Penfolds has been a go to breakfast spot for my family for years now. It's quaint, the service is good and the food is tasty. I highly recommend the breakfast tacos.

We were traveling from AZ to Encinitas; when we got to Temecula Joe asked me if I would like to drive through Old Temecula, of course I said yes as I love that kind of thing. As we approached the end of Old Temecula and began to turn around to go back we found ourselves staring at Penfolds Café. We... More

If you love French toast, their Cinnamon Roll French toast is unbelievable. They use their giant 9" rolls and dip in egg and fry. Enough for 2 people to share and both can have a heart attack. Nice touch you can have fresh fruit as a side! Rest of menu is coffee shop good but nothing special.

Our hotel didnt provide breakfast so we were going to stop at the gas station for coffee. Penfolds was across the street and looked cute. All sorts of collectables line the walls. The place was busy for an early sunday morning but the staff was attentive and pleasant. The greek omelet was tasty with just the right amount of feta.... More

The best pancakes here. Buttermilk, multigrain, and even sweet potato. Oh my, they are wonderful. Coffee just strong enough. And service was great.

This very popular locals hangout only serves breakfast and lunch and they do it well. Be careful when ordering because the portions can be overwhelming. Cute little place with a lot of knic knacs and keepsakes lining the walls. Food is good and reasonably priced. Well worth stopping in.

This restaurant packs in the locals and travelers due to its great breakfasts and cheerful waitstaff. We have eaten here twice while visiting and can't say enough about the food and service. Best avoid Sunday's as it is very crowded, with 15 min. waits being common.

We came to Penfolds, because we left The Mill in Murretta after a lousy experience. We'd been to Penfolds a few times in years past and It was really wonderful. Great Menu, Great service and the Chicken Caesar wrap I had was really good. It came with fries or slaw or fruit. I ordered fruit and boy o boy was... More
