Memorial Day weekend is almost here, and all of us at Cody’s Cafe would like to take a moment to pay our respects to those brave men and women who gave their lives to protect our beloved country. Cody’s would like to spend this Memorial Day by serving our current and former members of the armed forces. That’s why we are offering special discounts and deals for anyone with a military ID on Memorial Day weekend.
Don’t stress having to plan a Memorial Day cookout or party. Come relax and let Cody’s take care of you and the family. This Memorial Day weekend let Cody’s serve you some of the best American comfort food classics. Thinking about having a private party? Cody’s offers a wonderfully affordable private party venue as well. Here’s how Cody’s can turn your Memorial Day into one to remember.
Family First: Cody’s believes in creating a family friendly restaurant without sacrificing atmosphere or quality. Cody’s knows how important your family is to you, and that’s why we believe it’s essential to have a great family friendly restaurant that everyone can enjoy.
Morning, Noon & Night: Whether you are looking for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner, Cody’s servers it all: a fresh breakfast to start the day, a light lunch to keep you active, or a hearty dinner with deserts and drinks. Never worry if it’s a good time to stop at Cody’s. No matter the meal, we will be here.
Fresh is Best: Don’t waste your money stopping at one of the large chain restaurants only to be served frozen processed food. Cody’s uses local vegetables, meat, and spices. When the ingredients are only a few minutes away, there is no need for preservatives and freezing.
America’s Best: Cody’s doesn’t believe in having to over complicate things. We serve our renditions of American classics. Dishes like pot roast, liver and onions, and oven-roasted turkey have disappeared off many restaurant menus across the country. Enjoy these great American classics once again at Cody’s.
Locally Unique: Aren’t you tired of the same décor, same dishes, same atmosphere, same menu, and the same bland taste you get with every chain restaurant? Come to Cody’s and enjoy a unique taste of Santa Barbara. Bring some excitement back into dinner by staying away from chain places and sticking with your neighborhood cafe.
These are just a few reasons how Cody’s can turn your usual Memorial Day weekend into something unusual. Be sure to bring a form of military ID to receive special offers and discounts. Don’t want to to wait to be seated? Make your reservation today by calling (805) 683-5141. Or if you have any questions or comments click here.
One of our regulars at Cody’s Cafe is Rosie, from Rosie’s Cleaning Service. After your big Memorial Day party, if you need help cleaning up, call Rosie!

Greece and RomeIn Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome, thermopolia (singular thermopolium) were small restaurant-bars that offered food and drinks to customers. A typical thermopolium had little L-shaped counters in which large storage vessels were sunk, which would contain either hot or cold food. Their popularity was linked to the lack of kitchens in many dwellings and the ease with which people could purchase prepared foods. Furthermore, eating out was considered a very important aspect of socializing.
|A Roman thermopolium in Pompeii|
In Pompeii, 158 thermopolia with a service counter have been identified across the whole town area. They were concentrated along the main axis of the town and the public spaces where they were frequented by the locals.
The birth of the modern restaurant - Paris in the 18th centuryThe modern idea of a restaurant – as well as the term itself – appeared in Paris in the 18th century. For centuries Paris had taverns which served food at large common tables, but they were notoriously crowded, noisy, not very clean, and served food of dubious quality. In about 1765 a new kind of eating establishment, called a "Bouillon", was opened on rue des Poulies, near the Louvre, by a man named Boulanger. It had separate tables, a menu, and specialized in soups made with a base of meat and eggs, which were said to be restaurants or, in English "restoratives". Other similar bouillons soon opened around Paris. Thanks to Boulanger and his imitators, these soups moved from the category of remedy into the category of health food and ultimately into the category of ordinary food. Their existence was predicated on health, not gustatory, requirements.
The first luxury restaurant in Paris, called the Taverne Anglaise, was opened at the beginning of 1786, shortly before the French Revolution, by Antoine Beauvilliers, the former chef of the Count of Provence, at the Palais-Royal. It had mahogany tables, linen tablecloths, chandeliers, well-dressed and trained waiters, a long wine list and an extensive menu of elaborately prepared and presented dishes. In June 1786 the Provost of Paris issued a decree giving the new kind of eating establishment official status, authorizing restaurateurs to receive clients and to offer them meals until eleven in the evening in winter and midnight in summer. A rival restaurant was started in 1791 by Méot, the former chef of the Duke of Orleans, which offered a wine list with twenty-two choices of red wine and twenty-seven of white wine. By the end of the century there were other luxury restaurants at the Grand-Palais: Huré, the Couvert espagnol; Février; the Grotte flamande; Véry, Masse and the cafe des Chartres (still open, now the Grand Vefour).
