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. Both meals were absolutely delicious! The wait staff acts in concert and thus our service was terrific. All three that served us were attentive, happy,... More

What a great spot in Ojai! I found Bonnie Lu's on "Groupon" and took friends there one weekend. Homespun hospitality, solid and tasty breakfast fare on Sunday at noon, plus wait staff that worked well together and joshed and had fun while working. I had a great mimosa, and could tell that locals were the mainstay of this business, always... More

We have eaten here twice and both times it was great. My husband had the chicken fried steak with country biskets and gravy. He was impressed that they make the steak fresh, not frozen from a vendor. The gravy is tasty, and the hash browns cooked perfectly. I had the vegie eggs benedict, which was awesome. The eggs were cooked... More

We had a party of 8 for breakfast and the service was fast and friendly and the food was cooked to order perfectly. The waitress even remembered me from the day before when I had stopped in for a beverage. I had the veggie eggs Benedict which was very good, and and the prices were very fair. The decor is... More

The Shelly's omelette was good, the coffee was good, the decor was great, and the prices reasonable. The service was friendly but SLOW. One person gave us the menus, 10 minutes later another finally took our order. Meal took awhile to come (wasn't busy at the time). The icing on the cake was the waitress who cleared our table did...

Been going here for years - good breakfasts, but get there early, as they are very crowded. Substantial plates of regular food, staff that cares, but they are very busy. If it's Sunday, go out the back door to visit the farmers market after you eat!

Good comfort food in a very friendly setting. People were so friendly and service excellent. Couldn't have asked for a better place to eat breakfast and begin our day.

Friendly service and a relaxed atmosphere make this a pleasant spot in Ojai. Being right on Ojai Ave. in the arcade makes it a good place to start the day before wandering through the nearby shops and beautiful Libbey Park. I love their simple offerings of bacon, potatoes, and eggs as well as their more creative menu choices. Good food... More
