed around here so be ready to stand in line
from the two story building, watch a foreign movie on a posted screen while dining familty style with your friends and family. They have foreign movies weekly to entertain you
if you are in the mood for soul food and are in the city, you should try farmerbrown. they have the bet cornbread that comes with the meals. and you'll definitely like the cool refreshing flavor of the cucumber water they serve.
if you are every in hawaii, you have to try zippy's fast food. it's hawaiian food on the go. and you must try their famous chilli. it is the best chilli i've ever tasted.
walking along the streets of down town santa barbara you can't miss this store. they have such a variety of beads you don't know what to look at first. the store is small but they have beads all over the place. if you are into bead work or making jewelry this is the place to go.
when i lived in santa barbara i wasn't really into scrapbooking as i am now, but i still visited the store. they have a lot to choose from and they offer classes too. so if you are just a beginner you might want to look into the classes.
i don't know what the other reviews are talking about. it maybe because i have had GREAT japanese food for much better prices living in san francisco and that i've experienced more. but, the food here is good, but i don't think it's spectacular. and the prices are way too high for what it is. but, like i said it may be that i'm used to the places here in the city that are much better and cheaper.
when i was in college everyone would rant and rave about freebirds. i lived next door at one point and it was open 24hours so of course i ate there, but i wanted to have authentic mexican food like iwas used to at home. i decided to try rosarito, it was authentic. the prices were right and the food was good. definitely hit the spot.
