Have stopped here for breakfast often over the years when I'm in Ventura. They use fresh raw materials and make savory breakfasts. I usually get an omelet (say bacon and ham mixed), or corn beef hash. Have also enjoyed pancakes and waffles. All very savory. I get side of fresh cut fruit which is always fresh, not saved fro m...

Of the handful of dog friendly places in Ventura, this is one of the best. The patio is large enough that you don't have to thread through crowded tables with your dog on a leash, and they automatically bring a water dish. The food was good, and the portions were large. The waitress was great. The outdoor tables were clean.

Nine Juan Juan! It's a breakfast emergency...Or the name of a spicy favorite on their menu. Down-home, no frills good food and super friendly customer service. Gladys was adorable and such a joy that if I lived there, I'd go there all the time.

We stopped in at DW's on a Sunday morning, having been to Ventura numerous times and trying to eat on Sunday morning is usually a task. We checked Trip Advisor and DW's was near us so we gave it a try. The atmosphere is great, a true home style approach. The wait staff was inviting and the food was hot... More

Only open until 2 p.m. The just before closing lunch we had was good. The burger and fries were good. The waiter was friendly and attentive. They offer outside dining as well. Nothing fancy but good home cooking.

This is one of our favorite small diners in Ventura. The food is always good and the service is terrific. Just a nice neighborhood place where the waitress calls you sweetie and makes sure your coffee cup is full. One of my favorite dishes is their version of Eggs Benedict with avocado. The hollandaise sauce is perfect. I also love... More

I had breakfast here with a friend. The service was great and the food was what you'd expect at a diner like DW's. I had the Chicken Fried Steak which, again, wasn't bad but it didn't stand out at all. If you're looking for a Sunday breakfast spot with that traditional country diner feel, then this is the place for... More

We went for the first time and found this cafe to have have a good breakfast. Nothing extraordinary about it. It's all the same; eggs, biscuits, gravy, bacon, potatoes and toast as anywhere else. The service was friendly and helpful and the prices are fair. If you just need an breakfast, and you don't want to wash your own dishes,... More

Would you like to have a really good breakfast in Ventura? Then give DW's on South Victoria a try. Don't be fooled by the looks outside. The place is huge and really seats all the people from the cars in the parking lot! We were greeted quickly and shown to a nice booth. Coffee and menus came quick and so... More
