OUR Story


Our Story

When we started Silvergreens in 1995 in Isla Vista, we wanted to change the way people live their lives, and how they think about food. We were the first restaurant in the world to bring you personalized nutrition information on receipts, Santa Barbara’s first Certified Green Restaurant, and a food destination still committed to a menu made completely from scratch every day!


Today, you can also order Kyle’s Kitchen burgers from our menu.  At our sister restaurants, everytime you eat at Kyle’s Kitchen you are helping someone with special needs reach their potential.  That’s because Kyle donates a portion of his proceeds back to the special needs community.


At Silvergreens, we are dedicated to building a social enterprise that supports our local communities and neighbors. We are just as passionate about REAL FOOD as we are about connecting with our communities and turning our neighbors into friends.


That's what we believe in at Silvergreens.

Lots of flavor made with fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Healthy food that makes you feel good and provides natural energy at the same time.


Our menu is made from scratch every day, from our freshly baked breads, homemade soups & dressings, hand-cut French fries to our oven roasted meats & vegetables.
