Cold Spring Tavern is a sycamore-shaded, hidden gem of a restaurant; a great dining experience off the beaten path.

Nestled on the other side of the mountains just off of highway 154, the Cold Spring Tavern is one of the most historic places in all of Santa Barbara. This biker bar turned local favorite began as a stage coach stop in 1886, and opened as a Tavern in 1941. In separate historic buildings there is a restaurant and a small bar, all kept to look the same as it did in the 19th century. Visit the Tavern on the weekends for live music all day and the best tri-tip sandwich in town.
