5995 Stagecoach Road Santa Barbara California 93105 USA
The Cold Spring Tavern began as a stagecoach stop in 1886. The physical appearance of the Tavern has been protected by a series of owners and most recently by Adelaide Ovington and her daughter Audrey who purchased the Tavern in 1941. It has been operating as a restaurant/tavern continuously since that date. Many famous people have been to the Tavern over the years. One movie and several television programs were filmed here. When asked why the fact that many Hollywood stars visited the Tavern was never publicized, Audrey's answer was, "... Honey, .. That's why they come."
