“Fabulous eatery great change of pace for T.O.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

It's hard to find locally sourced flavorful food in this town full of malls, strip malls and shopping plazas, but this little place is a real gem. There's something for everyone, vegan and carnivore alike. The cucumber-mint lemonade had me going back three times in three days. There's a touch of creativity going on here that melds the flavors and textures beautifully. We had albondigo (meatballs of fire), which depending on your tolerance for hot pepper may be perfect or not enough - it just depends- in either case they were tasty; very veggie very good sandwich for our vegetarian friend and chop chop salad - hearty and tasty with a good blend of textures and tastes.

You feel that all the ingredients are fresh and well prepared. It's kind of hard to go wrong with the selection and the price seems about right as if you don't chow down you could probably take half of your food home and finish enjoying it later in the day. That's to say the portions are generous.

Oh, for all of you oldies lovers - the music is pretty rockin' as well.

“They know Sandwiches!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

I decided to take a small day-trip to discover what is off of Highway 101going south. I made the right decision, yes I did! I got off Thousand Oaks Blvd. and just drove for about 10 minutes to this restaurant. Keep in mind, I almost turned around and went back on the freeway because I had only seen one shopping center after another or car dealerships. But I made a U-turn and went into this eatery and ordered a chicken sandwich. I could not have made it better myself... The bread alone was fresh, tasty and not too much like some Panini breads can be. And what was on the inside, amazing tender chicken, real fresh lettuce unlike some fast-food joints that serve the cheap and old type. I'm not really a mayonnaise person, but theirs is just Tasty.... And the drinks; U must try the cucumber-mint, lemonade or grapefruit...all done right!
