We had breakfast at Penny’s. I had the Sunrise Sandwich. I asked if the hash browns were crisp and the waitress said, “Do you want them crisp?” I said yes and they were perfect. The sandwich was wonderful – the sourdough bread was perfectly toasted and the sandwich held together perfectly. My husband had the corned beef hash. The hash... More

We had breakfast here while visiting Pismo Beach. We got there about 10:00 which was perfect as the crowd showed up by 10:15-10:30. I had the Local Favorite Omelet - they place baked apples in cinnamon on top of the omelet. It was perfect. It is obviously a local favorite so get their early, orders are hardy, with toast AND...

Had breakfast at Penny's for the first time. The menu has many options to choose from and they even have griddle options in smaller portions. The food was delicious and there eggs where bit greasy, which is always a plus. We tried the biscuit and gravy and we're pleased with them. The staff is super friendly and helpful. You can... More

Saw the reviews and couldn't wait to go here. Went for breakfast and it was a tiny place with outdoor seating as well. Went on a weekday so didn't have to wait more than about 10 mins. The tables are very close together, but it's a good way to see what looks good! It was not a problem for us.... More

As per title: good, standard diner fare. Solid breakfast...thick slices of canadian bacon on the eggs benedict (so much so the taste was a little unusual!). Very nice staff.

Being out of town you always want to find a great place to eat, especially for breakfast. Penny's has great food, especially the home fries and the cinnamon swirl French toast. The service was very fast and we had a very nice waitress! Definitely recommend to anyone looking for a great breakfast spot!

Great place for breakfast. I had the chicken fried steak one of the best I have ever had. I like my ice tea and our waiter always made sure it never went pass the half way mark. The special board full of great choices. Can eat inside or outside on the side patio.

Very busy little restaurant during the week. We had great service & good food. Went to purchase the strawberry/jalapeno jam but our waitress said the batch didn't turn out well so she gave us two, very nice gesture.

Best breakfast place in Pismo. Come every year for the car show over Father's Day weekend and this is our favorite breakfast place!
