While I like to think I have high standards when it comes to a cup of coffee, my true test for a great coffee shop is the quality of their food items. Handlebar Coffee is a Santa Barbara institution, and since I love coffee shops so much, I had to make sure I tried it out while I was in town. It perfectly encapsulates the Santa Barbara spirit in one place, with relaxed vibes, cheerful and personable workers, and tasty coffee and food. I definitely stopped by every morning I was in Santa Barbara, and every morning the food delivery truck dropped off freshly made items. Their scones and avocado toast were both favorites of mine.
