This is our favorite breakfast spot when we come to Pismo, but this time I decided to have a salad. Not disappointed at all. Needless to say I was full and satisfied.

I am a omelette fanatic! Penny's favorite omelette is on the top 5 I've ever eaten and I've eaten omelettes from coast to coast

Very good lunch. The shrimp salad and clam chowder were very good. This is a local favorite and having had a filling breakfast and lunch we understand why. It's small and busy but very good food for the price.

Not impressed at all & surprised it received such high ratings. The steak was tough, the bloody mary had no taste it was like drinking straight tomato juice, the country fried steak was average,& lastly the chile verde was average but the beans where salty. Not a place i would recommend or return.

We were looking for a good quick breakfast when passing through Pismo Beach and Penny's was just the right spot. They have a wide range of breakfast offerings, all at a reasonable price and everything we had was excellent. The service was very good and we would definitely go back again.

Great breakfasts from scramblers to omelets to the kitchen sink. Try the Mexican Hat with homemade chorizo, awesome. I am very fond of their chili verde, also home made and full of pork and green chilies. Add that to an omelette with cheese and you have a bountiful breakfast. Make sure nad ask for the home fries, potatoes, onions, green... More

We stopped after a quick Google check for breakfast places before heading home from a little visit to Pismo. We chose it because it was close to our hotel but we ended up being pleasantly surprised. The selections sounded so good, we had a hard time choosing something. When we did, we were not disappointed in the chicken fried steak... More

The delicious surfers breakfast fed two of us with leftovers that would have fed two more. The ham steak was great, the biscuits and gravy would make grandma jealous!!! The most painful part of breakfast was having to leave this deliciousness on the plate because we were so incredibly full. Friendly staff, clean environment a must try for anyone visiting... More
