Ojai is a cool little town above Ventura. It feels like old time California must have felt like. Like Topanga Canyon in the 70s. There are some terrific finds to be had in a town like this. Papa Lennon's is one, and it's lunch menu is a joy. The caprese appetizer was right on the money. Various wraps are big... More

A quaint restaurant with a lovely outdoor patio. Great traditional pizzas and paninis. I had the roasted veggie panini and my friend had the Mediterranean pizza and both were excellent. They also have free Wifi.

The ambiance on the patio was delightful and it was fun hanging out there and people-watching. The highlight for us though was the music; Tom Lennon was playing his... More

This is a nice local place with the most beautiful outdoor dining area in the Ojai Valley. It is a small lovely space with a fountain amidst shady greenery. You order at the counter and they bring the food to the table. The prices are high but the food is good.

Sat outside in the shade after ordering Thai Chicken salad. The salad was the best and very fresh. Menu prices are very reasonable. Order and counter and staff delivers your order. This great eatery also has indoor seating. Very good

I generally have the salads there and the Beatnik salad is awesome with chicken. Pizzas I have only had the gluten free and soy cheese - which was ok - but probably would be amazing with real crust and cheese. :-)

I ate here with a group from a weekend retreat. We pre-ordered and the food was ready for us when we arrived. The food looked gourmet. Had great flavor and the outdoor seating was relaxing.
