Breakfast and other recommendations for Santa Barbara

Well there really are so many great places to eat in SB as it is a melting pot for fresh California Cuisine. My Favorite Breakfast place is on the Mesa... its called Mesa Cafe... and The best Brunch ever is at the Biltmore.

And for Sushi... as everyone has stated... Arigato is the best... fun atmosphere right on State Street.

Los Arroyos is a great place for authentic fresh mexican food.
