We enjoyed our lunch although my husband had breakfast. All the food was tasty and fresh. The best part of my meal was the pumpkin raisin muffin fresh from their bakery.

We went here after getting chatting to a local lady walking her dog and asking her for a recommendation for lunch. It was Sunday and very busy so we reserved a table and went to Bart's bookstore and the Farmer's Market. Although they were serving brunch they were happy to let us order from the normal lunch menu. This was... More

Came here with my family on Labor Day and man the food was great! I had the California croissant with hash browns and a cup of house coffee. My cousins and sister had the Belgium waffles and that was very good as well! My sis had the Pom mimosa and she thought it was delicious! The quiche was perfectly done... More

The place prepares everything on site so the parties etc are always fresh. We went 3 mornings for breakfast. We ate both in the coffee parlour and on the terrace. Very good service, great fresh food, big portions and fair prices. Lots of locals eating there so a good indication of consistent quality. Will return.

Emporium is always a hit, great for families or just the two of you. So many options, your biggest issue will be what to choose. Scones and homemade granola are delicious. Central downtown location with indoor and covered-patio seating. The staff is always warm and friendly. I've been coming here for years and it never disappoints.

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful breakfast on the patio of this restaurant. It serves breakfast and lunch only and is located one block off Ojai Ave, the main street in town. It also offers indoor seating. Ample off street parking lot is available. My Eggs Benedict and my wife's omelet were exceptional. Service was very good.

Portions are ample and the menu features lots of variety and opportunity to build your own egg scramble, wrap, omelet with many veggie choices. The pancake, waffle and French toast choices looked good, too. Many specialty dishes. Nice service, large indoor and outdoor seating. Good for small or large groups.

We went when they just opened because we had an early tee time at the golf course and I asked waitress if she could serve us quickly. She couldn't have been more accommodating and the breakfast was excellent. Best scones I've ever had.

What a great little place for breakfast/lunch! He had breakfast, I had lunch. I built my own burger with mushrooms, bleu cheese, and grilled onions. It came out massive and steaming, along with a huge pile of tasty fries. Fair prices. Great atmosphere - better than your average diner -- and outdoor patio, surrounded by plants. Lots of decent parking.... More

Wonderful breakfast with great food, attentive waiter, beautiful patio. Would suggest you not order a scone as it was very dry, but my husband's cinnamon roll was the best ever!
