We always order for Goodland Kitchen when we are having business meetings at the office and everyone really enjoys their food! The hummus is AMAZING and so are the chicken kabobs!! They are also on Axxess and their prices are very fare.

Ate breakfast on our last day in town and really enjoyed it. Prices were great, atmosphere was very relaxed and the owner was awesome. We got a couple of burritos and a panini and they tasted great. They accidentally switched our order with another customer and the owner offered to rebate both our meals. However, we both declined as it... More

As far as old-town Goleta, this place is the only game in town for lunch in my opinion but even if they wasn't I'd still eat here OFTEN. I love the daily specials. The food is fresh and always has a home-cooked feel to it. You can tell the owner cares about quality food and a quality casual small kitchen... More

I don't go here often enough. It's hard to park. But the food is delicious. Fresh and simple. Definitely try the Mediterranean salad!

The food was healthy and delicious! I'm not one to go looking for healthy food so when it turned out to be delicious too I was sold! The woman that took our order was super sweet and friendly. We're hoping to make it to try their breakfast (7-10:30 at least on weekdays) before we leave!

They offer the best food at a reasonable price. They offer healthy options and FRESH food. They always have something like a special salad that they offer until it's gone.

Best breakfast!! Stopped in with friends and we were pleasantly surprised how healthy and yummy our breakfast was... Only disappointment is we leave this afternoon and won't have another opportunity to have another breakfast there.

The Woodland Kitchen is the perfect place to go for an informal breakfast or lunch. The food is amazingly good--fresh, healthy and inventive. High quality bakery items enhance the creative ingredients and menu. You will not leave hungry--most likely full but feeling good about your healthy choice. It is informal--so best seats are on the picnic tables outside.
