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.

This place had it all...several page menu with dollar wise prices and great food and service. Tri tip and eggs for me...big platter and filling! Wife had Benedict...ham a bit salty, but otherwise terrific! Endless cup of good coffee. Breakfast again next time!

When one travels, one can find the best restaurants by following the locals. Penny's is a gem. A favorite of locals, but it may be missed by tourist. DO NOT MISS EATING AT PENNY'S. The food, coffee, service, and atmosphere are all incredible.

Well...a charming looking restaurant with a lovely patio. And lucky for us because it took nearly 30 minutes for our breakfast to be served. I had one scrambled egg which was just fine. However, my homefries were laden with extra crispy bacon bits which were...More
