“Best In Ojai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2009

Ojai Cafe Emporium, as it is correctly called, is a great place! It has got to be one of the best in Ojai in terms of food, service and value. The signature Topa Topa Salad, quiches, and omlettes are our favorites. The waitpersons are so personable and friendly ~ we feel like we're part of their family when we go there. And relative to the other places to dine in town, the prices are comparable for the amount of food and quality of food. The only complaint we have is that it can get a bit noisy inside the restaurant when it's filled. Easily found by traveling along Ojai Avenue, turn south on Montgomery Street, across from the Ojai Art Center. Usually good parking unless its a Sunday after church or holiday weekend (in which case street parking is an option). Open daily until 3pm. I'm not associated with Cafe Emporium in any way, just an loyal diner.

“Just Okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2009

Visited this place about 15 years ago and it was great..food, service. But I guess it has changes hand over the years and lately it has become very disappointing. Very OVER PRICED and service seems a bit cold.

“best ojai has to offer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2009

What a great hidden away breakfast spot. Ben to the Ojai coffee emporium many times, always great food. This place is kinda hidden off the main road through town. When we visit Ojai we always eat here and then get a few of there wonderful muffins to go. Wish we had a place like this in my hometown.

“Amazing brunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2008

We ate here for a Saturday brunch while on vacation in Ojai in mid-September 2008. Our innkeeper recommended it. We are thankful we got there in time for brunch. I had a very tasty omelette (spinach, tomato, feta), with fruit salad and homemade scone from the co-located bakery, and organic coffee. There is a nice patio, but it was too hot to sit outside. The place seemed full of locals, not just tourists which I took as a good sign.
