This is a busy café (which is a sign that the food is probably good!) and the food is prepared quickly and tastes great. Prices are reasonable. A great start to your day in Ojai!

We were enchanted by the simply decor, aromas of country cooking, and sweet attentive young server. Food was hearty, flavorful and bountiful ... You could not ask for a better place to start your morning in Ojai!

Excellent choice of traditional country style breakfast - diner style. Service was very attentive and friendly. Try it for some good old fashioned basic fare in a lovely retro environment.

This hometown diner offers a treat to go with your eggs, turkey sausage. It is a free form patty that is a taste delight. All of their breakfast offerings are special, but this one keeps bringing us back whenever we are in Ojai.

Live band paying every other Sunday, I was told, that was wonderful. They were very busy, but I enjoyed having the time to listen to the great band. The food was fresh and very good, very reasonable too.

Can't go wrong here for an old fashioned breakfast with old fashioned food and old fashioned waitresses. Cute and kitchy but the its a great spot for consistently yummy food. Crowd pleaser.
