They feed you well, they treat you even better. Stopped in for a quick Montecristo and Fruit and it was fantastic.

Excellent food and service in a throwback to the 1950s. Quick service, but often a short wait for a table in this popular place. Standard American breakfast items.

We go to Bonnie Lu's for breakfast almost every week. The staff is always very friendly. Our kids like to seat at the counter and watch cartoons on tv while my wife and I can relax and have a nice conversation. Jeanne, the owner is always there to take care of everybody. It is a perfect family restaurant.

After years of our daughter raving about this place, but us being too lazy to leave our hotel in time to get breakfast, we finally tried it. It is indeed worth the half hour wait for a table. Excellent eggs and pancakes, the friendliest owners and service ever, and a good old fashioned Mayberry vibe.

We have walked past this establishment so many times but this time we decided to give it a try. We kick ourselves now for not walking thru those doors sooner. Great place. You will not be disappointed at all.

I'd love to give Bonnie Lu's a 5 rating. I really would. It's a charming, old-school diner that serves up tasty, old-school breakfast food. But when the waitress brings you the wrong side of sausage (links instead of patties), takes the plate back and returns without ANY sausage but promises it will come out soon, then forgets about it until...

We had a Thursday lunch here in downtown Ojai. We were greeted and seated promptly at a nice table. Bonnie Lu's has both booths and tables with pink tops and blue leather upholstery. They also have a luncheon counter. It's a 50s type of place. Our water arrived promptly and the server took our order. My wife ordered the Monte... More

We stopped for lunch and were lucky to get a table. Down to earth food and prices located on the Main Street. Breakfast all day if wanted. The Monte Christo sandwich was cooked a little different than I'm use to(not dipped in batter)but still good. Happy staff and great service. Definitely great for breakfast with hungry children I'm sure.
