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

We went in for breakfast and the food was very good but the server was over the top. The cook/waiter was a kick, and very funny. We enjoyed the entire experience.

Quaint, friendly 50's style diner with food made to order while you watch! They served a great breakfast. Their bacon, eggs, hash browns, and English muffin, beat Denny's Grand Slam hands down! I would love to go back because their Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich sounded awesome!

We wanted to go to a bakery or diner downtown but they were closed...so Penny's it was. Penny's Diner had standard breakfast choices. Our server was also the cook so he was very short with us when we ordered... I guess he had something cooking and had to get back to it. The food was ok... scrambled eggs with a... More

Delightful & off-the-path, but right next door to a fine motel, Penny's Diner can't be beat!

Also - they are open 24 hours! A rare treat these days... More

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
