Vesta Ojai Home and Hearth

242 E Ojai Ave., Ojai CA 93023 [map]

The name Vesta, the Roman Goddess of Hearth and Home, was suggested by a friend as a representation of the warm, welcoming feeling Debbie Curry envisioned for her enterprise. Vesta’s location in the center of the Ojai Arcade, which was formerly Tottenham Court, was perfect. Improving upon the casual elegance of the interior space was a natural for Debbie with her flair for color and design. Vesta offers Ojai residents and visitors an inviting atmosphere in both its home accessories and culinary offerings.

Bringing 30 years of food and beverage experience and a menu that would satisfy everyone from vegetarian to the hungry hamburger fan, Debbie's sister Lisa gladly joined the Vesta family. Vesta offers a “never say no” attitude to food service with the aim to please each and every guest. Vesta also offers catering, wedding and party-planning services, freshly baked goods and soon to come, Debbie’s famous chocolates.

Reviews from Publications and Diners

We went to Vesta today for lunch and were so disappointed. The food was mediocre at best, the service was the slowest I've ever witnessed and truly we will never be back. We had been once before and tried to give it a second chance (the first time wasn't good either). I think they need to improve on the wait staff and flavor the food a bit better. Glad you had a good lunch Tyler but we won't be going there ever again.

Vesta Ojai has quickly established itself as one of the best luncheries in Ojai. Try a panini, perhaps albacore or grilled vegetable, with the sweet potato fries. Or hope that the seared, pepper-crusted ahi tuna salad, gently accompanied with seaweed salad and a hint of fennel, is the special of the day.
