Penny's has just moved to the Golf Course. This is our new fave on the island. Homey, clean and cozy surroundings. I can't wait until the deck opens. All kinds of baking. Decent choice in meals. Burgers are good. Brunch items are my favourites. The...More

While they are still working out the "kinks" associated with a major move, the food is still of great quality. The best burger on Salt Spring, and almost everything made from scratch. Breakfasts are top-notch. Not for those in a great hurry.

Giant muffins - regular plus some gluten-free. Pies, deli dishes, deli sandwiches, salads, and great coffee. Staff always seem glad to see me, and I know it ain't my looks! Must be good, as I see lots of friends there.

Penny's is owned and run by a local woman and staffed mostly by extended family. They are friendly, and always cooking up something wholesome. Calling it a restaurant is a stretch, as sitting is minimal, and not cozy not private. Food is good, homemade, without...More
