good wholesome food

Good food and service with smiling helpful waitresses. Might be a bit old fashioned, but that's the way I like it.

I was here last July 4th before the street fair and had just a small bite and they were pretty jam packed so I thought I'd save my review for another time which came about last Saturday morning. The two of us walked in to a half filled restaurant. The hostess seemed a little bit snobby when we were first... More

for breakfast the waitress was kind of grumpy, I felt like I was a bother. My bacon tasted like it was cooked on a dirty grill. We got an order to go for dinner my ham and cheese sandwich was pretty good, but the spaghetti sauce not so good. Price is too high for the quality

We were recommended to eat breakfast here whilst staying in Ventura. It was not good. Limp salad, tasteless grilled cheese sandwich, venue living off past glories. I'm sure the regulars like it but it's not for out of towners wanting some quality on their vacation. Go to Ruby's diner instead on East Main a couple blocks away with free parking... More

Breakfast is the bomb! Best omelettes, great portions, good prices. Service is great. The pepper sauce is wonderful! You can buy it there to take home.

I go to Vagabond all the time. They have great breakfasts, but good food for all of their meals. And, if you like the daily specials, it's a wonderful deal.

I can only think people come here because they meet friends or it feels familiar. The coffee to the dessert was too salty/sweet/tasteless or had gravy to cover it up. Nothing was fresh. My salad looked like it came from a bag. This place is in an area with the freshest vegetables in America, year round, yet everything was processed.

Once a premier neighborhood coffee shop with fine breakfast, lunch, dinner. A destination although a coffee shop. Now just average. Slow service. Eggs not as requested. Specialty potatoes filled with massive amounts of near raw onion. Sure not what it used to be.
