We stayed at the Ventura Marriott and ask the front desk for breakfast recommendation. Could not have been happier! Cute little hometown place with yummy food! Highly recommend :-)

We can in for eggs, and we ended up with Jambalaya! They custom made an egg dish for us too. Steaming hot food. Casual cafe environment.

I've been eating at this restaurant and their other locations for over 15 years, and I'll tell you why...the Steve's special (chili, cheese, sour cream on scrambled eggs and hashbrowns). That, and the awesome friendly staff always keeps the coffee flowing. Love this place!

My husband spotted the restaurant as we drove into town Friday night and was adamant we should eat here one day, after reading the reviews we thought breakfast was the best option. We were not disappointed. We had a 20 minute wait but this is to be expected mid morning on a Sunday. Anyway, onto the food. We decided on... More

We had a great meal. You can't go wrong. Cuisine is Cajun fusion. The portions are very generous. You'll probably take a box home. The back patio was very comfortable. Inside a bit cramped and noisy. The beignets went uneaten as the meals were huge. They would be best with coffee only.

Fantastic Food! Went a second time the next day because it was incredibly good. It was crowded but still a good atmosphere. Not the cheapest I've ever been but worth the price by miles!

Wow, New Orleans in Ventura! Great tasty portion of red beans and rice. A meal in itself. A large biscuit that is so moist and very good. My husband had the jambalaya. Lots of big chunks of seafood with the cornbread. Very good. The waitress was very friendly and did a great job. There is parking right in front. A... More
