Penny's has been around for decades and could use some sprucing up, but it's solid for all the typical diner foods at any hour.

My friends and I met here for lunch before getting our nails done. We came around 1:30PM on a Friday and there were a few tables taken but it was pretty open. The inside looked like your typical diner: Formica tables, booths covered in vinyl,...More

We stopped at the diner on our way back from Cape Cod and glad we did as both the food and service was very good. Also a nice selection of food plus good coffee cannot go wrong sure does beat fast food.

Over the last 40 years, I have often stopped at Penny's diner, always welcoming, always reliable. Coffee, breakfast, lunch or dinner, desserts, it's a great place to hang out with your friends and family.

The pork souvlaki on pita , with a nice tzatziki sauce, is worth a trip to Penny's diner. Sure, the old gal is showing her age, but it's still respectable enough to bring friends and clients. Rice pudding also killer, btw.

My husband and I stopped here for a quick breakfast on the way to the airport. The diner staff was friendly and service was efficient. The egg dishes were fresh and tasty. Overall a good experience. We would go back.
