“Comfort food at a very reasonable price.”
Reviewed December 26, 2011

Open for breakfast & lunch (dinner Friday only). Generous servings of good, home-cooked food, served by pleasant, attentive waitress. Can be very busy, so be prepared to wait a bit.

“For breakfast done right (lots of taste, good portions) go to Penny's”
Reviewed July 28, 2011

Checked Penny's out on Trip Advisor and was in the area so we stopped in. Admittedly from the outside I wasn't sure what to expect (unassuming exterior.) Inside, American diner (sort of) with a counter and numerous tables. We were there on Sunday morning (before church let out) and I was surprised, almost every table was full. Waited maybe 10/15 minutes and got seated. Service was bustling but as all the food was cooked to order ours took a little over 20 minutes to arrive. Try the home fries, and the HASH! Some of the best I've tasted, not greasy or over cooked, just right. It was obvious to me that Penny's put their talent in the kitchen. Wholesome, satisfying food in a straightforward atmosphere (where everyone seemed to be neighbors or know each other.) Truly a gem for breakfast!

“Best food spot in the area”
Reviewed July 17, 2011

I have been going to school in the Seneca falls area for 3 years and have past by this place for 2 of those years. One day we decided to stop in and give it a try. You get SO much food for a great price. The waitress are great and always have the coffee pot ready. Breakfast is my favorite meal but they do have a great lunch/dinner menu. If you live in the area you probably go there anyway but if you have not gone in you definitely need to. If you are visiting Seneca Falls and want to try the best home made food you need to come here! Where else can you get breakfast for 4 dollars!

“Excellent Breakfasts at Penny's Place”
Reviewed August 8, 2009

Wife and I have been visiting the Seneca Falls area for several years and had never found a really good breakfast spot. Imagine our surprise when we discovered on our most recent visit (July 2009) that all that time we had been passing right by this little gem of a place that is hidden way back from the highway in a nondescript strip plaza.

We had two breakfasts here and each time the place was hopping busy. Service was friendly and efficient. All the food was excellent but the homefries (ordered as a side) were especially good. Funny how "home" fries are the one thing is never, ever as good when cooked at home!?? These were amazing.

Tables are a bit cozy but the locals were welcoming and we picked up some good travel tips.
