What a great breakfast place. Besides all the ladies being super friendly, their food is phenomenal. They took great care of us, very prompt food delivery and large portions that were delicious.

Read about this place from trip advisor and reviews were right! Great food and excellent service. Kim was a delight. Small gem that can get real busy but worth the wait!

We had breakfast here and it was great. Service was nice, coffee a little weak, but adequate. Retro look (think late 50's early 60's)

Great food, extremely nice staff and wonderful diner experience. Two of s had the steak and eggs, which were really great and my wife had the egg white Shelly's Veggie omelette, which she loved. See pic attached. Next visit tomorrow, the super secret chili omelette.

We arrived at Bonnie Lu's just before noon midweek after a stay at the Ojai Inn and Spa. What a pleasant surprise! I had the eggs benedict and my wife opted for the patty melt.
