Large portions!

We have been eating at and getting take out a lot lately and not only is the food of great quality but the portions for the price a large enough to share with one or two other people. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the patio always seems to be busy. Wonton salad is wonderful. They... read more

Cute little place with great salads (try the beet salad) really good pizzas and surprisingly good pasta dishes. The best part of the restaurant, however, is a darling back yard patio with a long banquet table, and cute little two-tops all covered by a great big shady tree.

Just came back from our visit to Ojai and Papa Lennon's. I didn't realize it was a self-serve restaurant, but that's okay. I ordered the Wonton Chicken salad, which was good. I also ordered a mushroom pizza and that's where the disappointment comes in. There was simply nothing good about it. I'm sure the crust is frozen from a package.... More

All menu selections are very good; we have never been disappointed. My favorites are the Mediterranean Pizza, the Beatnik Salad, and the Thai Pizza. You can have this with a side of French Fries if you are sharing with friends. Try to eat on the patio rather than indoors where it is noisy. It's always lovely to sit in the... More

This is one of those small, intimate places with patio and inside dining. The patio dining reminds me of a charming cafe tucked away on a side street in a small Italian village. The menu is small enough to take the pain out of extensive menus, but small enough to have choices between sandwiches, salads, pizza, pasta and few specials.... More

This is a nice, very casual little place serving great 10 inch pizzas and several choices of delicious, freshly made salads. The salads are large and easily serve two. They have a good selection of pastas and a couple of Panini sandwiches available, too. A comfortable patio area is also available for dining as well as inside eating space. We... More

My favorites here are the Thai chicken pizza and the veggie sandwich. Everything is good. I think their salad entrees could be improved a bit though.

This is a great place to come for a casual meal, or a take home dinner. Outdoor seating or in, with many great food options. This is one of my go to places for a reliable meal that doesn't break the bank.
