A Guide to Ojai Coffee Shops
Near and dear to the heart of downtown, Beacon is one of the most aesthetically gifted coffee shops in Ojai, given its warm earthy tones set against minimalistic white walls, live-edge communal workbenches, vibrant plants, wood panel-wrapped front counter, windows that let the sunshine pour on through, scrumptious homemade pastries (gluten-free and vegan options available), and tantalizing aroma of gourmet java that’s been diligently roasted in-house. The attention to detail that has gone into designing this adorable abode with a delightful balance of charm and utility makes it an easy go-to for daytime meetings with colleagues, long overdue coffee dates, and solo study sessions.
Family owned and operated since 1995, Ojai Coffee Roasters offers guests a wholesome ambiance underscored by comfy armchairs, wooden tabletops, art-adorned walls, touches of greenery, and amenities for a productive day. The warmly familiar decor serves as an accomplice to thoughtfully crafted, rewardingly delicious coffee beverages made using house-roasted Arabica beans.
Nestled in Meiners Oaks, Coffee Connection is a relaxed pillar of the community with ample seating arrangements, beautiful art pieces, an outdoor patio, and the steady background hum of neighbors gathering under one roof. The friendly folks behind the counter maintain a tempting selection of tasty coffee beverages, as well as help out where they can by hosting food drives for the local food pantry and selling merchandise for the high school ceramics program.
What this adorable little shop around the corner from Libbey Park may lack in size, it more than makes up for with wholesome hospitality, a huge selection of whole bean coffee and loose leaf tea, and earnestly stocked shelves showcasing crafty gifts such as mugs, teapots, and cards.
Nestled inside a cute cottage just off the main drag, LOVE Social Cafe provides patrons a refined yet relaxed culinary experience accentuated by gram-worthy brunch fare ranging from breakfast burritos and tacos to artisan sandwiches and scrumptious pastries. Whether you’d like to settle into a cozy corner and appreciate the company of loved ones over a steamy cup of joe, dine al fresco with your furry four-legged companion on the picturesque garden patio, or grab a high-quality pick-me-up before exploring the area, whatever the case may be, this beloved gem has got you covered.
