We stumbled across this place after our other plans didn't work out, and we were so glad we did. Prices were reasonable, pizza was very good, service was fast and friendly. 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.

The food is fantastic, I love the casual atmosphere, and the staff are always incredibly friendly. (only drawback: I wish they had more indoor dining)
