Almost straight out of the 1950s. this place serves an authentic American breakfast at a table or at the counter, and they'll give an old-fashioned, hand-written check. Awesome pancakes & omelets!

Old school breakfast and lunch fare. They offer a beer selection also. When I visit Ojai, I always have a breakfast at Bonnie Lu's. Great location, easy parking.

Went for breakfast with a friend. Small charming country fare. Good coffee and service. Loved their omelette ...will certainly visit again with the family. Not sure about other meals (haven’t tried) but definitely recommend the country style breakfast!

We stopped in for lunch while we were in Ojai. Very cute place with friendly staff. I had a veggie sandwich and salad. It was very tasty and I received a large quantity. Will try breakfast next time since it's served all day.
