Has a great, early breakfast at this vintage diner. Great fast and friendly service. Popular with early bird local fishermen and tradesmen, this is a small, family owned cafe. Breakfast seems to be their specialty, many options to chose from: omelets, pancakes, waffles, etc,

Had breakfast here Jan 1 2015. Busy morning for them, but well worth it. Service was still attentive (several offers to refill coffee), food was great. The cinnamon swirl French toast was a bit dry, could tell the bread was old, but everything else we had was wonderful. Would go back!

We had breakfast here on our road trip to Hearst Castle. Great steak and eggs. Even my daughter who does not like breakfast said it was the best breakfast she ever had. It was so good we stopped on our way back home the next day. Hubby had two different items and loved them both. Even though it was really... More

Soft and fluffy rather than browned and thin is they way they cook their omletes; I like. Be sure to ask for the patty sausage in the omlete rather than link sausages.

Bring your appetite to this timeless diner. My wife and I are staying in Pismo Beach for a month and have been to this charming eatery twice so far for a late breakfast/lunch. The decor is classic America - it appears to have changed little since Leave it to Beaver was on prime time. It is a happy place with... More

I would go back because of perfect coffee and fast friendly service. The food was good but few items could have been better. Gravy needed more flavor. Pancake good but they were more of a sponge cake which I prefer more cake. Hash Browns perfect and well done. My husband like his omelet. It was the baked apple and sausage... More

Always love having breakfast or brunch at Penny's. You want the waffles with strawberries as you see the vendor walk past your table with boxes of fresh local strawberries. Penny is not only great food but a strong supporter of the local community, serving members of the military and veterans. All are loved when they are in Penny's

For a number of years a group of us have attended a jazz festival in Pismo Beach and, amongst other things, we always have breakfast at Penny's. Apart from the fact that the food is very good, the menu is extensive, the service excellent and the staff very friendly. Well worth seeking this place out but come early on the... More
