I just happened upon this. It's inconspicuous and set back a little on a corner. The staff is very friendly and warmly greets you. I ordered a standard breakfast: two eggs over medium, bacon, potatoes, coffee and muffin. Not one thing was overdone, cold, too...More

Have stopped here for breakfast often over the years when I'm in Ventura. They use fresh raw materials and make savory breakfasts. I usually get an omelet (say bacon and ham mixed), or corn beef hash. Have also enjoyed pancakes and waffles. All very savory....More

Nine Juan Juan! It's a breakfast emergency...Or the name of a spicy favorite on their menu. Down-home, no frills good food and super friendly customer service. Gladys was adorable and such a joy that if I lived there, I'd go there all the time.

Only open until 2 p.m. The just before closing lunch we had was good. The burger and fries were good. The waiter was friendly and attentive. They offer outside dining as well. Nothing fancy but good home cooking.

I had breakfast here with a friend. The service was great and the food was what you'd expect at a diner like DW's. I had the Chicken Fried Steak which, again, wasn't bad but it didn't stand out at all. If you're looking for a...More
