“Huge Breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2011

This place is a classic american dinner/coffee shop. The booths the counters just like 1950. Very patriotic, if you can get a seat they have good service and huge portions. Enjoy.

“Great Breakfast!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2011

Penny's has a great breakfast menu, everything we ordered was served hot and tasted really great. I love the pancakes and eggs, the sausage is really good too! Service is good and prices are reasonable.

“Where the Locals Go”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2011

I found this by accident while looking for another restaurant. We had a great lunch, and evidently so did several locals who were there. The tri-tip french dip was really tasty and my wife's omelette was packed with bacon and cheese. This place is time frozen in space around the 50's. The food was very good and the service was friendly, I will stop by here again the next time I'm in town.

“Very American breakfast!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2011

Excellent classic American diner breakfast. Perfectly cooked eggs. I ordered the top notch (with gravy) biscuits to sub for toast. Sooo good; the gravy is a little spicy but not uber salty. Waitstaff are quick, casual and friendly.
