Our wonderful wedding planner met us here for the first time - his excellent taste in coffee may have helped seal the deal. One of their locations is across the street from the oldest part of town, The Presidio State Park, where the Spanish settled back in 1782. Grab a cup and walk around the gorgeous downtown!
In the Funk Zone - a fun part of Santa Barbara with lots to eat and drink. Lama Dog + Topa Topa are two breweries / bars connected in a larger buidling. Topa Topa has good beer and next door, Lama Dog, has a beer and wine selection. We've been told to try the Kombucha beer at Lama Dog.
Mexican restaurant with a fun vibe and delicious and inventive cocktails. As big fans of tequila and mezcal, especially when made spicy, we highly recommend this spot!
After Sahil (Sonal's younger brother's) graduation, Sonal joined her brother and friends to celebrate with a drink here and now wants to extend the stay after the wedding for a day or two in this beautiful location. They make some amazing drinks with a gorgeous view right on the water.
Very cool spot with a pretty industrial feel in the Funk Zone, and pretty looking and yummy tasting cocktails. They also have a great wine list and food.
