About Vim

Vim is named for the energy and vitality that it brings to the Santa Cruz culinary scene. In an atmosphere of warmth and casual elegance, patrons are invited to linger over approachable New American cuisine, decadent desserts, and modern cocktails. The West Side location includes an outdoor patio and bar to welcome you for a multi-course dinner, drinks, or just desserts. Cheers!
