The Lucky Hen Larder


Every November for the last 10 years a small group of my friends have been going to Santa Ynez for my best friend’s birthday weekend celebration. We are always looking for new places to eat and taste wine, and always on the hunt for a good sandwich shop. This year our first stop was The Lucky Hen Larder, and boy were we lucky! I will be craving my sandwich for weeks to come. It is the most adorable, quaint little cheese and sandwich shop in the tiny town of Santa Ynez. The menu is constantly changing but I shared two exquisite sandwiches–an Italian antipasto on focaccia bread and a grilled vegetable with herbed goat cheese on focaccia and both were out of this world! They sell lots of specialty market items as well. I bought a fig jam, an olive tapenade, a fresh baguette and a slice of bucheron cheese to bring back to where we were staying. The people who work at The Lucky Hen Larder are lovely as well and make the trip to Santa Ynez even more special. It was a wonderful experience and I can’t wait to go back!
