“Can't beat buckwheat waffles!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2014

Great breakfast food. My husband always gets their buckwheat waffles. I got their homemade corned-beef hash this time--fabulous! Classic cozy diner atmosphere, friendly staff, and Keuka Lake. We love the town of Penn Yan, and the Penn Yan Diner.

Had the Sean breakfast - tasty pancakes, eggs, sausage, hash browns, coffee - all great and low price! Lots of charm to this dinner - obviously a favourite among locals.

“Nostalgia and good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2014

A great experience. Small diner with friendly service and great food. Our breakfast was fresh and made on the flat top in front of our eyes. The service counter was great. You just don't find places like this anymore

“Classic Diner Fare”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2014

Stopped by for breakfast when in town with friends. Love going to classic diners like these - this is a small place that shoehorns alot of people in and serves some solid diner breakfast. Everyone enjoyed their breakfast especially the breakfast burrito. The service was small town friendly.
