This restaurant, attached to the Vagabond motel, has been there as long as I can remember. It's an excellent place for breakfast with competitive pricing. Locals love it, too...

The staff is very attentive, the food never disappoints and although we are only able to visit once a year, we are always welcomed like old friends.

We were visiting friends that live in Ventura. They told us this was the best breakfast in town. Absolutely nothing fancy but great food. Perfect for breakfast.

The food was delicious and the waitresses went out of their way to be helpful. A friend had the liver and onions and said it was very good. They have a very complete menu and the prices are reasonable. A nice family restaurant.

I've been going here since I was a kid and now we take our kids here! The decor is the same which makes it feel like your going to grandma's house! It's good old school food. The portions are big and the prices are cheap. The staff is great, too. The Vagabond never lets us down.
