About Helena Avenue Bakery


Helena Avenue Bakery is a southern-inspired artisan bakery and casual cafe offering rustic, organic breads, handmade seasonal pastries, scratch made breakfast fare, gourmet sandwiches on freshly baked bread and seasonal salads. The take-out menu is ideal for dining in or taking away to enjoy at home, nearby wine tasting rooms, the beach or picnics around town. Helena Avenue Bakery shares a space with the Santa Barbara Wine Collective so you can grab a bottle of your favorite local wine for a perfect picnic.

Chef Adam Shoebridge


Raised in North Carolina, Adam Shoebridge started cooking at thirteen helping his mother and grandmother with family dinners as their ‘best helper.’ He spent his adult years traveling the world building his career with stints in Colorado; Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts; Charleston, South Carolina; Sonoma, California; Nashville, Tennessee; Melbourne and Sydney in Australia; and Hong Kong. Self-taught and learning on the job gave Adam his professional skills but in his heart, he knew that his favorite foods would always be “soul food cooking” – dishes that one feels from the inside.


Accolades: High praise from The Hollywood Reporter, Zagat.com, and the SoCal Restaurant Show.
