The location was exactly what I envisioned in visiting southern California. The outside patio was bright. The atmosphere was relaxed and the locals were eager to meet visitors. The coffee was good and they had drinks outside of coffee such as soft drinks and orange juice.

Over the years this has been a go-to place for us. We still enjoy the atmosphere, but the coffee has gone down hill. Drinks are poorly balanced, coffee is bitter-both brewed and espresso. Sad to see this place lose its quality.

We met a group here on the lovely back patio, which has lots of different seating areas for the single diner, couples or groups. The inside was nice and had a welcoming feel too. Great place to hang out and have some coffee or tea. They also offer other types of beverages including dessert types like shakes, smoothies and root... More

This is the coffee house we always go to when we want to hang out. They have some good food selections available and make our coffee just right. The best part of the place is the spacious, back patio. Each seating area has it's own style and personality. It reminds me of a patio you might see in San Francisco,... More

Not a Starbucks gal, so when I discovered Full of Beans I was elated and every time I go to Ojai, where for the day or weekend a stop at Full of Beans is a must.

I enjoy going here with a few of my friends, where we can have a coffee, a smoothie, cake or food, and set for as long as we want and not feel rushed or crowded out. The outdoor patio is nice depending on the weather.

The front of this place does not do it justice. It has a lovely little outdoor patio back behind the building that is the perfect place for a cup of coffee or nice visit with friends. I don't drink coffee, but I like a nice place to kick back, grab a cup of tea with a few friends. On the... More

Been there on more than one occasion for cake and coffee. When I first saw the building, I thought it was a place to get baked beans. Haha. I rode in on my first visit on the back of one of my boyfriend's Harley. He surmised that it was biker friendly by the motorcycle parking in the front. Designed with... More

As local residents in the Ojai Valley, we have tiried this coffee house many many times. Its a small Valley and I believe in giving business to the local, non-chain stores. But after several small snippy comments from the owner and one counter person in particular, we have given up on FOB and no longer go in. The coffee is... More

Coffee was good, their treats looked and tasted nice and the surroundings outside were quirky and comfortable.
