The setting is great, we ate outside. the atmosphere is friendly and welcoming. We ordered Tempeh burgers and the hummus plate. All were delicious, the vietnamese coffee with coconut creamer was a win!

I adore this place! The Indo Roll is my fave and their cookies are incredible. The food and setting are top notch. I'm always disappointed that they're closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

Went here with a vegan friend - and left very full and happy! I had the yummy mushroom soup and spring rolls. We ate in a lovely outdoor courtyard! We enjoyed tasty food in a lovely setting. I would go again in a heartbeat!

Visited the cafe for a late lunch with my husband on our first day in Ojai. Lots of options on the menu - we went for a burger with caramelised onions, and the humous, pitta and veg plate. All to share. All the food tasted very fresh. Staff were very friendly. Quick service too. Great prices too!

Arrived in Ojai first time, no idea where to eat, alone, wanted a light, healthy lunch and relaxed place to sit outside and read and eat. I had a Hummus wrap with caramelised onions and avocado added and a mixed green salad -- it was all fresh and delicious. They had a pretty big menu, and it all sounded really... More

My husband and I shared the reuben sandwich and a specialty coconut rice bowl, both of which were absolutely delicious. You order inside at the counter, and then can sit outdoors at any of the tables or picnic benches available. Our dog pretty much accompanies us everywhere, so we always appreciate outdoor seating options!

The food here was pretty good and in a nice atmosphere. Lots of choices. Many people seemed to enjoy the gigantic salads. We had hot meals which were nice. Very laid back and friendly. Walk up to the counter for service.

We loved it although we are not vegetarians! My daughter had the Hip Wrap and soup of the day (delicious & fragrant Dal), I had the 3-Scoop salad (small) with Tahini Poppyseed dressing, and we both had unsweetened house-made Chai iced tea (spicy and refreshing). Everything was very fresh & flavorful and the portions were generous. The spicy almond pate... More

tasty, wholesome food with flavor and substance. The music was horrendous and too loud. Out door seating preferred.

Went for lunch yesterday. It was fabulous. I had the black bean quesadilla that was yummy and came with a side salad that was a good size. My husband had the reuben and was delighted with it. We will definitely go back. The staff is super friendly.
