“Small place, Big Taste”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

This is our fifth visit and the food seems to just get better. And the wait staff is terrific, too. The menu is very eclectic featuring some very intriguing lunch sandwich fare and sides. The atmosphere is friendly and there is a table for large parties. If there is a gourmet restaurant in Malvern, this is it.

“Finished every bit of the large portioned delicious lunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013 via mobile

A bit crowded at lunch time. This is good because you know their meats and veggies were not sitting out too long. :)
Ordered a special of lamb kabob with rice and grilled veggies (squash and tomato), reminded me of a very nice Middle East restaurant in Chicago, if not better/fresher!

Other dishes I saw all look (fresh) and smell(grilled fresh peppers) good.
Will definitely come back.

“Great sandwiches”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

Not your run-of-the-mill lunch spot. Generous serving size from an ecclectic and very interesting menu. Good service to match.

“Competition for Nudy's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

We had a very nice lunch at Bonu Cafe. The menu is huge -- there is something for everyone. It was a good place to bring kids. The corned beef hash was real hash -- not something out of a can. My husband had a reuben that he really enjoyed. The kids had waffles that were very tasty. We also tried the kolaches, which are eastern European pastries that are sort of like danishes, and they were delicious. This place may give Nudy's a run for its money. My only complaint was that it took a little longer than I would have liked for the food to come out, but otherwise it was a very nice experience.

“A Welcome Addition”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

The Malvern/Frazer (PA) neighborhood has long felt the lack of a small diner/cafe. There are many good, diverse restaurants in this area but what was lacking was a place for a quick coffee, a light snack,or a small meal. Bonu fills this gap admirablely. They are open for breakfast (available all day), lunch and early dinners.Their menu features appetizers, salads, pizza, and cafe sandwiches. The real speacialty and surprise on the menu is kolaches, a Czech delicacy cooked to order. These small sweet cakes come with fruit toppings, cheese, and even filled with meat for lunch or eggs for breakfast. A friendly staff completes the picture of a great place to eat.
