The place for breakfast in Ojai

Had two different omelettes on different days (Tahoe and California) both were outstanding. Service is friendly but can get a little overwhelmed on busy mornings.

The waffles were good but the omelets were just average. It reminded of me of food you would eat at a diner which I personally don't like.

With both indoor and outdoor seating available, the menu offers a good variety of sandwiches salads and entrées. The burgers can be ordered to temp, sort of, as the coolest possible is "mid-rare", but when ordered, it actually turned out to be medium. The Ruben sandwich was good, and onion rings likewise tasty. A grilled chicken salad was very large... More

This is Ojai, I come here to slow down and don't expect things to happen at a city pace. That being said and with all consideration for their busy lunch hour, having ordered simple items from the lunch menu, a classic burger and a turkey sandwich, we waited 55 minutes after placing our order for our food to arrive. When... More

The desserts are not very different than other venues, but OK . The room is very small and the atmosphere not impressive. The small staff seem a bit bored.

Both of us were thrilled with not... More

we stopped by for breakfast on our way out of town and no one was disappointed! All four of us had egg dishes that were cooked and flavored to perfection. My husband and daughter had potatoes with their dish that were crispy on the outside, moist on the inside and seasoned perfectly. The coffee was delicious and just kept coming.... More
