Goleta 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 highlighting Goleta, a diverse, small town nestled right next to Santa Barbara.


Breakfast at Oat Bakery

Start your day with a visit to Oat Bakery, a spot beloved for its health-conscious and innovative approach to baking. The Scandinavian bakery crafts its dishes using organic and locally sourced ingredients and offers a variety of vegan and gluten-free options as well. Located in the heart of the quaint Old Town Goleta district, Oat Bakery’s wide selection of handmade specialty breads, rolls, toasts, and pastries paired with a hot cup of drip coffee makes for a nutritious and wholesome breakfast.

Their menu includes fish tacos and crispy fish featuring freshly caught local seafood, as well as hearty burgers, sandwiches and salads.
