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

I love this place, great food & staff. You can sit in patio with dog & no problem. I always feel welcomed here. Just wish we found this place sooner. You won't go away hunger. Always friendly.

Went here for breakfasr. Wife had French toast and egg while I had the oatmeal. This is just an average place with good service and ambiance. Just don't get it with some of these TA reviews unless they are salted to make the place look good. After all, what makes one egg different from another egg somewhere else. And oatmeal... More

I can echo the reviews of the other patrons. Penney's food and service was surprisingly good. I had oatmeal for breakfast, and it came in a commodious bowl with fruits, raisins, butter, brown sugar — all that good stuff. The restaurant's decor is worth noting: Our foreign visitors might be astounded by the abundant use of U.S. symbols everywhere —... More

very homey-good, no nonsense food. Uses fresh, local berries in their recipes. Very popular on weekends, especially.

We tried Penny's for the first time on our many visits to Pismo Beach. The food here was great and no one will ever accuse Penny on skimping on portions. The service was great and the staff were very accommodating and patient considering we were dining with my wife's grandparents who require assistance. I highly recommend Penny's omelet and substituting... More
