We stopped here for lunch on a Saturday and got a sandwich and a salad. Both were ok but the service was well below average. Customers were being rushed off and none of the servers were friendly.

We had a lovely brunch at Bonjour. Food was terrific (crepes). The side of fruit was huge, as were the 2 crepes for each order. The staff were wonderful and very attentive. I took home enough food for an entire meal (I'm not exaggerating about the portions)! The outdoor seating was beautiful. All in all a lovely experience.

I've eaten at the Bonjour Cafe a few times now for breakfast. I keep hoping for a great meal as one would expect from the menus and reviews. Unfortunately, I've never found the meals to anything memorable. Nothing special.

Thank you Tom for your comments. We definitely understand that despite pleasing most and having tons of regulars in our 25 years at our location, we cannot please everyone. Everybody has a different palate, expectation and taste. We appreciated all your visits that you mentioned. Have a great week More

The food is outstanding and is quite filling. You might want to share one order with two people. Had the Tahiti French toast. Lots of food. Took... More

On nice days there is plenty of outdoor seating in addition to plentiful indoor. However - this place is very popular so worth getting your timing right.

This is a small quaint restaurant which serves an excellent breakfast. The menu is heavy on options that include bread. I'm gluten free so my only option was an omelette -- which was quite good. The potatoes served as a side were delicious. I must admit I was envious of my friend who ordered the French toast. It looks fabulous!!!... More
