Humuhumu’s description

Alphie's is a greasy-spoon diner, serving breakfast and lunch. The space is light and airy, with white walls, but there are quite a few Polynesian touches throughout. There are some carved tikis on the wall, lauhala matting, tapa cloth, and an outrigger hanging overhead. It's a family-run joint, and if you are lucky, you may catch the owner and friends playing jazz.

After years of visiting Goleta I finally go there before 2pm so I could finally go to Alphies. According to Tiki Central I believe the place opened in 1957 as a Polynesian beer and tiki place but then was sold to someone else in the 80's. They did have a kitchen fire in early 2018 but are luckily still with us.

I thought it would have a tiki here or there but had a lot of nice touches. The food was good and service was fast.

My husbands fave part was the Beer Wolf Coors Lite mirror by the kitchen. Sorry, I couldn't get a photo.

If you just look at it for what it is, it's actually kind of cool: an island-themed breakfast joint with a lot of authentic oceanic decor. The food (with names like "Beachcomber Breakfast")really isn't all that special, but the place has a Hawaiian feel to it. It's a good place to go if you're visiting SB or passing through town, but doesn't justify a special trip.
