Carpinteria Restaurant Guide

Santa Barbara is home to a variety of exceptional restaurants, each one bringing their own unique flavors, ingredients, and ambiance. Every week this April, we will showcase a different Santa Barbara neighborhood by creating a guide to the excellent restaurants they have to offer. This week we will be showcasing Carpinteria, a beautiful town just south of Santa Barbara known for its laid-back charm and stunning coastline.

Lucky Llama is much more than just a coffee shop. It's a vibrant community hub where locals and visitors alike come to enjoy a fantastic cup of coffee, freshly made smoothies, and a variety of breakfast bowls and pastries. The atmosphere is eclectic and welcoming, with plenty of outdoor seating to enjoy the sunny Carpinteria weather. Don't miss their acai bowls, loaded with fresh fruits, and their expertly crafted espresso drinks, perfect to start the day. 


Lunch at Zookers

Continue for lunch at Zookers, a family-owned restaurant that's dedicated to creating dishes that are as pleasing to the palate as they are wholesome. From the salads and sandwiches to the main entrees, all dishes are made with ingredients sourced from local farms. The menu offers a wide array of options that vary with seasonal menus and daily chef specials. The relaxed ambiance and friendly service make Zookers an ideal spot for a leisurely lunch with friends or family.
