The Natural Café

With several locations along the south coast and central coast of Santa Barbara County, The Natural Café offers a diverse menu featuring poultry, fish, vegetarian and vegan choices. The soups, salads, sandwiches and entrees are prepared fresh daily in their kitchen with good health AND good taste in mind.

They DO have lots of great veggie options, but let them show you what else they can do! One taste of the chicken enchiladas or the turkey burger with jack cheese will have even the most committed "omnivore" hooked. Natural sodas, made-to-order smoothies, beer and wine are also offered.

"The Natural Café is focused on using fresh, regional ingredients to create healthy and delicious food. We're committed to providing a good value for your health and your budget," says Owner Kelly Brown. "And, we serve the best fish tacos and grilled chicken Caesar in town."

Kelly is an owner out here at Hollister Ranch, and he is a fine example of one who contributes to the community. Often providing food and drink for functions at the Ranch, Kelly also caters the Annual Meeting of the Hollister Ranch Owners’ Association at no cost to the membership. Kelly is a real “giving” sort of guy. Kelly is also a very good friend, and he is an excellent surfer as well.

The Natural Café is doing its part to work towards a greener planet by using regionally produced ingredients, and recycling their glass, cans and paper. They strongly encourage their guests to do the same.

Wishing to preserve the ranchland west of Goleta, we here at Hollister Ranch Realty encourage that practice as well. The dump that filled one of the pristine canyons on the Gaviota Coast (the once beautiful Pila Canyon) is getting so full that the county threatens to industrialize the next canyon to the east (Baron Ranch Canyon) as well. When driving along US 101 past the “land fill,” note the easily observable monstrous man-made mountain of trash.

As Chief Seattle stated so eloquently over 100 years ago..."We are one with the Earth. What we do to Mother Earth, we do to ourselves." It’s up to all of us to take care of both.
