I absolutely love going to Cafe Nouveau for breakfast on a weekend, it is seriously one of the best breakfast spots in Ventura! The restaurant is hosted in a 1920s Spanish bungalow and even has an outdoor patio in a Mediterranean setting. It’s so gorgeous, it’s a must place to dine at! The restaurant does get packed very fast, it is that popular, so the earlier you can get there for secure a seat, the better! The staff is also super dependable, friendly and on top of it.
I usually order a 2 x 2 x 2 (eggs, bacon or sausage and buttermilk pancakes for $9.99) or an omlette, so this time I decided on the Mediterranean Omelette ($10.95), which has tomato, basil, garlic, artichoke hearts, green olives, pine nuts and feta cheese. I also ordered a side of their famous Sweet Potato Biscuits (which are to die for btw), hash browns and a cup of coffee. It was so incredibly tasty, I ate every bite!
