Best Places to Eat: OJAI

Summit Drive-In

(805) 229-0030 • 12689 Ojai Rd, Ojai, CA 93023

This is just down Highway 150 (towards Ojai), past the fire station. DELICIOUS food-- burgers, shakes, fries, etc. Their breakfast burritos are amazing! Call for hours. And if you get to meet the owner (Dave), tell him Jill Cox recommended you! Great guy, great place.

Boccalli's Pizza & Pasta

(805) 646-6116 • 3277 E Ojai Ave, Ojai, CA 93023

Boccalli's is at the bottom of the Dennison grade as you're driving toward Ojai. This place has the best strawberry shortcake known to mankind. Their restaurant is a local hangout with great pizza and delicious salads and pasta dishes. Love the outdoor setting with the heaters at night. Fun place!

Papa Lennon's

(805) 640-7388 • 515 W El Roblar Dr, Ojai, CA 93023

Unbelievably delicious pizza, but I LOVE their Chinese Wonton Salad (of all things, ha!) This is another local hangout that is fun to visit. Great outdoor patio.

Sea Fresh Sea Food

(805) 646-7747 • 533 E Ojai Ave, Ojai, CA 93023

If you like sea food, this is the place to visit in Ojai. Recently remodeled with a beautiful front patio with heaters.

The Ranch House

(805) 646-2360 • 102 Besant Rd, Ojai, CA 93023

OK, a little pricey, but if you're celebrating anything, this is the place. Tucked away in a spot the tourists don't usually find, this restaurant has a beautiful setting-- especially when the Wysteria is in bloom. Great food. But, yeah, expensive.

Ojai Beverage Company

(805) 646-1700 • 655 E Ojai Ave, Ojai, CA 93023

These guys are definitely a place that nobody visiting knows about. The restaurant is at the back, and downstairs, and has the most delicious seasoned fries and burgers anywhere! Really good prices, too! Locals love it.

Jimmy's Pub

(855) 697-8780 • 905 Country Club Rd, Ojai, CA 93023

This is a sports grill tucked away at the Ojai Valley Inn. GORGEOUS surroundings, top notch. We go here to watch the Super Bowl almost every year. Love their homemade potato chips, which are bottomless. Food is a little pricey, but we usually split something cuz we're so full from the chips, ha. Just walking to the pub from the parking lot is worth going. Sooo beautiful, especially in the evening!

Bonnie Lu's

(805) 646-0207 • 328 E Ojai Ave, Ojai, CA 93023

No trip to Ojai is complete without eating breakfast at this throwback diner. Absolute sweet people work there, and the food is very good. Great place to go before walking through the town.

Best Places for COFFEE: OJAI

Ojai Coffee Roasting Co.

(805) 646-4478 • 337 E Ojai Ave, Ojai, CA 93023

Love this place. Quite the local hangout. Delicious coffee, sandwiches, salads, bakery items. Nice place in a great location, central to town.

Beacon Coffee Company

(805) 646-0207 • 211 W Ojai Ave, Ojai, CA 93023

Fairly new coffee shop, good coffee, nice ambience. Nice place to read or study.
