Penny’s diner was a fantastic breakfast. Cute diner full of atmosphere. Huge packed omelet with no grease. Hash browns the best ever and great coffee. Got a souvenir mug to go!

We stopped on our travels on I29. It was quite busy and the service was a bit slow. We enjoyed our meal - omelette and sandwich. We saw several milkshakes being sold but we did not partake.

Good service, great food, excellent prices. Very friendly and fun atmosphere. Looks like an old time diner, play classic rock and roll. Have eaten here multiple times and have never been disappointed.
