My first time here. BEST eggs benedict breakfast I've ever had, hands down! The hollandaise sauce was so plate licking worthy, I couldn't stop commenting between bites! I love the quaintness of the restaurant, and the overall ambiance. Worth the 45mins drive to Perth easily, anytime you want a fantastic breakfast. Shout out to the amazing chef PA and awesome...

Food: nice thick decent quality peameal bacon and nothing like homemade homefries! (See pic) Price:$10.95 Service: small place was pretty much full but same service... coffee cup never went empty. Allergy: no questions for swapping eggs for tomatoes Said I'd come back while in Perth and happy I did.

We were in town overnight in Perth and had checked out where to have breakfast in the morning ahead of time. Penny's was very close by to where we were staying, and we arrived just before 8:00 AM. Our waitress was very friendly, and the coffee that we both ordered was great, so we were off to a good start!... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write about your experience here! I am so thankful for the kind works and appreciation for what we do. We have worked hard to perfect breakfast and lunch.

Lynne and I stopped for lunch when passing through. A great choice. Much better than the McDonalds, Wendy's and the like. The atmosphere was warm and cosy, menu very varied and Karen, our waitperson, extremely pleasant, competent and helpful. Prices were reasonable and the food excellent. Another outstanding choice and we will certainly keep it in mind for future visits... More

We stopped in for lunch at Penny' Restaurant, on Route 7, at the entrance to Perth. I've been there many times and am always amazed at the quality of their food. They have a full menu of home cooked lunches, soups, sandwiches and desserts. They also serve daily specials and all-day breakfast. A local get-away, their service is friendly and... More

Description
Initially opened by local Ottawa native Penny Bell in 1994. She raised her daughters in the restaurant business; Dawn Bell owns and operates Michaels Table, and Pennyann Bell is Chef and Manager at Penny's Place.

Becoming famous for breakfast in the early years, Penny's has expanded their menu over the years. Offering an extensive lunch menu and a never ending breakfast menu as well!

Offering house smoked Chicken, Pastrami, homemade Desserts, fresh cut Fries and real Homefries & Hashbrowns. Dishing up a new specials every couple week and our home made soups are only availably while supply lasts!

Penny's has become a staple for the locals, and a popular hot spot for summer vacationers in the beautiful cottage country that surrounds the area.

With easy access located right off HWY 7 before the first set of lights in the beautiful town of Perth.

Our parking lot is large with lots of room for people to stop by with their trailers, campers and whatever else their hauling while they grab a bite to eat!

Please note: As we are a small diner, we often end up with a line up out the door. A key part to our success is controlling our seating to ensure we are able to seat as many people as possible each and every day.

This may mean that some days you have to wait for your entire group to arrive before your seated and sometimes we have to seat you at tables that match your group size.

We don't do this because we like too but because it is a necessary part of our business to ensure we are able make the most of each day and serve everyone who visits us.

On that note...we welcome one and all into our business and hope to see everyone some day, some time!

Thank you kindly for your business in the past, the present and the future.
