“Not so sure”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

I see two pictures and the yellow house is not what I am fimilar with. The coffee shop style resturant near the government center is what I am reviewing. I have heard from severalpeople, my grandparents and parents and others that they love this place. I have been three of four times and have never been impressed. The last time I went was for breakfast. I wanted to order corn beef and hash and when I asked the staff she said it was out of a can so I picked an omlette. It was so average. The mushrooms seemed like they were out of a can as well instead of fresh. Ventura has a mushroom farm in town. Stay away from canned items! The staff seems fairly friendly but I would spend my money elsewhere.

“Nice hidden gem”
Reviewed December 13, 2012 via mobile

This is very nice place that serves really good food. It has this small country feel that keeps its decor up with the season / holidays. Breakfast is nice a quiet with a weekday morning sunrise special from 6am - 10 am at $5.95. It's a a good value.

Because this place is located next to the Ventura County Government Center, which houses the court house, county jail and the administration building I can imagine this place getting a little busy during lunch time.

Either way, it's worth a visit if your in the area and looking for a nice place to dine.

“Home away from Home”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

This little cafe is a quaint place for a nice meal that has good value and charm. They change their decor every season so it feels like you just entered into the season of Christmas, Thanksgiving, St. Patricks Day, Valentines and Easter when you visit during that time.

“great food, prices and outstanding service”
Reviewed June 16, 2011

A family restaurant, large selection of home cooked foods, generous portions. Food was excellent. Had a crustless quiche with fruit and fresh baked muffin, one time. A spinach salad with grilled chicken, feta cheese and hot bacon dressing, with muffin another time. Delicious. Very fair prices. And the wait staff was attentive and very kid friendly. Would go there every week
