Excellent food

i liked the food, specially the home made potatoes with scrambled eggs. Also the ham and the sausages are very good. I didnt like one occasion when the food took very long to order because there was only one cook and many customers to service

Over easy eggs had raw clear stuff in them. Hash browns were greasy and stringy. Toast wasn't even warm and it came dry. Never could get the hard butter to soften up on it so left it. Bacon was too fatty. Maybe we hit it on a bad day because the cook was also waiting all the tables. Super cute... More

Stayed at the hotel next door. Their free breakfast was great for a diner. We had dinner night before and it was great for a diner. Good value.

Open 24 hours. Food is satisfying. 50's diner décor. Located just off highway 5 with easy access. The spot to go for really late night dining.

Loved the look of this place--so shiny and cute. It's a 50's diner place. Not haute cuisine, it's diner food. The menu is pretty much breakfast, hamburgers, and TV-dinner type entrees. YUM. Would go back!

I stayed for few days at next door hotel and the breakfast was included and on the beginning I was not expecting much from the breakfast normal. In America the hotel offers are not very impressive but this one was quite good and I always ate a omelette and was great and quite filling, good for me to ski all... More

I had dinner and breakfast at Penny's recently while staying at the motel next door. Dinner was nothing special, just a bowl of chili. Breakfast was included in the motel stay. It's prepared fresh while you're watching it cook on the griddle. The cook was also the waiter and cashier, and he was very friendly. Breakfast turned out to be... More
