I like to support "mom and pop" eating establishments as an alternative to going to Starbucks. That's why I chose to have breakfast here.

First the generally positive. The establishment is nice. They is a large, airy area directly in front where people can eat. Inside I found it a little claustrophobic. But it was clean.

I'm very picky when it comes to wait staff, as they set the tone for the visit. Because I'm somewhat of a counter-culture kind of person, who wears bandanas and is quite casual, I use myself as a barometer on how people treat me as my measurement on how the wait staff responds to their customers.

The gal at the counter, a pudgy little thing with purple hair, made it a point to show her displeasure at my entering the establishment. The ironic thing is that after working thirty years as a special education teacher, I probably make more than she does via my pension in a month, than she makes in a year full time. It shows that you should never judge a book by it's cover.

I found her attitude snippy and unfriendly. For this reason alone, I would never come back here, nor would I recommend this place to anyone. I ordered a milk and what I thought was a cinnamon roll. I had the cinnamon roll heated. Usually, this means it will come out soft and chewy. In this case it came out hard and crunchy. Luckily for me I ordered milk.

The wi-fi signal is good, and even though I was here for quite a while catching up on my reviews and such. nobody asked me to leave to make room for other patrons.

I would recommend that the owner of this coffee shop teach their clue-less millennial staff, the importance of good customer service. Not just to the mainstream side of society, but those of us who choose to live a different way, as well.

Found this place by happen chance as other bakeries were closed on Tuesdays. Service was sketchy. I ordered a empanata and got it quickly as just out of the oven. My friends ordered fruit, granola on yogurt; and the other bacon and eggs. I finished my food by the time theirs arrived. Seems like they were confused with the numbers and orders for breakfast. Can eat outside in a garden area.

Ordered PB bar and cheesecake to go. The counter staff simply DUMPED both in a small single container making a huge mess. Price - too expensive, taste - nothing to pop up. Giving it a try again ? - No thank you.

We love strolling and shopping in our beautiful little city of Ventura, CA. Not long ago my wife and discovered this coffee shop on Chestnut St. It is a cozy little shop with a great cup of mocha and pastries to choose from. It also has a nice space outside to sit if you had rather be outside people watching or enjoying Ventura's wonderful climate. It is also a bakery and has sandwich's. Give it a try, I don't think you will be disappointed!
