Cafe Emporium is a very inviting place for breakfast with both indoor and outdoor seating where morning bike riders gather to meet. My lox and bagels platter was excellent and large enough to split, which I did. My wife enjoyed her "senior" breakfast of egg, pancake, bacon, toast and coffee, all for only $8. Adjacent to the restaurant is a... More

This place had great food but what made this place memorable to me was the amazing boysen berry scone! We added a little butter which melted into the warm scone. It became a little piece of grandma's baking!

There is an extensive breakfast menu as well as a interesting lunch menu. I had an omelet that was tasty, prepared perfectly, and presented artfully. While this place calls... More

We actually tried a breakfast place on the main road but it was packed so we walked over to Ojai Cafe Emporium, which had plenty of room and... More

Went to a tasting at the Ojai Vineyard and this was across the street. It was also pouring rain so we didn't want to drive far. The food was good but kind of expensive.
