Santa Barbara has a number of yummy eateries to tempt your tastebuds. It can get a little pricey if you're not careful, but that's what you get in an upscale resort-ish town like SB. For a European-style cafe experience, try Andersen's on State Street, Santa Barbara's main drag. It's a Danish bakery and restaurant/cafe that serves some crazy-good pastries and some fine cafe fare.
Check out these pastries. Just looking at their offerings can get your mouth watering. One local favorite is their apple strudel, but these French waffles really caught my eye.
I was there for breakfast, and I noticed a croissant French toast on the menu. Oh yeah, I HAD to try that! It was delicious, and looked great too. The fresh berries really took it over the top.
And not only do they make the perfect looking cappucino, but their cafe mocha is some serious chocolaty goodness.
Andersen's is at 1106 State Street in Santa Barbara and on the web at andersenssantabarbara.com.
