Breakfast – Wake Up Deliciously!

During COVID we are sorry to say we are not permitted to serve fresh food.  We have put our breakfasts and evening hors d’ouevres on the back burner, so to speak.  We do offer a complimentary bottle of red or white wine upon check-in.  Additionally, since we are across from an assortment of delicious restaurants, guests love bringing their food back to the Lavender Inn and dine either on our veranda, in the dining room or library, or in front of the fire.  We do not know when the culinary policies will change so we have left our information below.  Our guests have been very happy!

Wake up to our lavish but healthy breakfasts, one of THE best in Ojai Valley, featuring a daily array of cuisine! The ever changing menu includes a tasty egg main course – Market Fresh Frittata, Mediterranean eggs on polenta, Veggie Strata & other savory selections! Sundays are can be a smoked salmon and bagel bar with scrambled eggs or a breakfast Mexican morning burrito bar. The Potatoes Du Jour are always scrumptious! Each innkeeper has her own flair creating her healthy, hearty specialities.

Choose from a selection of house-made sweet baked goods or bakery breads for toast. Seasonal fruit, yogurt, and local Ocean Ranch Organic Granola are served daily. Fresh organic orange juice, a seasonal juice and locally roasted coffee are a mainstay for breakfast. Most of our herbs and vegetables are picked fresh from our organic garden or sourced from Ojai Farmers’ Market.

We love our local gardeners and vendors!  Ojai Valley is known for it’s prolific produce including Ojai Pixie tangerines and other citrus, avocados, walnuts, olive oil, and – ta-da: lavender!   We are proud to serve Ocean Ranch Organics Granola, Friends Ranch Pixies and Oranges, Regalo Olive Oil & Balsamics, Ojai Olive Oil, and other food items and flowers at Ojai’s Certified Organic Farmer’s Market.

Lavender Inn innkeepers are happy to accommodate vegetarians, vegans, dairy free, gluten free, and any other dietary needs you have – just let us know when you check in! Start your day with a leisurely breakfast on our veranda overlooking the gardens, listening to the mini-waterfall.

ALL this is complimentary! Be sure to bring your appetite!

 Tapas & Wine or Beer!

Due to Covid restrictions, we are not serving hors d’ouvres or craft beer.  We are able to offer you a complimentary bottle of wine to sip at your leisure. Just let us know prior to check-in or at check-in if you prefer red or white.  Cheers!!!

At the end of a day of adventure around Ojai, return to the Inn for your complimentary tapas and glass of wine, or you can select local craft beer for $5, all served daily 5p-6p. Our delicious offerings highlight seasonal, fresh ingredients mostly created in-house. Sip wine and savor your hors d’ouevres in one of our quiet corners in the garden or in front of the fireplace on chilly evenings. Or during the warmer months, enjoy local craft beer on tap in a chilled glass; our beer tap is located, for your convenience, on our veranda. We carry Ojai Brewery’s Pixie Pale Ale (Ojai in known for growing pixie oranges!), Topa Topa’s Chief’s Peak India Pale Ale, and Firestone Walker 805.  Ahhh, relax before you take off for dinner!
