Bonnie Blue Southern Market & Bakery opened in 2012 in an historic Esso station in downtown Winchester, VA, with the goal of preserving traditional, handcrafted methods of Southern cooking. Under the leadership of chef Brian Pellatt, a classically trained chef with deep roots in the Carolinas, Bonnie’s kitchen creates Southern classics from the Shenandoah Valley’s abundant local meat and produce. From slow-smoked pulled pork, tender Texas brisket, and succulent fried oysters to creamy mac and cheese, Carolina slaw, and fried local apples, the menu offers guests the full experience of the Southern table, complete with the friendliness and hospitality that the South is famous for.
In addition to providing the handmade biscuits, cornbread and Pullman bread that accompany Bonnie’s signature dishes, the bakery creates delicious sweets, pastries, and custom cakes. Locals often stop by Bonnie’s several times a week for their morning croissants, sticky buns, or muffins and their favorite coffee drink from the espresso bar. Bonnie’s grandma-sized cookies and buttery shortbread bars are a popular treat at the end of a long workday.
Whether it’s Sunday brunch with the family, a quick lunch break with friends, or a delicious stop on a long road trip, Bonnie’s brings you the best of the South with a smile.

“My wife had a big birthday recently, I won't mention any numbers :), Bonnie Blue catered it for us. We had 30 friends there, with a diversity of tastes. Bonnie Blue had something for everyone. I loved the attention to detail, as plates, serving spoons, etc... were all provided. It was an excellent, stress free experience. The food was delicious.”
“My wife and I were blown away by the full flavor of every bite. I ordered the Biscuits and gravy and Brisket my wife ordered the French toast with a coffee with a kick. I also had to grab a slice of carrot cake and peach cobbler. This is the type of establishment people come from out of town to visit, the food is that good. Customer service is absolutely on point, kind, respectful and courteous. I absolutely recommend if you want a meal that will leave a lasting impression, Bonnie Blue is where it's at. Salute to the staff and chef”
“Delicious food. Very popular. I love eating breakfast and dinner her. Great cornbread as well. They staff is super friendly and quick. Never have to wait for a seat but word is getting out how great this place is. It’s well decorated and very unique. I love their fried oysters. I would suggest you try this place so you too can have a new favorite place to eat.”
“So glad we decided to turn around after we saw this gem. Sunday offered brunch and regular afternoon menu which was a bonus! BBQ with over easy eggs hit the spot and the catfish with sides was delicious. Nice tangy collards and the biscuits were perfectly soft on the inside with a light crust. Baked goods for dessert had to be to go but were so delicious one couldn't resist. I did not realize this place was a must visit but I'd say it is now.”
“Absolutely excellent food and service. Waiter was friendly and prompt. He had great suggestions about what to try. I ordered sausage gravy, and though I'm not super crazy about sausage, this was the absolute best sausage gravy I've ever had. The fried apples had intense flavor, and I loved that they use local apples. My husband ordered French toast and absolutely loved it. It was slightly crisp, sweet, with great flavor inside. It was our first time (though we have lived here 14 years), but it definitely won't be our last!”
“LOVED Bonnie Blue!! Make sure to try their shrimp and grits - the wine reduction and local bacon just made this my favorite dish. There is a large patio with spots in the shade or in the sun, the location is a nice little spot in Winchester with plenty of free parking. Everyone is so friendly there, the food is amazing and we can't wait to go back.”
