There is no shortage of casual dining choices in the Conejo Valley. The challenge is that 95% of them are at best, mediocre, and this does not include the fast food options, which are a deadly combination of bad and unhealthy. One hidden gem is the Pure Energy Café at the Bay Club in Thousand Oaks. It’s “hidden” because it is tucked away off of Willow Road inside the refurbished and under new ownership, the Bay Club Company.
As members at this facility for over 10 years, we know firsthand that compared to its predecessor, the Pure Energy Café reflects a complete upgrade in environment, service and quality. Their varied menu of fresh, high-quality selections for breakfast, lunch or dinner can be enjoyed by both Bay Club members and nonmembers alike.
Located just inside the front entrance to the club, for casual healthy fare the Pure Energy Café beats out most of what you can get anywhere else in their part of Thousand Oaks and Westlake Village. The breakfast burrito, eggs, turkey bacon, guacamole, spinach and salsa was enough for two people, but of course, I ate the whole thing. I am a breakfast eater and it was delicious. Then I skipped lunch. The banana multi-grain pancakes were yummy too, and guilt free because I just finished a workout.
The Pure Energy Café also has power drinks, fresh juices, burgers, entrees and salads (Robin’s favorite is the chicken arugula salad). The Pure Energy Café also offers group catering and the Bay Club offers meeting room facilities. Contact café owners Fernando Ceron or Rodrigo Padilla, or Bay Club Area Manager Anastasia Alexander for more information, or just stop by and grab a bite to eat.
The Bay Club Pure Energy Café is located at 2400 Willow Lane in Thousand Oaks. For more information, visit BayClubs.com/ThousandOaks or call 805.778.0888.
