Cafe Amri of Oxnard

Standard

Ambience

-new-looking, despite being established
-very clean
-friendly staff
-indoor + outdoor seating
-booths & tables
-Rustic Italian feel
-several flat screen televisions with sports and news
Food
-VAST menu with large portions (3 pancakes option with most breakfast meals)
-Healthy options available
-Tea selection at the table adds a nice touch to the service
-I ordered the Chicken Fried Chicken: food was served hot, chicken was tender inside and crunchy outside- well balanced, enough butter on my toast, eggs not too oily. The gravy was mellow and peppery but reminded me of the store-bought stuff. The fruit was varied and fresh!
-On each table, there is a bottle of The Pepper Plant brand hot sauce: this California style sauce that’s the perfect combo of salt, pepper, jalapeño, garlic and red pepper. YUM!
Service
-Promptly greeted
-quick to offer sides and free add-ons (grilled jalapeños on the side)
-check-backs by the server are frequent but not annoying/incessant
Overall
 4/4 stars (despite the gravy). I’m not very generous in giving stars but rarely does one find such a clean, ambient, family-owned breakfast place with spot on service. All too often I go to places with good food and tired service or decent food and no service at all. Thumbs up to whoever did the hiring, definitely coming back!
