Bonnie Lu's Country Cafe great lunch for reasonable price

My wife and I passed through Ojai, CA back in mid January, 2016. While sight seeing and shopping in Ojai we stopped at Bonnie Lu's for lunch. While not a fancy establishment it had a very reasonably priced menu and great food. The service was very friendly and made our visit a fun one. I highly... read more

It appears it's mandatory to have at least one breakfast while visiting Ojai at Bonnie-Lu's. The restaurant itself is nice with ole 50's dinner ambiance. The staff is all smiles and very friendly (accept when you want to order). You know those places you visit where they have their own "system"of doing things that they think is the "best"? Well,...

This place is right down town next to the shopping district. Cute restaurant. It is only open for breakfast and lunch. The food was good and large portions. Hubby and I shared the chicken fried steak with eggs and country fried potatoes and a side of biscuits and gravy. It was tasty and filling. We ordered hot chocolate. It was... More

Great place if you want a fast economical breakfast. Lots of the locals here.....food was ok-nothing especially fancy or unique. The biscuits & gravy were not homemade-them are canned biscuits!

We were looking for a lunch spot and saw that this pl;ace was packed with locals, always a good sign. We had a couple different sandwiches and a caesar lard. All were very good ( & huge). The turkey sandwich itself could easily be lunch for two or three people. The service was good. They were very very busy so... More

I went here for breakfast one Sunday with my mom. I ordered the quiche which was very good. I got sourdough toast which seemed to be from homemade bread and probably would have tasted better had they not burned it a little. The fruit side was very fresh. I don't remember what my mom had but she said it was... More
