Been here often but most recently for Easter breakfast. Penfold's is only open for breakfast and lunch from 5:30am to 3:00pm daily. On special occasions such as Mother's Day and Father's Day expect to wait for seating unless you are there before 8:00am. Excellent service from very experienced servers. Once seated your order is promptly taken, drinks refilled without having... More

First off, I agree with the previous reviewer Penfolds omelettes are delicious as is their biscuits. Very tasty! Their pancakes are a generous portion, they are not just about quantity as they are fluffy and yummy! IF you are addicted to cinnamon rolls as my hubby is GIVE Penfolds a shot, be in the know that they are gigantic!!!! A... More

To be clear the food in this well-established eatery near Old Town Temecula is damn good, most especially the breakfast menu where our favorite is their California Omelette and their amazing homemade biscuits. They used to offer a dinner menu as well that offered many savory treats but they close now in the afternoon and the dinner choices have become... More

Made my annual trip to ride motorcycles in the area with friends. I had always just stopped at Denny's before, but right across the street, Just off of I-15, I see Penfolds Cafe, so I pulled in to give it a try. First off, I'll say that I was there fairly early (8 am). It was not at all busy,... More

Solid place for brunch after a weekend of wine tasting! If you're here on a Saturday or Sunday with a group (4+), be prepared for a wait! We usually grab a coffee somewhere, put our names in and then go for a walk. Huge menu with all your standards, plus some low-carb and other dieter friendly options as well as... More

Came here on a Saturday morning with two people waited about 20 mins for a table. Entire staff was super friendly. Menu is quite large American fare, portions are very generous. Had the waffle and bacon combo with eggs. Waffle was good and warm, eggs were a little cold and bacon was somewhat undercooked. Had a side of wheat toast... More

Had Salisbury steak dinner that took up half the Platter!, with big red mashed potatoes helping, gravy and corn with a homemade bread role and salad. Bought a cinnamon role for breakfast that is the size of a breadloaf. Good flavor, but be prepared for large portions. We were able to park our Little truck around the corner where several... More

Several retired friends and I enjoy a weekly Harley ride to various locations. We like meeting in the Temecula's Old Town. Being retired we like riding during the week to avoid the crowds. Our favorite meeting spot is, Penfolds Cafe. We like it because the food and service are fantastic. They easily accommodate us whether we are a large or... More

Good comfort food, amazing prices. The Chicken Fried Steak with mashed potatoes comes with vegetable, salad and roll. You can hardly eat all of it, it's huge! However, my husband had the pastrami sandwich and said it was too salty. The restaurant smelled like burnt toast on this visit -- however, we've been here many times and this was the... More
