“Start your trip up the coast here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Allison's is a bit on the small side, so the wait on weekends is a given, but worth it. Parking in front (on the street) is low probability but there's almost always room in back. Everything on the menu is well worth a taste and you can buy a jar of the excellent Raspberry jam to take home.
We are retired, so weekday breakfasts work best for us

“Love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

Do not pass up the biscuits and gravy! Their food is spectacular for the breakfast lover! The chile verde omelet is so good. Makes my mouth water at the thought of it. The weekend specials are just as enticing. If you're in ventura, don't miss it.

“Delicious breakfasts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

Allison's is the best place for breakfast! The food is fresh and well-prepared. The biscuits with their homemade raspberry jam are great. They also serve the best side of fresh fruit. There is always a wait on weekends, so bring the newspaper and your appetite.

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

This is a great place for breakfast, the portions are huge and the taste is pretty good. We've been there numerous times and it has never failed.....I've read the slow service reviews and that has never happened once to us.

“Looking for a good breakfast place?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

Let me start by saying I've only eaten here for breakfast so I can not speak about their lunch. This has to be one of the better breakfast places in Ventura. I do not recall ever having a bad experience with any in of the items on thier breakfast menu. The food is really good with the biscuits and homemade jam being thier signature item. The portions are decent and the service is always pleasant. The restaurant is small and narrow with limited seating. The morning rush on the weekend tends to cause long lines. Averge wait on a weekend morning can be 30-45 minutes. This is one of my favorite places and considering the limited amount of decent restaurants in Ventura County, this is one of the better ones around. If you are ever in the area, this is worth the visit.
