For you history buffs...

According to Wikipedia, “The streets were laid out in an irregular grid transected by spokes from a central circular hub, a street named Argonne Circle. In 1926, plans were approved for the San Roque Country Club and golf course to occupy much of the area adjacent to Rutherford Park, but development stalled due to the Great Depression and in 1939 portions of the unbuilt golf course land were donated to the city of Santa Barbara to become San Roque Park and Stevens Park. In 1928, Peabody Elementary School was built in San Roque in response to population growth.”

Loreto Plaza which is now famous for Harry’s Plaza Cafe, Chaucer’s Books, Seven Day Nursery and Gelson’s was previously a lemon orchard before the plaza was developed in the late 1950s.

Here is a tip…if the restaurant is busy, they sell Renauld’s pastries at Gelson’s which is also located in Loreto Plaza. Pizza Guru is a perfect spot to pick up lunch. They offer a large variety of pizzas and are known to load the toppings on. They don’t believe less is more!
