It's hard to choose from the ample all-day breakfast menu, let alone the salads and sandwiches served for lunch. Bonnie Lu's serves three kinds of eggs Benedict and had three different quiches. The spinach quiche was rich and tasty, and the Hollandaise sauce was silky, not gloppy. Best of all, the toast was fabulous: crispy and well-buttered. The fruit cup contained berries as well as the usual melon and pineapple. Service is solicitous, but be prepared to wait for the food.

While you're waiting, be sure to check out the wooden chicken near the door. The chicken's head disappeared one day, and the restaurant got photos of its travels to landmarks in New York and Paris. Then the head came home to roost.

OMG, what a great place for breakfast! Service is great, portions are more than ample and the taste is WONDERFUL!! Don't let a small line scare you away, they move it pretty quickly and it's worth the wait. Enjoy!

It was delicious and worth the wait! My son had the plate with a waffle, sausage and eggs scrambled! He s a picky one as far as egg preparation goes (hah!) and per his words "best ever" . We also ordered biscuits and gravy~ delicious.They have a few renditions of eggs Benedict. I choose the one with spinach which was delicious as well! The egg was perfectly prepared AEB (as evidenced by) ooze of the yolk! :) My husband ordered a plate with hash browns and other hearty favorites~delicious! Side of pancakes~delicious!
The atmosphere was busy! It was Sunday morning. The live music was actually calming. Every thing was clean!!! My son and his girlfriend live in Ventura and will be back soon!! It is a great place to eat and then walk the streets of Ojai. We live in Jacksonville, Fl and certainly will return as soon as we are able! Remember the key word of this review is....DELICIOUS!

Great spot. Service was slow, and I HATE it when people after me get served before me. But, it was a busy Saturday and the Reuben was kick-a** so who cares. Great Bfast spot. But skip bfast and order the reuben.
