Discover Santa Ynez Valley

The Santa Ynez Valley is tucked in a lush paradise known for California wines. The Valley is also home to a number of exceptional dining choices that make the most of the rich agricultural region and local produce. Visit a classic street food-style pizzeria with a menu packed with local products. Taste a beef tongue pastrami sandwich or Margherita pizza with fresh mozzarella. If you're looking for healthy, an array of gluten-free, vegan, and vegetarian options are available. There is no shortage of cafes and bistros with seasonal menus featuring octopus salad, mushroom pasta, and lamb shanks for a Greek-American fusion. Start your day with Danish pancakes and various fresh-fruit toppings.
