Description: PENELOPE IS A CAFE, BAKERY + WINE BAR. IT IS LIKE A WORN IN WELCOME MAT, YOUR FAVORITE FLIP FLOPS + A HUG WHEN YOU ARE MISSING HOME. Our homemade food is prepared with the best ingredients and a little creativity by a loving kitchen. It is a refreshing take on mom's recipes and is delivered to you here just the same, always with a smile and an encouragement to relax.

It's not very often when on holiday we eat at the same place twice but we ended up having breakfast at Penelope twice! We loved this place, great service, interesting menu items and awsome food. My husband loved the Penny Egg Sandwhich on croissant and I opted for the Buttermilk Pancakes with Blueberries and Syrup, the food on both occasions was great, fresh and generous portion size. Price with juice and coffee was fine. When we come back to NY we will be visiting again!

We were looking forward to having our breakfast at Penelope, expecting it to be a great place from all the good reviews. Unfortunately the food was mediocre at best. No better than an average neighborhood diner.
The ham and cheese omelette was less than unexceptional; dry and almost tasteless.My husband's waffle reminded him of diner menu item but more pricey. The coffee was good.
The service was good. However, we have to cross this one off our list as a place to revisit.

We saw it as one of the best brunch restaurants around us and it was indeed very good. Great coffee. I was just a bit disappointed with the size of the avocado toast - it was quite small and simple. But the salad was great.

Friendly staff, delicious HUGE portions, endless coffee and pretty setting. We had to wait 5-10 mins for a table but really worth it. Typical NYC prices but really yummy pancakes and fruit.
