The only thing absolutely French about this place is the attitude and rudeness of the owner working behind the counter. One of the MODT expensive places in town and for WHAT???? Having lived in France I know what a place like this should be and this ain't it. Save your money...get a baguette from the Nead bakery, some great cheese... More

We stopped to get a couple of sandwiches for the road. After a lecture about the quality of the limited selections, we were "treated" to chicken tarragon sandwiches that were comprised of ground up chicken and impossible to eat without them becoming a leaking mess. They then compounded the situation by giving us incorrect directions to Santa Monica. Please look... More

I suppose we had walked past this gem several times and never really noticed it--it is small, and closes in the afternoon most days (open for dinner on Fri and Sat) . . . but something caught our eye and we went in one day. Boy are we glad we did. Everything we had was excellent. It is very much... More

When stopping in for a quick bite, I discovered I was the only "out-of towner" in the place - which is always a good sign; as the locals are often "in the know" as to where to go for a selection of food just a abit different than normal and yet also reasonable. This is a small deli and shop... More

The town needs a good sandwich shop. This is not it. Also, service with a snarl not a smile. I've made the mistake going there twice and both times the same...food not good or fresh...attitude disturbing.

Stopped to grab a sandwich to share, but they had very different salads so I had the orzo, basil, olive salad. Very yummy.

Very good lunch for the price but our entrees needed a bit more spice to make the food great. Nice service, too.

An Ojai friend positively raves about this place as do most reviews. And, I've had hot and cold appetizers and desserts all at an event of an Ojai friend which was catered by this cafe. I must say that everything was all quite delicious. However, I've never actually EATEN in the little cafe---though it is adorable visually including the oil... More
