South Coast Deli has long been one of my favorite places to grab a sandwich in Santa Barbara and ever since they started doing breakfast sandwiches this obsession has only become stronger. This morning I decided to stop by the Patterson location before heading over to Jordanos for a quick breakfast. Inside this location they have plenty of seating and is relatively mellow during the morning hours. It’s always fun to watch all of the employees in the back putting together all of the office orders for later in the day. With all of the companies in that area of Goleta, this location seems to specialize in office deliveries. This morning was acrtually the first instance when I had to wait at the register for more than a minute before someone came to help me. I was plenty fine with this as I could see everyone behind the scenes working their butts off and it didnt look like anyone was slacking in the slightest. I’ve met both Dar and Jim (the owners) on seperte occasions and there couldn’t be a nicer couple and proffessional when it comes to running such a hopping place. Their other locations (Chapala, Carrillo, IV) all have a faithful following and come lunch time they must be closed if the line isn’t out the door!
Today I ordered the Max’s Sandwich off of the breakfast menu which comes on sliced/toasted sourdough and includes scrambled eggs, bacon, pepper-jack cheese, tomato, and cajun mayo. I was able to use my Axxess card for a free coffee (Peet’s). The sandwich came out quickly and was as tasty and filling as usual. This is a sandwich to have if your looking for a big breakfast or know you won’t be eating again until well after lunch time.
