I appreciate that a lot of downtown Oxnard's shops & eateries have used & preserved these old buildings, but for the ecletic feel of this place it kinda seems trapped in the wrong body so to speak. Anyway, minor quirk. The food was definitely fresh, just not quite "fabulous." My sandwich was good. The pita chips, even with salt, were... More

I stopped in for a quick sandwich, and found myself enjoying a delicious turkey panini with a generous bowl of corn chowder. It is in an old Woolworth's with a lot of seating. The staff are friendly, and there are plenty of good options. I especially liked the little scoop if hummus with my sandwich; nice touch.

We stopped here for lunch on our way from Anaheim to Santa Barbara. I'm SO glad we did!! The food here is excellent! 'Fresh & Fabulous' is the perfect name for this restaurant. It is located in the old Woolworth building, which is a cool little spot itself ~ steeped in history from the days of Woolworth's in our neighborhoods.... More

We stopped here for lunch before a museum tour, figuring it would be a satisfactory quick lunch. What we got was an excellent lunch! Incredibly flavorful with very fresh ingredients. The fresh rosemary lemonade is fantastic. The appetizer sampler platter is a great pick, the quiche was outstanding and had a great crust, really good soup. And the reuse of... More

Housed in an old Woolworths building, this is a real gem. We all enjoyed our lunch here. I had a very tasty chicken salad and others had soup or sandwiches. The specials are highly recommended. Eat here - you will love it. Friendly staff too.

This place has it all: great location, ambiance, good food, nice staff, even homemade jams. We had the combo 1/2 sandwich small soup (my daughter)/small salad (me). We both ordered the spicy chicken sandwich - mine on foccia, hers on sourdough. They were tasty, but not "spicy". The mushroom soup was heavenly, and the apple and beet salad was delicious.... More

While not much to look at, the food is outrageously fresh & delicious. Not a fan of ordering at the counter, but at least the food is brought to the table. The hummus & tabbouleh were excellent & sandwiches very fresh & yummy. While they don't publish a kids menu, they will make a simple kid-friendly sandwich upon request. Highly... More

This is located in downtown Oxnard in the old Woolworth building and its decorated with cool retro hanging spheres and lots of character. The food is very good, salads, sandwiches, pastries, soups, and whatever gems they are cooking special for that day are all fantastic. I usually get half sandwich and half salad, a perfect lunch. The rosemary lemonade is... More

This cafe is located in the old 5 & Dime. Very good food and it is a step back in time. They serve humus with their sandwiches and salads. It is an extra good teat.
