Delicious sandwiches

Knead is excellent. The ingredients and sandwiches are very fresh and delicious. The roll that the sandwich was on was soft and freshly baked. Highly recommend eating at Knead. Keep in mind cash only no credit cards.

Very friendly bakers with a great story. The cupcakes were delicious and the service was perfect. We highly recommend stopping in for some great bread or a delectable dessert!

Go for the bakery goods. Sticky buns were amazing, warm and nicely done. Coffee was just brewed, nothing special. If you want coffee, go somewhere else!

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
