I bought a tasty cake for a coworkers anniversary. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The cake was ready at the pickup time. Try them for an office party.

I love this place. Delicious quiche and baked goods as well as great coffee. It's perfect for breakfast or brunch or just for coffee and something sweet. The gluten free items are really good!

This place is a treat. The desserts are beautiful and you would never know that they are gluten free, or vegan or in any way different than any other dessert spot. We love it!

Lilacs has a wonderful selection of delicious foods and desserts. My friend has celiac's and we go whenever she visits. I don't have celiacs and go there to have lunch with local friends. Great food, atmosphere, and service.

Finally! A place where I can order anything I want on the menu! Everything was delicious. We were in SB for 4 days and ate breakfast or lunch at Lilac Patisserie every day!

My granddaughter and I love to go to Lilac’s for a morning muffin and tea time together. We’ve been going since she was a toddler. The food and beverages at Lilac’s are always fresh, beautifully presented, and absolutely delicious!!!

I am not gluten free- don't need to be, however, the sandwiches at Lilac are some of the best in Santa Barbara! The flavors and texture of these sandwiches are amazing! And what lovely decor. Turkey is the best!!

Everything is tasty and gluten-free! I've had lunch and ordered a birthday cake. Both were excellent and well-done. It's hard to take friends out to lunch who are on gluten-free restrictions. This hits the spot and my friends loved this place.
