This is my favorite little town and I always stop here first and once again before I start my drive back home. They have a huge selection of merchandise, although I find them to be on the pricier side. This little town feels like I'm stepping back in time and if I could live here, I would!

Friendly, smiling staff serves up quality coffee drinks and a killer chai latte. I asked for a soy substitute . . . "no problem", with a big grin and fast service. But the best part: out of this world lemon tart. Creamy smooth, flavorful and fresh. Gelato was good too. Quaint old school coffee shop feel with gifts and cards... More

As soon as we walked up to the Gelato we were greeted and helped. The gentleman was super nice and offered us samples . Gelato was super delicious. Great place to visit.

Excellent pastry and more including donuts for your gluten free folks. There is also Gelato for the hot days and lots of fun gifts for your buddies. Give the locals... More

I stumbled into this coffee shop by accident while walking around Ventura. I went in intending to order a tea but the gelato looked so creamy and the tasters were so delicious that I walked out with that instead. I ordered two scoops in a cup. One was creme brûlée and the other was pistachio. Both were very flavorful and... More

Try their Lavender Mocha. You won't be disappointed! Next time I'm in Ventura, I'll be back for sure.

This place has a great variety of coffees and pastries. I tried the Redeye and it lived up to its name. They also sell Gellatos. The coffee is a bit on the pricey side.

What a beautiful establishment. Loved the exposed brick. I can only imagine the history in these buildings. This was a great place to get a cup of coffee and relax in the outdoor seating area and enjoy the beautiful weather.

A must see in Ventura! Great coffee & tea, fabulous baked goods and fun little kitchen shop, with unique local souvenirs. Places to sit and hang out, or get it to go. You won’t be sorry you stopped in!
