Searching for breakfast (at noon) on a Monday while meandering through Ojai thankfully brought us to Bonnie Lu's. The place was full of folks, mostly locals, which is always a good sign. Promptly seated and orders were placed. Coffee was good and hot and plentiful....More

Ate there late on a busy Sunday morning. They had a 3 piece band and the spot was bustling with a mix of locals and tourists. Crowded and had a small wait but well worth it.

Take a trip back in time in this wonderful cafe. We went for breakfast and everything from the special thin pancakes (and pumpkin pancakes too!), perfectly cooked eggs, bacon & sausage was wonderful. Service is friendly and there is plenty of parking in back.

Bonnie Lu's is an Ojai staple. Straight forward American diner style breakfast with big portions and great service. It's the perfect antidote when you've just had enough 'avocado toast' an 'artisanal' whatever in Ojai. Ideal spot for kids too. I get Kim's perfect breakfast croissant...More
