We went for breakfast a couple times last week. Very inexpensive and well prepared breakfast. Nice to see that not all the diners have disappeared. If you live in Richmond this is a hidden gem.

This is an exceptional greasy spoon/diner run by a lovely lady named Penny. Penny will berate you, like your a family member, if you don't finish your meal, so be careful how much you order. The portions are large and the prices are very reasonable. Located at the bottom of Trite Street in the marina, regular customers include local fishermen,... More

This restaurant is located at the end of Trites Road inside the gated marine complex. We arrived around 11:30 AM on this wet Thursday afternoon to avoid the lunch hour rush and there were a few people having coffee. Most, if not all, of the customers were local workers or residents. The only reason we came to the restaurant was... More

Penny's cafe is a long time fixture, located in the business end of a busy fishing yard at the end of Trites Road in Richmond. Most regular attendees try not to tell anyone about this sleeper to keep it to themselves! What you will find is a hole in the wall with a hilariously acerbic owner/operator, a sprinkling of fishers... More

Breakfast is a basic meal, nothing fancy but sustaining, a foundation for the day and lashings of coffee. The Boot delivers! Well done food, great price, interesting atmosphere but if you need to rest your face on the table no one will object, lots of coffee and have I mentioned the great price. I will go every chance I get.

Penny's Place, aka The FIsherman's Boot, is a Steveston institution. The people who grumble about it are entitled yuppies who expect too much. Penny's Place is a cafe in the Paramount Building at the foot of Trite's in Steveston, specializing in hearty breakfasts and lunches (dirt cheap) and take out sandwiches. This is a place for fishers and locals, so... More

This restaurant is in truth a dive. I recognize the proprietor as formerly operating the kitchen at the Army Navy and Air Force Vets at 11900 # 1 Road. The restaurant primarily exists to service the staff of the Steveston Harbour Authority and local fishermen. I was there once and while the food wasn't bad the ambience is terrible
