Long wait but worth it!

Saturday brunch is well worth the wait at this place. I don't think I've ever eaten brunch so quickly! Buttery scrambled eggs, dreamy, crisp, light waffles and hearty buckwheat pancakes set you right for the day ahead. Great diner!!

Took my family to breakfast there. Popular place on weekends so we waited about 30 mins for a table. Totally worth it! Amazing home style breakfast and live bluegrass band playing as well. Very cute decor and great service.

We ate at Bonnie Lu's three mornings out of 3 in Ojai. Enough said. A nice, friendly fun place for breakfast. Great coffee and food. Fun atmosphere.

My Wife, Sharon and I were in Ojai for the weekend and had lunch at Bonnie Lu's. We met the owner Jenny, who named the restaurant after her Mother. She told us that with a certain gleam in her eye. Jenny also waited on us. She was fantastic, but you don't have to be served by the owner to get... More

We visited Bonnie Lu's in February of 2015 for Sunday breakfast. My chorizo and eggs was fantastic; spicy but not overpowering and not greasy. Her portobella mushroom quiche was outstanding; great crust and delicious filling. Best we have had in quite a while. Servers were helpful and attentive without being bothersome and seemed to sincerely want their guests to enjoy... More

It was Sunday after church. There was a good crowd but we were able to get right in and be seated. My husband ordered breakfast. He was hungry for biscuits & gravy so he ordered a plate with B&G, 1 egg & homestyle potatoes. He said it was very good. I ordered the green chili cheese burger with potato salad.... More

This is a busy café (which is a sign that the food is probably good!) and the food is prepared quickly and tastes great. Prices are reasonable. A great start to your day in Ojai!

We were enchanted by the simply decor, aromas of country cooking, and sweet attentive young server. Food was hearty, flavorful and bountiful ... You could not ask for a better place to start your morning in Ojai!

Excellent choice of traditional country style breakfast - diner style. Service was very attentive and friendly. Try it for some good old fashioned basic fare in a lovely retro environment.
