Bonnie Lu's Country Cafe
Within a cozy diner, decorated with a pink-and-blue mural of steaming coffee, servers festoon tables with hearty portions of homestyle comfort food. On any given day, the kitchen buzzes with cooks whipping up homemade entrees ranging from burgers and soups to salads and omelets served with fixings' such as fresh beets, roasted turkey, and thick-cut brioche. Guests chat over chorizo and eggs or marvel at the signature waffles that arrive under mountains of strawberries and whipped cream—a staple of the breakfast menu that runs all day, much like a marathon runner energized by a stomach full of biscuits and gravy.
