Sometimes, you're in the mood for a burger, potatoes and eggs, or just about any variety of classic, American diner fare.  It might be four O'clock on a Sunday morning... but if you're in Yuma, and hunger strikes at any time, Penny's Diner is ready and available, as they're open to satisfy your hunger 24 hours a day, 7 days of the week.

Photo:  Chrome... glitz... nostalgia... Penny's Diner shines in the desert sun, like a beacon to breakfast lovers!  It's 0730 on Sunday, September 16, 2012, and I'm ready to enjoy breakfast at Penny's Diner.

Photo:  Penny's Diner is faux-1950's diner decor, complete with chrome seats at the large breakfast bar, black and white tile floor, vinyl upholstery, photos of classic cars and motorcycles, and a James Dean poster or two.  Note the open kitchen to the left of the photo, which definitely reminds me of diners from my childhood.

Photo:  I sat at the end of the breakfast bar, which allowed me a great view of the workings of an interesting restaurant.  When I dine alone, I prefer to sit at the breakfast bar, as it allows me to mingle with the staff, other solo diners, and I'm usually rewarded with some fantastic people watching.  Penny's Diner features an open kitchen, which allows me to watch the chef in action.

Photo:  I had the pleasure to be served by Jenny, who at first was quite quiet and reserved, but later became quite chatty, and filled me in about the working of the Penny's Diner chain.  It took a bit of "doin'" on my part for her to allow me to take her photo, but in the end, I was rewarded with a photo of a hard-working gal, who is truly a hospitable server, and a nice person.

Photo:  Well, it was only fair that Jenny returned the "flavor," as she snapped my photo, as I was about ready to enjoy my delicious breakfast.  Note the large glass of ice water, complete with lemon slice, which is a "freebee," and you don't even have to ask for it.  The diner in the background seems to understand that his photo will be flashed around the world on my web site, as he waves, and mouths, "Hi mom, hi dad!"

Photo:  I ordered two fried eggs, hash brown potatoes, sourdough toast, and endless cups of delicious coffee for breakfast.  The price for everything, coffee and tax included, was $6.29, which is quite a bargain for September, 2012.  The menu gave the breakfast the cutesy-poo name of "310 To Yuma," and you may have seen the movie of the same name.  Despite the foo-foo name, the breakfast was as good as it gets, both in quality and in value.

Penny's Diner is definitely reminiscent of a classic, American diner, from the 1950's.  The food isn't fancy, but it's good, wholesome, "comfort food," and the friendly staff will make you feel at home.  If you're looking for delicious food at a reasonable price, head to Yuma and enjoy classic dining at Penny's Diner.
