A cafe-market-bakery-salad bar serving Mexican food using organic chiles, tomatoes and tomatillos grown at the farm. The tortillas are handmade and the sangria is topped with local Ojai citrus. Quite a few vegan, raw and gluten-free offerings; everything else is vegetarian. Lovely outdoor patio with a striped green awning and a view of the mountains.

My favorite place to eat in the Ojai valley!

I think all the food at this restaurant is great. My favorites are any of their soups and the veggie burger. They only use the best, fresh ingredients.

Apart from wonderful goodies the staff are absolutely the most personable, what could be better! Check the opening hours they are a little unusual but worth discovering.

One of the painful experiences eating out for my wife and I, is the feeling that we can do much better at home, At the Farmer & Cook, we always feel good after our meal and know that it is mostly farm to table cooking. The care that they put into their menu, the prepared foods, the groceries you can... More

The most imaginative and light Mexican fare imaginable. We had the Huarache and the goat cheese and veggie tacos and couldn't have been more pleased. Our only regret is that we didn't order a couple of smoothies to take with us. Next time.

Had a great Veggie burger and a Pinkus beer. They have a great local growers market inside as well. Could not decide what to eat because it al sounded so good! Can't wait to try a new dish next time!!

Some of the best food in Ojai, I highly recommend the taquitos, the veggie burgers, and the smoothies.

Family-run, farm-to-table, local hip restaurant and grocery store. There is a special atmosphere in the place, driven by the organic offerings. I prefer to order their cooked food, just because I'm never sure how long the fresh salads have been sitting around at that salad bar counter. Their Wednesday night walnut loaf special is my favorite! Dogs are welcome outdoors.... More

Stopped by this funky, hippy, organic restaurant on our way out of town for a quick breakfast. No crowd on a Monday but they must do a huge business all day and there is tons of seating inside and out. Mexican is their menu during the day, but just a stop for a fresh smoothie is worth the drive.

I've often come here to refuel after the hikes and perhaps buy a veggie or two. Sometimes we'd have dinner with friends. The service has always been perfunctory and excruciatingly slow but in good company one tends to take this in stride. Today, however, they broke the proverbial camel's back. When I came for the veggie burger the waitress directed... More

It was an amazing special event dinner that blew away dinners I've had that cost three times as much. On weekends it is the most original cooking you will find. The produce is very fresh and seasonal. It's vegetarian but you won't miss the meat. Casual atmosphere with a happy disorganized that makes you think of Big Sur. It's the... More
