Great food and friendly service. The ambiance wasn't great when we went...maybe because we were there for an early lunch? The outdoor seating area could be cozy but needed some attention.

Not a traditional breakfast place. They offered only sandwiches and some baked goods. Everything was fresh and delicious, but a bit expensive at $9 for a small bun with a fried egg, cheese and spinach. The place is by the road, so it was also a bit noisy. I didn't love it, but I'd go back!

Everything is super fresh and you can tell all is made with fine, high quality ingredients and baked with love and care. Everything we tried was delicious. Awesome scones. Try the unique cornmeal blueberry muffin. Never had anything quite like it but it will be a selection for sure on my next trip to Ojai. We had breakfast at Knead... More

If you are downtown Ojai, stop by this cute little place!! So yummy. Had the quiche with an arugula, manchego cheese and marinated artichoke salad. The pastries are divine too.

We stopped for breakfast on our way back to the Santa Barbara airport. My husband had two (small) croissants with scrambled eggs on the side, I had a breakfast sandwich (egg, cheese, arugula) on the "house" roll. Both were delicious. We arrived at opening (8 AM) and they were not busy. The menu and selection are limited, but the staff... More

Ojai is a funny town for food - and this traveler has eaten in almost every establishment over the last dozen years or so. Without question, if anyone asks, Knead is the only bakery/restaurant that can earn my excellent rating without any hedging AND this rating is given with confidence that the standards will remain high over time and everything...

Really yummy bread looks like it's all made on premises, whole wheat English muffin with eggs prosciutto and arugula was delicious. Sit outside on the shady/sunny patio. Great breakfast sandwich, my best of the year (so far).

Knead does an excellent job with its ingredients and offerings. My only complaint is it's a bit expensive for regular visits.
