I have been coming to Penny's for 12 yrs. The best breakfast ever. Service to servings are fabulous. Down home breakfast cooking. An absolute must.

I ate breakfast here the last two days. Sat on the patio. Service was very friendly and attentive. Food was good. Prices were good. This is going to be a go to stop for me when in Pismo or on the 101.

My wife and I had breakfast on a Monday. Service was good due to a weekday setting. While the pancakes were tasty and large, the rest of the meal was nothing special. Not bad, just average.

We've been visiting Pismo Beach, Always just walked around the pier area and the restaurants located close by there. this trip we walked farther up the street and found this café. I'm so glad we did. The place is small but the food is awesome. The breakfasts are so good, large portions and the presentation of the food really surprised... More

It can get very busy there, but great value and great service. Parking can be a challenge some days. We were there for breakfast, will have to go back for lunch sometime.

It was all on the up and up, good service, good portions, over all good food. But, there's always a but. Had biscuits and gravy, everywhere I travel, and I travel a ton I rate a breakfast on there BG. The biscuit spot on, gravy not so much too floury.... Still to this day my gauge starts at Nelda's in... More
