One of my favorite things to do, be a weekend, a day off, or a holiday is to hit the road to beautiful Santa Barbara just about an hour and thirty minutes away from home, and during one of those visits about 6 months ago we spotted a sign that read Handlebar Coffee Roasters Opening Soon, on Canon Perdido, not too far from the location of the weekly SB Farmers Market. When I got home I looked for more information about it and found Handlebar Coffee Roaster’s website/blog, since then I’d been following them on their blog and twitter waiting for an announcement about their grand opening… until early November when they wrote:
Tires are pumped….the doors are open!
So finally last weekend we drove to Santa Barbara and visit Handlebar Coffee, beautiful space, they have their roaster onsite, their coffee is great, and the location is just perfect for a place to peacefully enjoy a cup of coffee. I love good coffee and I’m always looking for new shops to try and love, so this will definitely be a stop for us when in, near or passing by Santa Barbara.
Handlebar is co owned and operated by former World Class, Professional Cyclists Aaron Olson and Kim Anderson, they are super friendly and love sharing wonderful stories about coffee and bikes, while offering excellent customer service.
