    Great place to grab breakfast.

    Been here many times but finally got a chance to write a review. Stopped by here with some friend to grab breakfast to start our day. The place has been here for a while which I am glad to see an establishment be in one place for years...especially in Santa Barbara.

    Let's start with the service. The waitress was very attentive and friendly. She always had a smile on her face.

    As for the food, very good. I am not claiming it is 5 stars but very good for what it is. I ordered a Bloody Mary plus a Mexican scramble. Very very good.

    Highly recommend if you are in the area.

    Love coming here. We also make this a stop when we have water polo tournaments. They are always accomodating to our large group and the food is delicious. Always look forward to Jake's Bloody Mary. Will definitely be back!!

    Great Mom and Pop brunch cafe. The menu offers a wide variety of American comfort breakfast food and Mexican breakfast food. The food was so good that I went two days in a row to try another menu item. Everything seemed fresh and homemade, and the portion sizes were phenomenal. I loved the blueberry muffin. The puff on top tasted and felt like a soft sugar cookie, yet the inside was rich and fluffy. Absolutely delicious. The friendly staff and great, reasonably priced food is more than enough to earn my five stars.

    American comfort food kicked up a notch! Very nice staff and quality food. Gluten-free options are not great but you can work with the menu. The environment is clean and well maintained. The prices are incredibly reasonable, especially for this area.

    We had our little dog with us on a trip through Santa Barbara, and I searched online for a dog-friendly restaurant. Cody's Cafe came up, and had some good reviews, so we gave it a try.

    We arrived Sunday morning, no reservations, and the place was pretty packed, but they quickly accommodated us on the patio with our dog. The eggs and sausage/bacon were fine--restaurants really shouldn't be able to mess that dish up (although some find a way). The coffee was fine, orange juice was obviously fresh-squeezed and good, and the hot coco was served in a large mug with a big cap of whipped cream.

    The french toast was just meh, but their PANCAKES were awesome! The regular pancakes and the banana pancakes with walnuts were just wonderful.

    Service was polite and attentive the entire time.

    A+: this was our first time to Cody's cafe and it was the best experience. The outdoor dining is pleasant and festive. All the editors were so cheery and spirited, making the experience all the much more wonderful. It was evident that the family owned love and joy was contagious here. We were all immensely pleased with our meals, as well. The club sandwich hit the spot and they cook their fries perfectly crispy. The protein scramble was delicious for my mother and she ordered a blue berry muffin on the side which she devoured!!! My fiancé LOVED the fish and chips and he is quite the expert on good quality fish and chips. They were fried to crispy golden perfection and the fish inside was buttery, flaked right off and melted in his mouth. I can't wait to come back here and try all the delicious waffles/French toast and other breakfast items that caught my eye at other tables.

    My fiancé and I had breakfast here in the morning on a Sunday when it was relatively quiet. The food is your typical and classic diner food, greasy and delicious. Good coffee, amazing orange juice, really friendly staff. The best part is that they are VERY DOG FRIENDLY! They even have hooks on the walls to leash the dogs next to your table. A really good experience.

    Cody's is phenomenal! Reasonably-priced, delicious food, and big portions. Went with a group of 10 and everyone was very accommodating and kind. I ordered the breakfast enchiladas and eggs with fruit and was very satisfied with my meal.

    Better than any breakfast place back home. Food was good. Service was great! Even had gorgeous Lillie's on every table. I was surprised to see it do busy when I walked in bit after eating here I understand why.

    This place is comfort food and comfort dining to a tee. When we first moved from Carpinteria to Santa Barbara, my wife and I basically ate all of our meals here. The dishes are well prepared, the servers and staff kind and welcoming, and the clientele generally family oriented. They are very accommodating with my young daughter's tastes and whims, while maintaining quality. Though there was an ownership change, during which the experience was less than ideal, it's getting back on its feet. A renovation in the past year also freshened the place up. Glad to have them back for dinner, along with great breakfast and lunch.

    Found this spot through the app while traveling to LA. The service was impeccable, staff was friendly and very attentive. I order one of their Saturday specials, a ham, bacon, cheese scramble, with the yummie cottage fries and the best blueberry muffin I have ever tasted it was warmed and full of berries!
    My husband had the country fried steak with Hashbrowns and a side of bacon with their fresh salsa! All of it was delicious!

    I'm a local and this is my go to restaurant/bar! I'm always wanting to find somewhere new to go to but when the food (breakfast/lunch/dinner) is always amazing, the service is superb, and the drinks are the best in town why would I want to go anywhere else?! It feels like I'm apart of the Cody's family, they're all very personable and friendly! Check codys out whether your visiting or your a local! I love their veggie burgers/cheese burgers, chicken fettuccini, and the seared ahi on the happy hr menu(2-6?) If andrew is bartending you'll be in the best of hands! Ask for his famous strawberry blackout I've been coming here since I was a child and they keep the consistant positive vibes and customer service, with great food/drinks and staff!

    I just enjoyed a delightful dinner at Cody's Cafe! My guest and I were greeted warmly and seated readily. After perusing the menu we each chose an entree from their Specials board - I, the fried chicken and my guest had chicken piccata. Both dishes were cooked to perfection. Our server was bright and cheerful and gave me reason to write this review. Thanks Cody's, I'll be back again soon!

    You know? From far away I was put off by trying this place, and my only regret is not trying it sooner. This place looks better up close.
    I figured out why, the entire shopping center is trash.

    This is one of the only gems from this entire shopping center.

    Service was great, food was good. Will go back again!

    Cody's is a great destination for ether breakfast or lunch! I always come for breakfast and I occasionally do a burger. The pasta is so so and that also serve alcoholic beverages if that tickles your fancy. I like that you can see directly into the kitchen space where the gentleman are hard at work. The staff is always very quick to seat you and take your order and knowledgeable about the menu. The decor is pretty cool and gives you something to converse about while eating your meal pretty cool to see surfboards hanging while you eat hah. Over all I would recommend Cody's to anyone looking to try something new. If you like Eggs Benedict's with some avocado then try out the California Benedict's you would be disappointed!!!
