This place was perfect for breakfast. We are seated quickly, service was sweet and efficient, and the chili verde and cinnamon swirl French toast was out of this world! Can't wait to go back!

Went based on Tripadvisor reviews. Cosy cafe which serves delicious home cooked breakfast recipes. Biscuits and gravy had perfect amount of heat. Cinnamon swirl French toast was flavourful and fluffy. Strawberry waffles had generous amount of fruit and were served hot and crispy. What every breakfast cafe should aspire to be. The service was very friendly. An authentic American cafe... More

Every person who works there feels like one of your neighbors. Very friendly and helpful. Menu is the sort of thing that people who dream of visiting the US dream about. The food is fresh, bountiful, and quintessentially American breakfast fare. It's located right on old US 101, and near California SR 1, so it's an iconic location, too. Don't... More

This was a great restaurant. Friendly staff, cute dinner, great food. My wife had the Pismo Pier Omelet that was stuffed with shrimp and lobster. Delicious! I had the spicy huevos rancheros. Not super spicy but amazing none the less. I highly recommend.

I have visited Penny's several times over the years and not once have I been disappointed!! This is a good old fashioned family run cafe - from pancakes and waffles to delicious sandwich combos, this is the place to go for a real taste of Americana serving breakfast and lunch. Best to be an early riser to avoid crowds and... More

We had breakfast at Penny’s. I had the Sunrise Sandwich. I asked if the hash browns were crisp and the waitress said, “Do you want them crisp?” I said yes and they were perfect. The sandwich was wonderful – the sourdough bread was perfectly toasted and the sandwich held together perfectly. My husband had the corned beef hash. The hash... More
