we stayed at the hotel, and we got this breakfast for free... not much more to say except for the title of this review. asked for milk for our coffee instead of cream and were warned that we'd be charged. what were they thinking?

I arrived early for breakfast, and the only one working was the chef. He made me a breakfast burrito which was delicious, and large enough that I saved half of it for lunch!

6-12-14 Spent the night in Redding. I remembered there was a Penny’s Diner just up the road. We go to Penny’s in Yuma, Az. a lot. I guess a lot is when you walk in they know that you are going to have either this or that. Well this one in Dunsmuir is the same as the one in Yuma,... More

Went to Penny's after the place we wanted to go had a long wait. It was pretty good. They serve breakfast all day. Service was a little slow.

We are locals but hadn't been to Penny's in a couple years, so decided to give it a try. We visited with friends for lunch and all our orders were perfectly done and delicious. The atmosphere is a 50's diner complete with music from the era - the only thing missing was the tabletop coin operated jukebox. We had such... More

Was passing through and stopped at Penny's. The service was amazing. James was the host, waiter, server, cook, busboy AND dishwasher! At NO time did we want for anything. James needs go be commended for a outstanding job. BRAVO!!

We stopped by this hidden gem on our way back home. The diner was spotless and we were promptly greeted by Robbie when we walked in. The menu is short and simple, classic diner food, and the prices are hard to beat when you see the portions. It's classic 'home cookin' and you can tell these guys really take pride... More
