Espresso Machine at Our De La Vina Location

Thanks to the addition of our new espresso machine, we now serve all espresso coffee drinks at our De La Vina and Calle Real locations with more to come soon. Now you can order an iced latte or a cappuccino with your stack of chocolate chip pancakes or sip a vanilla latte after polishing off the last of your eggs benedict.

We are happy to provide our customers a wide selection of classic morning drinks to get your day started. We hope to soon become your favorite neighborhood coffee spot.  We also offer our coffee and espresso drinks to-go with convenient parking behind the restaurant.

background on Cajun Kitchen

A Santa Barbara Tradition for over 30 Years

The Jimenez family has owned and operated Cajun Kitchen Café since 1984, offering quality food and fast, friendly service to generations of Santa Barbara locals and tourists alike.  Richard Sr. took over the original Cajun Kitchen on De La Vina in Santa Barbara and in the following years expanded to additional locations in Goleta and Ventura.  Recently, operations have been overseen by by his two sons Richard Jr. and Juan, keeping the restaurant within the family.  Together, they hope to carry on these traditions for years to come.  

Family Coffee Local

Cajun Kitchen has a casual, family-friendly vibe and is a place where you can grab a quick bite before work, hang out with the kids on a Saturday morning, or nurse your hangover from the night before with our Cajun style breakfast and lunch dishes.

We hope that you’ll feel right at home when you’re at Cajun Kitchen and continue making us part of your favorite Santa Barbara breakfast or lunch spots.
