Good home cooking style food. Reasonable prices, not fancy but who cares. Serve a very good breakfast and if you want fried chicken, it isn't cooked until you order it; no steam table.

First-rate throwback to the 50's. Returned after 30 year absence and found nothing had changed. Plain decor, excellent food and friendly (if elderly) waitresses. The flawless old time coffee shop. Enjoy the fried chicken and hot pork sandwich and leave your pretentious attitude behind. You and your tummy will be the better for it.

If you are in need of some food this place is acceptable. Don't go out of your way to get here but don't be afraid to walk through the doors either.

Finally tried this restaurant after many years driving on by. From the outside it is not impressive, the interior decor is dated but a comfortable feel and the staff were great.The menu is varied so you have quite a large choice. Not too many places actually prepare their fried chicken from scratch but vagabond does and definitely worth the 20... More

On vacation in Ventura and on our first morning we were looking for a good and reasonably priced breakfast place near the beach where we were staying. My husband looked up on another site good breakfasts and came up with The Vagabond Coffee Shop. From the outside, you think I don't know- sort of iffy. Inside older... But hey, beach... More

The Vagabond Coffee Shop is the place where my family meets for Sunday brunch when we are in town. There is a waitress who still works part time during the week who I have known since I was 11 years old, and I'm 68 now. One of the greeters was in my high school class and we know lots of... More
