“My opinion”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

Cute place, but for a coffee house the coffee choices seem very limited. Gavina is not my idea of exceptional coffee.

“Great little coffee house with gorgeous patio!”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

This is one of my favorite coffee houses in So. Cal. Whenever I drive to Ojai from Los Angeles, which is at least once a month, I always stop in for a coffee, and usually a sandwich and soup. They make all their own pastries, soups and sandwiches, and it's really good! Another favorite of mine is their blueberry bran muffin, yum!

The ambiance is peaceful and cozy both inside and out. The outside patio is absolutely gorgeous and peaceful. Large, terraced and wonderfully appointed, with different styles of tables and chairs under two huge, magnificent old trees -- a Chinese elm and a California oak tree. Plants and fountains everywhere. The owner, Dave, and his wife, take great pride in there creation and it shows. Staff is always friendly, the surroundings immaculate, and it's just a wonderful place to relax with a great cup of coffee or tea and/or food!

“Wonderful coffee and atmosphere with a fun twist”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

Went to Fulll od Beans in search of wifi with coffee and food being of secondary concern. Found delicious coffee (my favorite being,a rich, cold mocha brew generously topped with whipped cream), satisfying food (tmy favorite being Dave's chili, but quiche and stuffed croissants were also tasty abd filling), a soothing garden out back where live blues is served up on weekend afternoons and engaging conversation, of you feel like talking, with Dave, Beans'' gracious and entertaining host. What makes Beans unique, though, is that it is biker friendly. Though Full of Beans serves up everyrhing one would expect of a traditional coffee house - quiche, croissants, tortillas stuffed with alfalfa and other fillings, and chai - it welcomes bikers (Dave owns 3 Harley Davidson motorcycles), and sets asides prime motorcycle parking space. To accommodate hearty appetites, Beans serves up a meaty chili sure to satisfy a big appetite. In shirt, Full of Beans offers something for everyone, reasonable prices - and the blues are real.
