Reviewed 26 April 2014

My husband and I felt like we were family... The employees were kind, helpful, funny and looked like they enjoyed working. We love the clam chowder it's the BEST... The tri tip sandwich was AMAZING...

“Great food! Great service!”
Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

This is our local favorite. I know it's a great place when my kids ask to go back time after time! Great chowder! Great Chile verde! Homemade biscuits. Nice thick bacon. Eggs Benedict is some of the best we have had anywhere in the area! If you get to meet Penny, that is a bonus! Her smiles & laughter are worth coming back for!

“Great breakfast!”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

The last morning of our mini vacation we decided to try Penny's, we were not disappointed. Our waitress was just great and made sure our eggs were cooked just how we like them. Everyone enjoyed their breakfast and we did not walk away hungry. Large portions and very dog friendly as we had three golden retrievers with us. We called ahead to make sure there was room on the outdoor patio for six people and three dogs. When we arrived, which was just a short two blocks from our hotel the table was waiting for us with our menus already waiting. Our waitress (sorry I don't remember her name) was so very nice and friendly. We will be back on our next trip to Pismo!

“Great local breakfasts”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

Again, another no-frills eatery popular among locals that excels by serving up large portions via excellent service and for a reasonable price. Food is served hot and cooked correctly. If not, they will pull out the stops to make things right. Easy parking, too.
