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.

Old style American breakfast. Service was slow, but friendly. Good food, but slightly overpriced. Seating available inside and outside.

We had breakfast our last morning and we really liked it. The food is classic breakfast and the portion sizes are good, especially for the price. Service was very quick.

A small restaurant, (20 places and a small outside patio) but full of people! I love this observation... We sat in a corner where there was a metal plaque on which you could read: "In loving memory of James Dean, a dear friend and loyal customer." We ordered two eggs turned over easy, bacon (2 big crispy pieces), white toast... More

Extensive menu with lots of choices -- most pretty standard, but plenty big and reasonably priced. Corned Beef Hash one of the better ones: nice and plentiful chunks of corned beef with nicely browned potatoes. Home fries just about perfect -- browned with a nice crunch; not too many extras, but enough (e.g., onions, peppers). Eggs cooked perfectly, and decent... More

If you want an American breakfast, Penny's is your place. It has a good breakfast and the servers are friendly. It is a little overpriced for what you get, but it is pretty decent.

Stopped in for breakfast after an overnight in Pismo Beach on our way up the coast from LA to SF. Glad we did, fantastic chorizo & eggs, pancakes, and more! Love a good breakfast place, and glad to support a place that's both high quality and gives back to its community. Would totally go back!
