South Coast Deli is our number 1 because it is right on the other side of the school. The food is really delicious and worth the prices they charge. If you are in a rush, you can call them to pre-order your food. Also all the employees are very kind and friendly. Worth trying it.

You will find California Pasta right on the left side when you are entering Paseo Nuevo on State Street. The cool part at CP is that you get a 10% discount as an EF student. California Pasta has some of the best pasta in Santa Barbara. If you are a pasta lover, you definitely have to check this place out!


The location of Eureka is easy to find. Just walk down Chapala Street and there it is on the left side. This restaurant also has a bar, which is awesome for those who like to drink and watch a game on the screen. Eureka has different kinds of food, which should definitely match your taste.


As the name itself says, it is a bar, but also a restaurant. They do offer special deals at different times of the day. If you are sitting outside they have heaters, which are shaped like a pyramid with flames in the center. Sandbar is a nice place with an amazing atmosphere. This place is on the left side on State Street, toward the beach.
