Great food! Dog friendly!

Great little cafe, came here for breakfast. There is a porch area where we were able to sit and eat with our beloved dog. Food was amazing, service was amazing. Couldn't ask for more!

We got here just before closing for Ice Cream and Coffee. Most of Pismo Beach was closed down by 10:00 pm so the choices were limited. Nothing special about the sundaes or the splits. Maybe we need to return for their shakes which I gathered were a specialty of the house.

We had a great breakfast here before we left. There was plenty to share of our delicious omlette. I wish they were close to our home.

Hands down our favorite breakfast place. Been going for years and now we go and walk the beach or Bob Jones trail and then go for breakfast afterwards. The All American omelette is my favorite and we always get the biscuit. It has the feel of a local's place but the tourist have definitely discovered it.

Went for breakfast and had a great meal. The service was good, the prices were reasonable, and the restaurant was "All American". From the fresh squeezed orange juice to the amazing bacon, this was hands down the best meal of my trip to Pismo.

Visited Penny's for breakfast based on a recommendation from a stranger. It was exactly what we were looking for. Old fashioned breakfast with friendly service.
