The diner for people who love good food

Welcome to Penrose Diner! For more than 60 years we’ve been serving South Philly. Family-owned and operated since the 1990s, we've become known as the diner for people who love good food.

Our extensive menu of fresh, homemade dishes offers everything you’d expect from a diner—and so much more. Kids love the fresh-baked cookies at our in-house bakery, and adults will love our fast, friendly service, full bar, free parking, and fresh, high-quality ingredients.

Penrose is beloved in the South Philly community, where our regular customers have voted us Best Diner eight years in a row. We’re also conveniently close to the stadiums and the airport.

We’re open early and late for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late-night bites. Check out our menus here. See you soon!
