Santa Barbara Area Cold Spring's Tavern


Cold Spring Tavern - fabulous food and atmosphere

Along the San Marcos Pass lies The Cold Spring Tavern, an old-fashioned restaurant rooted in history and rustic charm. While the original structure was believed to be built in 1860, it began operating as a stagecoach stop in 1868. The stagecoach company provided services to passengers traveling between Santa Barbara and Santa Ynez and also carried mail. Today, the tavern serves up homemade food, including their famous tri-tip, to travelers looking for a good hearty meal in a friendly, inviting atmosphere.

The restaurant has a wonderful outside covered patio.  The drive on highway 154 from Santa Barbara is breathtaking and worth the 15-minute drive to the Tavern.

Cold Spring Tavern will be open on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. during the month of February for carry-out and take-away orders only. We will not be re-opening full service outdoor dining yet. We do have picnic tables (socially distanced) in the front of the Tavern that are available on a first come first service basis for you to enjoy your carry-out. There are also many beautiful spots close to the Tavern to pull off and enjoy a picnic lunch.

Call ahead if possible so that we can have your order ready when you arrive. 805-967-0066
Please wear your mask while waiting on your food and picking up your order. We will have ours on too!
In addition to our regular lunch menu we also have many great bottles of wine available for purchase, as well as gift cards and Cold Spring Tavern t-shirts, hats, and sweatshirts.

We do plan to return to outdoor dining and begin expanding our hours in the Spring, so please check back for updates to our operation as we navigate this pandemic. Thank you for your support and kindness throughout this very difficult time.

I love Santa Barbara! I am running an electrician company near me and can't wait for things to get back to normal for all the events!
