Savoy Cafe & Deli Restaurant Review: Savoy Café & Deli, located just off the main drag in downtown Santa Barbara, is a cross between a European café --- with freshly baked goods, espresso drinks, beer and wine --- and an upscale American cafeteria where diners serve themselves from an extensive salad bar or order comfort food classics such as mac ‘n’ cheese, pot roast and mashed potatoes. This is one of the preferred lunch spots for health-conscious diners and those looking for something different. Apropos of the wholesome clientele, Savoy has a heavy health-conscious element, with many things organic, from eggs and coffee to tofu and loose leaf teas. We like the eggs Benedict and the broccoli and cheddar quiche. The room can be packed during prime time in the middle of the day, but the quality food and rosy ambience make it worth the wait.
