Nice friendly staff. Very busy on Easter Sunday so service was a tad slow. Waffles w blueberries, strawberries and bananas on top were a yum special order. BLT was delicious too! Good strong coffee. A great place to stop for breakfast, brunch or lunch!

One of the truly great 50's type breakfast restaurants. The food is to die for and they serve everything you can imagine from down home biscuits and gravy to fancy crepes. They treat everyone like royalty with free hot coffee or cocoa while you wait to be seated (the place is always packed on weekends). The once a month band... More

We had breakfast here and we were happy with the variety of breakfast items. They were able to customize any item for ur dietary needs. The wait staff works as a team and they are very polite and helpful. Good home cooking.

Cozy, good vibes breakfast joint. The atmosphere was so welcoming and comfortable. It would be easy to relax, drink coffee and chat with the waitresses all morning long, but this is a busy place! The pancakes and eggs were delicious. The fresh blueberries were amazing.

The Ojai Arcade has only one themed diner and this is it. You'll be made to feel right at home and the comfort food comes out in sizable portions at reasonable prices. The coffee refills are dialed in too. Not fine French cuisine... it's All-American through and through. The regulars can attest to the consistent quality of the food and... More

This feels like a home town cafe. Breakfast, served up until they close (2:30pm), nothing necessarily special, but it's good food and will fill you up. It feels really good to eat lunch here. It's a small place, and it's usually pretty full, so make sure you get there with some time if you need to wait for a table.... More

We saw the reviews of this spot and they were spot on! We sat up at the bar and the service was friendly and fast and the food was excellent. Our timing was perfect as we were immediately seated but within 5 minutes there was a 20-30 minute wait.

Fifties-style bustling place for lunch. It’s a big place for breakfast, and the lunch menu has many interesting choices. My wife had the steak sandwich which was a delicious and tender steak cut not shaved steak. I had a turkey-bacon club. Both served with excellent sides; a tasty potato salad and a cole slaw. There’s always a line waiting, and... More
