Delicious food, unique atmosphere and they even gave us the recipe for their butternut squash soup. So delicious!! I would recommend the other Bother's Red Barn in Santa Ynez. These guys have the restaurant business wired!

This is a quaint place. It is small so I suggest reservations or you will be waiting. We showed up 30 minutes early and waited for 15 minutes, not bad.

This place is popular for a reason - good food in the unique atmosphere of an old Valley store. It offers largish portions of generally lite luncheon fare with twists of creative food combinations.

I tried the toasted cheese sandwich with soup. Both were great. Soup was carrot ginger and very tasty. The cheese sandwich included their special bacon. Friend had a beautiful side salad, looked very fresh and was delicious.
