Came here for brunch and our party was really pleased with the food. Portions were fair, and the quality was very good. The Monte Cristo was cooked well, and the sides were yummy. My friend's burger was also very good. Service was pleasant and although the restaurant was full and noisy, the atmosphere was lively. We enjoyed our brunch a... More

My son and I have had breakfast here before but last Saturday was especially disappointing. I ordered eggs Benedict and every aspect of it was overdone. The muffin was burnt, the egg was hard boiled, the meat was so overcooked it curled, and only a drizzle of hollindasie. My son's pancake was underdone. The hash browns "to go" were burnt... More

A short walk from our hotel (Su Nido). Get there before 9:00 if you don't want to wait long on the weekends. We sat at the counter, ate some good food, and enjoyed the musical trio. Who doesn't like to hear a stand-up bass while eating waffles? The staff works together as a team -- I think we had five... More

Didn't see a lot of places in town that could provide me with the simple plate of eggs I craved. Prices were fair and I had a delicious plate of bacon, eggs, hashbrowns and toast. The coffee was great too.

This is a smallish storefront diner with a 50s feel right on the Main Street. The wait can be a bit long and there's no place to sit out front while waiting, except for a single bench. There is counter seating available, but that is subject to the wait list also. Once seated, the staff is friendly and the food... More

Wow, I can still taste the delicious sausage gravy I had at Bonnie Lu's. I had the 1/2 biscuits and gravy, with one egg and home fried potatoes - a perfect amount of food and it was so good! My husband enjoyed his eggs with sausage and pancakes, and said the sausage was exceptionally good. The ambience is very charming,... More

What a great find. We just wanted sandwiches and a quick stop and stumbled on Bonnie Lu's - what luck. We arrived just before they closed (only open until 2:30 pm) and we still received the best service ever! The sandwiches were hearty and delicious and shop is cute as can be. Highly recommend.

VERY friendly (and happy) staff! There was a wait on a busy Sat morning, but it was well worth it. We had breakfast - omelet, quiche - both excellent! Fresh fruit side very good with berries, melons. Looked like a place the locals like to go too - we will go back next time we visit.

Go here for breakfast and spoil yourself. Very good after a night of a wedding or other party event. Great eggs and yummy baked goods.
