Really packed at mornings. Very sweet and cozy ambient. Evrything looks and tastes like homemade. But be cautious about the portions' size. They're huge! If you bringing your kids the word is "share". My favourites picks were the bowl of seasonal fruits and yogurt + omelette w mushrooms and spinach. Frenchs may get offended about their French Toast, once it's not made w brioche bun.

We were a bit out of sync arriving in New York the day before so arrived at Penelope’s just after after opening. Lovely breakfast and possibly the nearer thing you’ll find to British cuppa tea in the US was lush. Great start to our busy visit.

We stayed a couple blocks away from Penelope and decided to wait in the line for breakfast one morning after we saw they had pumpkin waffles! Yummy! Well worth the wait. The food was fantastic. The service so-so. Tiny little place, but the food more than makes up for it!

Cute place in lower East, country chic. Friendly very attentive staff. Tasty coffee. Could have ordered lots, but chorizo sandwich was awesome.

We stayed just down the street from Penelope’s so we went for breakfast twice during our stay.

We were there soon after opening and the place quickly filled up which shows how good it is.

The food was fantastic and the service and price were good.
