It all started in 2003 when owner Tom Holt realized there was a missing niche in the Ventura restaurant scene.
He wanted a great sandwich and salad – something different, while still being dedicated to delicious tasting food. He understood that every great sandwich starts with the freshest of bread, so he designed the cafe around a hearth oven. Working with his friend Pete, they came up with a bread recipe that was soft, delicious and baked right in front of your eyes. It didn’t stop there though, he created a menu centered around locally sourced ingredients, house-roasted meats, and crafted sauces to give each creation its own unique flavor.
We love being the place where friends, family and communities gather to celebrate and make memories over delicious food. Our passion is to have our guests walk out happy every time and keep them coming back for more. We want to be the place where you want to be!
