This sweet place has everything one wants in going out to a restaurant. The food was fantastic, especially the beatnik salad. The music was classical, some local art on the walls and just pleasant with local people coming and going. There is an outside patio and you order and pay at the counter. This works well because you never are... More

We found this place by accident. We go there for lunch almost every time we are in Ojai for the weekend. Their pizza is great and the salads are good too. The patio has a fountain and the atmosphere is peaceful. I think you will have a good lunch if you go to Papa Lennon's.

A lovely little local place, with fantastic food and a beautiful staff ... nice people. Chicken panini was excellent, and the fettuccine alfredo w/chicken was sublime.

Papa Lennon's is a absolute gem! It's a perfect neighborhood restaurant, casual, quirky and with a very nice staff of locals. But the food is truly exceptional, I have sent many, MANY guests to Papa Lennon's and everyone has absolutely adored it. The tomatoes and salads are fresh and flavorful, nothing corporate here! All fresh and savory. My favorite is... More

Food was good, service was decent, but the final bill astounded us! Three people, pizza, salad, a bottle of wine, a beer and a lemonade, dessert, tax and a small tip... $150.00. OMG!!! If we return, it will be pizza only, and take-out so we can drink our wine at home. Good food, but certainly not worth the price. We... More

Couldn't have picked a better place. Ordered a pizza, soup and garlic fries to share. Everything was great, The best part was the serine atmosphere of the outside... More

The salads, pizzas and sandwiches are exceptional for the price. And the courtyard setting is delightful. Plenty of room for kids and pets. And the music is delightful. While usually its a solo singer/guitar player singing songs from the 60's and 70's, I was blessed to be there when these descendants of the Lennon Sisters had an extended family reunion... More

Yesterday afternoon we ate at Papa Lennon's. My wife had a chicken and brie panini and I had a house salad and garlic fries. The food was fine - nice portion size - served hot and fresh and the price was fine ($24.67 food & one iced tea + one soda). If the food, price ambiance (we sat on the... More

This spot is quaint with fresh produce and great pizza. Salads are awesome. And I have heard best chicken alfredo anywhere.
