Brunch at Scarlett Begonia
Scarlett Begonia is my favorite brunch spot to date in Santa Barbara. It's a quaint and hidden gem inside a courtyard off Santa Barbara's popular State Street. The menu here changes weekly to offer the freshest locally sourced ingredients, so everything is super fresh and innovative. On my last visit, we tried the biscuit sampler with the maple bacon and buttermilk biscuits, and the summer squash scramble. Everything was absolutely delicious! Definitely add this to your list next time you visit Santa Barbara.
Valentine's Day is coming up, so I've collected a few romantic weekend getaway ideas for you. The 3 locations below are perfect places to relax and unwind for a short trip from Los Angeles whether you want to wine taste, star gaze, or hang out poolside.
Santa Barbara is a quick two hour drive from L.A.. Better yet, you can take the Surfliner, a train that goes through a lot of California’s major coastal cities. The Pacific Surfliner drops you off in Santa Barbara’s Funk Zone, a wino’s dream.
