I highly recommend the chorizo and eggs. Staff is really friendly and the coffee is good. Pancakes were a little overcooked.

We came here due to the great reviews. We waited a short time and it was more than worth it. Food was delicious. We had chicken fried steak, and an egg combo breakfast. All of it was super tasty, bacon cooked perfectly, and the fruit was ripe and sweet! Definitely the best breakfast we had when we were in town.

Had breakfast here based on high reviews. I had the eggs Benedict and was very disappointed. Probably the worst I ever had. But my friend enjoyed her scrambled eggs and bacon very much.

My large family and I dined here on a Sunday morning and the place was packed. Not only did the hostess accommodate us but everyone who helped us was really nice! AND the food was amazing! Not a single member of my family regretted their meal. Honestly, I would take the day-trip back to this restaurant just to have breakfast... More

Locals love Bonnie Lu's for the good food and casual atmosphere. Kids, couples, singletons, everyone is comfortable. Don't go on a Wednesday or you'll find the door locked. Just good people to deal with.

Great breakfast before hitting the road home. This place has a diner atmosphere with many good choices. I had the vegetarian eggs Benedict which was great! Not crowded at all on a Monday. We noticed a wait both days of the weekend.
