Stearns Wharf has been open during the Pandemic with only a few of the restaurants available for takeout.  Phase 2 implementation has allowed almost all of the businesses to reopen. The Sea Center and Conway Winery will start to reopen when safe to do so, likely in Phase 3.

If you looking to get out and get some fresh air, check out Stearns Wharf.  For public safety the businesses are certifying to the County/State Health requirements.  There’s a lot of room for safe distancing, all the restaurants have outdoor seating, and as always – fishing is free.  We believe everybody should stay healthy, so masks are required for entry into the shops and restaurants; Lil’ Toot is wearing a mask too!.  

Stearns wharf has the best views of the Channel Islands and Santa Barbara.  Parking on the wharf and the adjacent lots are not monitored at this time, so take advantage of the free parking.  Visit your favorite shop or restaurants and watch for future openings!

Stearns Wharf is located in the harbor in Santa Barbara, California. When completed in 1872, it became the longest deep-water Wharf between San Pedro and San Francisco. Named for its builder, local lumberman John P. Stearns, the wharf served the passenger and freight shipping needs of California’s South Coast for over a century.   Stearns Wharf, Your local destination - and where State Street Meets the Sea.  Ninety minutes free parking, and always dog-on-a-leash friendly.

"On The Alley" has been open for a couple weeks. NO inside seating, just outside seating available. I LOVE their Fish & Chips ....

Is it just the name of the business, or is there actually a Madame Rosinka? I'd have to think "she" would have to be 140 years old at this point (of course not 140 years old, but I think that business has been there for at least 60 years or more). Wonder if the "Peanut/Popcorn Man" with the old truck decorated with swirly-gig pin-wheels ever went in for a reading (or whatever they do at Madame Rosinka's).

Depending on which location you visit at a certain time, I believe there are three generations of Madameses that have been providing this form of entertaining charlatanry since 1951.

Yes, there was, but she passed away. She started in Goleta on Pine Avenue. https://www.independent.com/2015/10/15/barbara-sonia-adams-aka-madame-rosinka-1947-2014/
