Big fresh breakfast

About the widest ranging breakfast menu I've ever seen. The omelettes were fresh and fantastic and everything on the plate was perfect and plentiful. Reasonable price.

We stopped in Temecula for a meal on the way home from San Diego and were not disappointed in Penfold's. It was packed with people but we were seated in relatively short time and the food was delicious and the service was excellent!

Good fresh food. Great service lots of drink refills. Unfortunately not a whole lot of vegetarian options for me. Had to do my lunch Ala cart. Pretty pricey. But overall nice fun place.

We stopped here quite by accident. There was a back up on I-15 and decided to pull off and get some lunch. We stumbled upon Penfolds when we couldn't find a parking place due to the Farmers Market going on. WELL, best place to eat! I had the Temecula special, which was fantastic, my husband had the Monte Cristo, which... More

On our way to wine country, we wanted late breakfast/lunch and Penfold's fit the bill perfectly! We ate outside on the covered patio and enjoyed endless coffee refills, the chopped kale salad, the grilled chicken salad, pumpkin waffles and a Philadelphia cheesesteak grilled sandwich (and we're from Philadelphia!). All were rated as 'DELICIOUS!' Service was efficient and friendly. The food... More

You can't go wrong choosing a breakfast item off Penfold's menu. They have something for everyone! If you order "The Mess" - be sure to share it with someone, it is HUGE! I had the fresh strawberry Belgian waffle. My husband had a Hollandaise Omelet. Everyone in our party of 5 enjoyed their meals.

This was just gross. My husband's friend recommended this place because of the cinnamon raisin French toast, but that didn't sound very appealing. I ordered a meal that came with eggs, a waffle, and some bacon. My food was cold. I asked for eggs over easy and the whites were kind of gooey. The waffle and the whipped cream (which... More

The service was top notch at Penfolds Cafe. We had a big day with lots to do. Mid-Day we stopped in and got recharged with a huge lunch. I ordered the club sandwich with hand sliced turkey that came out thick, juicy and delicious. There was more than any one person could eat and french fries as well. It looks... More

Penfolds is an amazing diner. Friendly beatiful wait staff and the cooks doing what they do which is making amercan classics and give you an option to basically build your own breakfast. I usually get belgian pankcakes with hashbrowns and bacon.
