When I first entered it was very empty and no one attended to me as they were hanging in the kitchen. This is a place to get variety of sandwiches and Mexican breads as well as breakfast. I had the kaloches which is a pastry that can be savory or sweet. I had a breakfast one. I had a chicken... More

Our server, Brendan, was great. He took time to explain some dishes we had questions about and was prompt in refilling our drinks. My wife and I chose to select several types of the Kolaches along with an order of fries. We had never had these before and did enjoy them very much. They were like small rolled meat filled... More

Our servers was enchanting . Our food was wonderful. I had French onion soup and when I asked if I could mix my kolaches there was no problem. They were great! You have to try them. My husband had a chicken barley soup and a lamb gyro and loved it we were too full for dessert. We will definitely be... More

Service was slow and confused. Food was good, but server messing up order, salad that was apparently prepared by server was awful and bill that had to corrected twice ruined the visit.

We tired of being trapped inside with all the rain and bad weather and decided to venture out for an early dinner. What a surprise! This restaurant is easily accessed from business #30,and has convenient parking. The menu was extensive and they also had daily specials. Service was prompt and efficient. Food was good and reasonably priced. Four diners, all... More

My favorite breakfast spot in the area. Also serves lunch and dinner. Everything is fresh and better than you would expect from the outside that looks a bit commercial. Basic food but exactly what I was hoping for in a breakfast cafe. Sitting between a Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts there is no comparison. If you are looking for diner type... More

The food was very good, but a bit heavy with the oil (the potatoes and omelets were both well coated). The Kolache was delicious and they have dozens of flavors - think fresh Danish right from the oven. I was on the fence between 'Very Good' and 'Average' and the oil and kitchen speed are the only reasons I landed... More

We had a guest eat here and had recommended it so as I was out this way thought I would give it a try for lunch. Firstly, the service is great, very friendly. Food was plentiful, more than enough. Quality of food was good but not outstanding, better than many places I have been, but competition in our area is... More

I am currently "mobility challenged" and stumbled across Buno while staying at the nearby Sonesta ES Suites. Their delivery service and user friendly online ordering were the initial drawing cards. Honestly, despite the many favorable reviews, my expectations were not that high. Now, after having 3 meals over the past 24 hours from Buno, i have to say this is... More

We found a coupon for Bonu in our Entertainment Book and that led us to a great breakfast. Our server was a sweet girl who was very attentive. As another review mentioned, it did take awhile for the meal to arrive but that is because it was made to order - you could tell. No frozen hashbrowns but real potatoes,... More
