The is truly a little gem of a place right out of my childhood memories. Don't let the outside fool you. They serve up great homemade food. The breakfast was wonderful, and the blueberry pancakes were the best I've had in a very long time....More

We go to Bonnies a few times a month for breakfast, and it's great. The food is comfort food at it's best, and the staff are wonderful. The décor is right out of the 70s and super cute.

Small restaurant on University that is big on good food. Try one of their combo breakfasts including the pancakes and sausages. There is parking on the side of the restaurant as you cannot park on the street. Service is also excellent with no extra charge...More

This is a little gem in University Ave that isn't going to wow you with a fancy interior or menu...in fact the menus have updated prices written w a Sharpie...a little tacky, but who gives a darn. Coffee is good, I enjoyed the biscuits &...More

All diner, from the atmosphere to the menu to the food. Excellent coffee. You can, actually, get white toast here if you wNt it. The roast beef hash is excellent and if you want it extra crispy, they listen! The chorizo scramble was generous and...More

I stop at Bonnie's for breakfast often, and it is like stepping back in time. Real food and genuine hospitality. I recommend their homemade roast beef hash. Really good.
