We are turning over a new leaf!!! For the past 20 years we have had proud relationships with two local families that started home-grown restaurants which are a part of Santa Barbara history. We have been a franchisee of Giovanni’s Pizza and Fresco Cafe Group, respectively, with two decades of experience in operating and managing three restaurants. It is now a perfect time to begin a new chapter with an independent and fresh concept. For the 11 years that we have been at this Calle Real location as a Giovanni’s and Fresco Café North, we have grown and developed into a restaurant that is a favorite amongst locals in both the family and business sector of our neighborhood. We are looking forward to continuing this tradition but with a fresh menu with simple ideas to include more options in small plate items, local craft beers on tap and some of our own popular favorites which have become synonymous with the Govender family and our loyal, long serving staff. Our customers, the life blood of any
establishment, will continue to enjoy the same outstanding service from familiar personnel in front of house operations and our busy, competent kitchen.

We are looking forward to serving you with the best food, building better relations and offering you a new, tasty menu beginning this summer. Welcome and thank you.

The Govender Family
