We were looking for a great breakfast place in Santa Barbara, and our server at The Lark suggested we check out Jeannine’s — specifically their French toast. They have several locations, but we went to the original location in Montecito. It’s a super cute shopping area, and a perfect spot to enjoy brunch outside.
Jeannine’s has beautiful flowers and al fresco dinning. We found a spot and ordered the Eggs Norwegian with smoked salmon, poached egg, cucumbers, tomatoes, capers, and house-made hollandaise sauce. Of course, we also tried their famous French Toast, and it was delicious! We were both surprised that it wasn’t as sweet as we expected, it was just really flavorful.
