Cozy up for a coffee – or beer – and bite at this popular roasting spot. If you like really good coffee (and you don't mind lines), head to Handlebar for locally roasted beans and some delicious pastries and small plates. This coffee shop has it all: in-house roasting, a sunny patio and even beer on tap! Hungry? Be sure to try the housemade donuts. More like a very delicate sugar bun that's been filled with goodness like peaches and cream or zesty lemon fluff. Flavors vary daily. Handlebar also serves some of the most photogenic avocado toast, fully loaded, topped with a soft-boiled egg and sprinkled with pomegranate seeds. The parking lot is disproportionately small given the popularity of this place, so be on the lookout for street parking as you near the building.
- Recommended as Best Restaurants for Fall Because: Fall and hot beverages go hand in hand. Handlebar serves some of the tastiest coffee in Santa Barbara. They have great breakfast options too!
- Best for New and Popular Restaurants Because: Locally roasted beans, housemade pastries and beer on draft makes Handlebar a popular neighborhood destination.
