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.

Great service. Did not know gluten free products good be this great. Their cakes for any occasion are the best in town--German Chocolate rocks!

It would be wonderful if this restaurant invested in more comfortable outdoor chairs. They are tiny!! I enjoyed my sandwich but found the bread a bit too cake-y. We had carrot cake too - way too much icing!! It was not good in my opinion...More

This bakery and restaurant is such a great idea. Everything they make is gluten-free and tasty. Their cakes are beautiful. The lunch menu is limited to quiches and salads and sandwiches on their own breads. They also have a good variety of coffee, tea and...More

Wow...what an experience. Fantastic food. Great bring-to-your-table service after you order at counter. Cool to see them preparing cakes and such. Great spot for breakfast, late breakfast/early lunch, or lunch.
