This is an iconic Ojai restaurant where locals gather to relax, meet, and enjoy good cafe food. Plenty of visitors for this place on a side street, too, and it seems like everybody just starts chatting and the locals help the out-of-towners find their way around. Service is good and the food is terrific. Very clean and comfortable.

The food and service was first rate and we enjoyed ourselves tremendously. I'm real tired of having to do a certain number of characters--tiresome.

Coffe Emp. is a great go to place. Always good coffee and a huge menu selection. The bakery in the front is a great stop in spot as well.

Luckily, the food was palatable because the service was horrible. Once we were seated (which was immediately as there was barely anyone else there), it took approximately 30 minutes to get our food. Our waitress didn't even bother to come and tell us why there was a delay. She didn't even bring our food out, a bus-boy brought it. We won't be going back.
