Greenhouse Café 487 Atterdag Rd., (805) 688-8408. No reservations. Set within a remodeled greenhouse with plenty of windows, this bright spot also has a delightful patio offering a town view—my own choice in good weather. When I visit this atmospheric town, I like to indulge in the Danish foods—for breakfast aebleskivers, and for lunch petite open-face sandwiches (the roast beef here is tops). More menu options include the Nordic Combination (Danish sausage and Swedish meatballs with pan-fried potatoes, gravy, and red cabbage) and the Nordic Lobster Wrap (fresh lobster with avocado, tomato, and lettuce wrapped in a flour tortilla), and a cup of the housemade pea soup is especially nice on a cool day.
