This place had great food but what made this place memorable to me was the amazing boysen berry scone! We added a little butter which melted into the warm scone. It became a little piece of grandma's baking!

Stopped in here to have a late breakfast while visiting downtown Ojai. There is an outside terrace as well as the indoor space. I chose to eat indoors. Coffee arrived promptly. There is an extensive breakfast menu as well as a interesting lunch menu. I had an omelet that was tasty, prepared perfectly, and presented artfully. While this place calls... More

Delicious breakfast menu. Not stuffy or fussy. Homecooked meals and sides and a relaxed comfortable feel. My boyfriend and I stopped here for breakfast the other weekend while we drove through Ojai. We actually tried a breakfast place on the main road but it was packed so we walked over to Ojai Cafe Emporium, which had plenty of room and... More

Went to a tasting at the Ojai Vineyard and this was across the street. It was also pouring rain so we didn't want to drive far. The food was good but kind of expensive. I guess that's to be expected in Ojai? I like that they had a la carte items like plain chicken breast and steamed veggies. service was... More

Not sure what happened. The food just does not taste as good as recently as late last year. The service is really inconsistent. We used to come regularly for breakfast, but not any longer. At least they still take reservations and their baked goods are top notch.

We really liked the place but it took 20 minutes to get our order. they said it was because of a big to-go order so maybe. I don't see that any other reviewers complained about the wait, so it was probably a one-time thing. We enjoyed lunch and they were quite accommodating about food limitations -- gluten free, no dairy... More
