At this place you feel comfortable right away seeing that they know what they're doing! The service was good, quick, fun and friendly. The breakfast here was at our three week road trip absolutely the best! A visit that made great memories to us just for the experience (when back home far away from California). Thank you! :)

We stopped here for breakfast while in Pismo Beach. This is a cute diner and it was a perfect breakfast stop for us! I had The Local Favorite. I absolutely loved the omlette as it was very different and creative. I thought the sweet apples were such a fantastic topping for the omlette. I also ordered the biscuit and gravy,... More

This place was recommended by motel and we were not disappointed. Everything thing was excellent. Staff friendly, food came out fast, cooked perfect and large portions. Will definitely come back. It is walking distance from pier area but there is plenty of parking on street. Place is somewhat small inside with seating outside. Bottom line, can't go wrong coming here.

Meal was but it seems to me that they cater to the locals and just put up with the folks from out of town. I say that because we have been there a couple of times just to make sure we weren't wrong the first time.The waitress was so busy laughing and talking with some of the customers she seemed... More

On a recent trip to Pismo Beach we stopped at Penny's. We had the eggs Benedict and the John Wayne chicken fried steak and eggs. Simply the best we have ever eaten. I recommend this restaurant 100%. Enjoy

This is a funky, local breakfast spot in a lovely beach town. Clearly a very popular spot that was bustling with good energy, pleasant service and inviting smells! My husband and I always split our entre and we were not disappointed with the portions. We had a vegetable omelet that had fresh seasonal vegetables with a tasty side of hash... More

This awesome indoor and outdoor diner was just a block from our VRBO. It's obviously very popular as it was packed. Great selections on the menu and a staff that aims to please. The prices are great and the food was delicious! I think you'll love this Pismo beach favorite.

We loved this place....it is truly a "diner" atmosphere with great food and plenty of it!! The wait staff is friendly and work hard. Loved the "American" memorabilia décor and extra outside dining area. Definitely recommend this diner if you are in or near the Pismo Beach area.

Penny's was recommended to me for scrumptious clam chowder, and it did not disappoint. Nice and thick with more clams than I've ever had in clam chowder which was refreshing(usually more potatoes than clams,has been my experience at other restaurants)
