About Lucky Penny

 

Lucky Penny is a casual cafe for dining in on our outdoor heated patio or taking away to the beach, your favorite tasting room or other local Santa Barbara location. Lucky Penny features artisanal pizzas from a wood-burning oven, garden fresh salads, seasonal small plates, house-made hot & cold sandwiches, and house-made baked treats. Lucky Penny serves locally produced wines from Notary Public, craft beers and the ever popular frozen libation, Frosé (frozen rosé). Covered in 156,000 pennies, Lucky Penny is a sight not to be missed.

Chef Ron Batdorf

 

Chef Ron Batdorf was born and raised in Springfield Oregon. He attended culinary school at the French Culinary Institute in 2012 in the Bay Area. After moving to Santa Barbara in 2016, Chef Batdorf worked at Lucky Penny’s sister property, The Lark, before being offered the head chef position. Chef Batdorf feels working at Lucky Penny is special because of the value placed in the staff, creating a strong culture of teamwork and hospitality.

Aimee Monroy, Manager

 

If you heard a song play as Aimee entered the room it’d be “You Make My Dreams” by Hall & Oates. This is true when it comes to pizza, people, and good times in general! Born and raised in the San Fernando Valley, she’s a valley girl, the real deal, like totally. She’s lived in Santa Barbara for 24 years and grateful for it every day. Aimee’s been with ACME family from the very start, serving at The Lark primarily on the communal table, which she loved the most! Community being the keyword. Community and lots of heart are why Aimee remains a part of the Acme family.
