Cute place, good food

My wife and I had breakfast here. The portions were generous, but I had questions about the general quality of the food served. Let me be specific/when a small rack of Smuckers(high fructose corn syrup sweetened low quality items)jellies and preserves are offered to its customers, it makes you wonder what type of corners are being cut in the kitchen:...

This is a great place for breakfast. When we arrived all tables were full inside, so we were seated on the patio. It was a bit chilly but they moved us inside to the first available table. We ordered corn beef hash, cinnamon swirl French toast combo, and a greek omelet. All were outstanding! The bloody Mary's were great and... More

We have been there before and loved it so went back and the people were so great that they told us places to go that not all of the tourists didn't know and were just so nice and friendly. They were so busy but still were able to have great service and quickness. Looked like a fun place to work... More

We ate breakfast here 2 times on our last trip. This is a traditional breakfast. If you expect low calories go somewhere else. We would return here each time we are in Pismo Beach.

If you are in Pismo Beach area and looking for the classic diner style breakfast but with the creative extra touch which takes the regular egg dishes, pancakes, and omelettes to another level, then go to Penny's All American Cafe. It's small, but been there a long time because of great food and service. Don't be surprised to find a... More

Good food, breakfast fare, nothing extraordinary but service good, no surprises. It's open early and convenient if you're traveling, can walk there from the hotel (about twenty minutes, you can burn off one egg), Clean.
