Cold Spring Tavern
I love finding quirky, one of a kind restaurants, when I travel. So, I was excited to discover Cold Spring Tavern in the mountains above Santa Barbara. It is obviously quirky and is definitely one of a kind.
The tavern was actually a stagecoach stop back in the day, and it has authentic Old West style. Many of the buildings have been there since the 1800's, so there is history everywhere you turn.
We arrived around 4pm, which is between their lunch and dinner service. Between meals, they offer a limited food menu and an extensive beverage menu in the bar. The complete menu would have been nice, but this menu had more than enough. They even had a vegetarian quiche for me and their famous tri-tip for my meat eating friend.
