My wife and I visit this cafe every time we are in Ventura. They have an amazing balsamic onion pizza. They even have a avocado martini that’s quite delicious. You’ll enjoy eating here and having a couple drinks.

Great place with great service! Classic meals and wonderful specials every night. If you hit it just right you will be entertained by rotating bands that is a perfect blend of dinner music that can entice you to stick around for a while.

Eight of us went here for happy hour. The $7 margarita is excellent. We had a few pizzas and a few sliders. All were really really good. Nice place for an easy delicious dinner. Service was awesome.

Obviously a local favorite diner type family restaurant with a bar-lounge area-however the bar is VERY limited. Food is fresh and well prepared. Nothing really fancy, but excellent breakfasts with pleasant servers.

We've eaten here many times over several years. It's a favorite every time we visit Ventura. The food is always very good & so is the service. The desserts are great too, unfortunately. We always return.
