Paradise Pantry

Here is why it’s called Paradise Pantry …

Restaurant. Scrumptious grilled sandwiches, the freshest, most beautiful and delicious salads. Cheese plates and all kinds of appetizers leading to dessert. Seasonally sourced product from local vendors. Weekly specials by Chef Kelly are lead by the always popular Kel’s Killer Mac.

Delicious Weekend Dinner Specials beg for local vintage wine.

Renown for their Winemaker Dinners that pair a favorite vintner with an all original menu created by Chef Kelly.

Cheese Counter. Over 400 kinds and free samples, always. Add the charcuterie with house-made pickles and cured olives. Platters available for all occasions.

Wine Shop. Biodynamic, small batch and a real “find” delivered to the Paradise Pantry customer with all the stories that Wine Curator Tina can tell about each vintage. Buy a bottle and drink it with your meal. Take some home. Enjoy our Weekly Wine Flight. Join our excellent Wine Club.

Artisan Market. Supporting all the local, organic and just plain amazing producers from Ventura and around who make products our customers love — chocolate, nut butters and jellies, wine gear, et cetera.

Owners Chef Kelly Briglio and Wine Curator Tina Thayer created one of the first restaurants in Ventura County to showcase cheese and wine pairings.

Their dream of Paradise Pantry has grown every year since 2007, now becoming the ultimate cheese and wine mecca for downtown Ventura and the favorite destination for delicious, nourishing, fresh food and great wine.
