Reviews for The Shop Kitchen

This is a great place to go for Sunday brunch. The service was excellent and they follow clear safety protocols. Sitting outside was a nice experience. The food arrived quickly and was delicious. I'm not from the area, but the Shop Kitchen was worth the drive. My only issue was finding it from the street. They do not have a very prominent sign that catches the eye. But once you find it, you will see it was worth the effort.

Honestly not sure how this place has so many great reviews. It's an average brunch spot with average food. Dropped in on a Sunday at around 9:30 AM. I ordered the "like-a-tiger", which is an egg white omelette and a single biscuit. My friend ordered the tugboat with smoked salmon. THE GOOD - The biscuit was definitely the highlight. Nice and fluffy. It comes with honey butter (which is a nice idea but executed poorly with cubes of butter and only a tiny bit of honey) and full review
I have been to almost all the brunch/ breakfast spots in Santa Barbara if you can imagine haha, but unfortunately this place didn't hit the spot:( The aesthetics for everything here is an A+ but the food was lackluster in flavor and overall pretty mediocre. However, we did enjoy the Groupon that saved us money! If we didn't have the Groupon I would not have thought the food was worth it, but it sure did look pretty! If you have a SWEET tooth, I would recommend the french toast! full review
