Healthy Food Bloggers I Love

Hot Spot: Cafe Nouveau

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.

Hot Spot: Lure Fish House

When my parents were in town a couple weeks ago, I wanted (ok, needed) to take them to Lure Fish House in Ventura for dinner. I absolutely adore coming here for their drinks and fresh seafood. The place is always packed, no matter what hour it is. It's that popular and the staff is always [...]

Know Your SoCal Cities and Explore

I have a question for born and raised Southern California residents that I just cannot figure out since I came here 7 years ago: Why don't you know where cities are in the region? I'm not saying you are all like this, but I feel like a majority of the people I talk to don't [...]

My parents came into town from Florida during Easter Weekend, so on Saturday I decided to take them to my favorite Mexican restaurant in Ventura County: Agave Maria's in Ojai. According to their website, Agave Maria’s was established in the early 60s in downtown Ojai and renovated in 2010 under new owners. I love the establishment because [...]
