Awesome Breakfast

The Mess is an awesome meal. Just have to wait on seating since they do get big crowds for breakfast.

We loved Penfold's so much we went back and had breakfast there again the next day. My husband ordered the Cinnamon Roll French Toast and I had to laugh when I saw how huge it was. I wish I hadn't ordered an Omelette because his was enough for 3 people. It was full of butter and still had the icing... More

Penfolds has been a go to breakfast spot for my family for years now. It's quaint, the service is good and the food is tasty. I highly recommend the breakfast tacos.

We were traveling from AZ to Encinitas; when we got to Temecula Joe asked me if I would like to drive through Old Temecula, of course I said yes as I love that kind of thing. As we approached the end of Old Temecula and began to turn around to go back we found ourselves staring at Penfolds Café. We... More

If you love French toast, their Cinnamon Roll French toast is unbelievable. They use their giant 9" rolls and dip in egg and fry. Enough for 2 people to share and both can have a heart attack. Nice touch you can have fresh fruit as a side! Rest of menu is coffee shop good but nothing special.

Our hotel didnt provide breakfast so we were going to stop at the gas station for coffee. Penfolds was across the street and looked cute. All sorts of collectables line the walls. The place was busy for an early sunday morning but the staff was attentive and pleasant. The greek omelet was tasty with just the right amount of feta.... More

The best pancakes here. Buttermilk, multigrain, and even sweet potato. Oh my, they are wonderful. Coffee just strong enough. And service was great.

This very popular locals hangout only serves breakfast and lunch and they do it well. Be careful when ordering because the portions can be overwhelming. Cute little place with a lot of knic knacs and keepsakes lining the walls. Food is good and reasonably priced. Well worth stopping in.
