For an authentic Ojai experience, we highly recommend the Farmer and the Cook restaurant. The food is wholesome, fresh and vegetarian based. Everything on their menu is delicious, including the baked goods made from scratch. I wish there were more plant based restaurants like this...More

A cafe-market-bakery-salad bar serving Mexican food using organic chiles, tomatoes and tomatillos grown at the farm. The tortillas are handmade and the sangria is topped with local Ojai citrus. Quite a few vegan, raw and gluten-free offerings; everything else is vegetarian. Lovely outdoor patio with a striped green awning and a view of the mountains.
