We were going to eat at The Honeymoon Cafe, but they do not serve pancakes except on the weekend... or so we were told. They said, "Try Penny's". Glad we did. Very good breakfast, even with the 4th of July tourist traffic. The honey-wheat pancakes are delicious. We ate on the outdoor patio, and asked for the heater to be... More

Ordered the egg and linguica breakfast, since I live in Texas and it's hard to find linguica. REALLY big serving of the sausage, Mom and I could have shared one breakfast, but oh well. Service fast and friendly. Kept the coffee cups full. Had a nice chat with a lady sitting at a table across the way! That just added... More

Was not as good as first time sorry to say! I ordered exactly same thing as the last time but this time scrambled eggs were kind of slimy not well done as I ask for and was shorted 1 piece of bacon. Now to be fair they brought properly cooked eggs and the missing bacon but it still affects my... More

We enjoy the service and the old time ambience. It is walking distance from the old town Pismo beach.

My husband and I felt like we were family... The employees were kind, helpful, funny and looked like they enjoyed working. We love the clam chowder it's the BEST... The tri tip sandwich was AMAZING...

This is our local favorite. I know it's a great place when my kids ask to go back time after time! Great chowder! Great Chile verde! Homemade biscuits. Nice thick bacon. Eggs Benedict is some of the best we have had anywhere in the area! If you get to meet Penny, that is a bonus! Her smiles & laughter are... More

The last morning of our mini vacation we decided to try Penny's, we were not disappointed. Our waitress was just great and made sure our eggs were cooked just how we like them. Everyone enjoyed their breakfast and we did not walk away hungry. Large portions and very dog friendly as we had three golden retrievers with us. We called... More

Again, another no-frills eatery popular among locals that excels by serving up large portions via excellent service and for a reasonable price. Food is served hot and cooked correctly. If not, they will pull out the stops to make things right. Easy parking, too.
