My wife and I have come here several times for breakfast and are amazed at the number of choices on the menu. There is a limited staff but they work hard to serve and please. The eggs benedict are a hit.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.
