Live band paying every other Sunday, I was told, that was wonderful. They were very busy, but I enjoyed having the time to listen to the great band. The food was fresh and very good, very reasonable too.

Can't go wrong here for an old fashioned breakfast with old fashioned food and old fashioned waitresses. Cute and kitchy but the its a great spot for consistently yummy food. Crowd pleaser.

I was passing through Ojai on a motorcycle trek and happened to ask a gas station attendant where I might find a decent meal. He recommended Bonnie Lu's. Remember that old-school cafe you had in your home town when you were a kid? Now imagine it was even better than what you remember. That's Bonnie Lu's. Without a doubt, hands... More

Good value and large portions. If you order the veggie benedict, tell them to go easy on the spinach!!

Really large portions, super friendly service and tasty food. No problem with sharing. The tuna melt is excellent. Ordered the garlic poppy seed salad dressing which is really tasty , but a bit overpowering for the salad. Order it, and use it as a dip for the homemade warm potato chips - YUM

I was there for lunch. I had a chicken sandwich with potato salad. The chicken was tough. The potato salad nothing to brag about. The kitchen seemed overwhelmed. Service was friendly and OK. Nothing to write home about.

Food was decent but service was superb. Order was correct and delivered quickly, all the staff helped each other and were very friendly. Food decent, although nothing very different from the typical breakfast fare.

My family & I had a great breakfast here. The chicken fried steak is so good! We also had the biscuits & gravy and eggs Benedict. They were both really good. The only drawback was the wait. My suggestion would be to get there really early or around lunch time. But, it was worth the wait.
