Had breakfast here while staying in Kiama. Hot cakes were very good, eggs bene not as good as hoped. Coffee is decent. Staff were very pleasant and service was quick. It would be great if they could make the decor a little warmer and more comfortable...a lot of hard surfaces just make for a bit of a cold feeling (but then we visited in winter too so maybe in summer it has a different feeling). Lovely view though. Plenty of space to bring the pram in.

With its superb location, fabulous food, and unique coffee (when available - regular coffee is always available), Penny Whistlers rates as one of our favourites. Come Spring and Summer invited musicians come in on certain weekends and create an ambiance that is first class.
Don’t miss the opportunity to catch a brekky or lunch at this wonderful restaurant run by a lovely local couple and family.

Fabulous location for breakfast overlooking the ocean. Very friendly staff. Fabulous coffee. Good selection of baked products available...muffins are particularly good! Good menu selection.

After enjoying breakfast at Penny Whistlers many times over the last year or so we only just found out that they do a superb dinner as well.

Faultless - absolutely wonderful lamb shank and seafood stew. Simple and tasty - perfect on a chilly night. And great service too.
