    Best find in Grammercy!

    This place is quaint and cozy with amazing food. The veggie burger as a sandwich or as a salad is the best I've had in NYC. The hummus appetizer is a very generous portion and served with pita, wheat bread, and fresh granny apples. The guacamole is excellent, too. The wine list is reasonable and the red velvet cake is to die for! The staff is always ultra friendly as well.

    No mac and cheese

    Just got delivery. People were very nice and delivery was efficient. Mac n Cheese was basically tasteless and swimming in souplike sauce. Wouldn't recommend although I hear all else is good. On a better note- cucpakes- YUM

    Great funky place

    I am so glad to have Penelope in my neighborhood. The salads and sandwiches are creative, tasty, and a bargain. The pot pie is the ultimate comfort food and brunch is not to be missed. The only bad part is that (too many) other people love the brunch, too, so it is always packed. I wish that there were more funky spots like this in the area.

    Salads to die for

    I've tried going for brunch but always give up as the wait is interminable, so last week I went on Sunday early evening and there was no one there. Our waitress could not have been sweeter or more helpful. On her recommendation I got the turkey meatball salad which was unbelievable! So, so good. And my friend is equally obsessed with their veggie burger salad - a veggie salad with protein is always a plus. Skip brunch time and head there any other time of the week for delicious food.

    Unorganized

    When it comes to food, the portions are big and the food is great but keep in mind that the dishes are all very simple. The restaurant can be crowded at times but it's actually quite cozy, in fact.. you'll feel like you're eating in a little apartment. The only problem we had was that the service needed some work. We didnt get out drinks until our entrees came. Between 2 people, we ordered 4 dishes and 1 of them never showed up. Our waiter said no one knew what happened to it so they took it off of our tab but we were disappointed because we were mainly looking foward to that 1 dish.

    Very good experience overall!

    Went in at 8:15 am on Monday morning. Only a few patrons. Service was quick and thorough. Lovely, relaxed atmosphere. Seating not so comfortable, hard benches and small hard chairs, but I am pregnant and it's hard to get comfortable anyhow, Decent coffee, fresh-squeezed juice, and mushroom/swiss omelette was very nicely done. Fries were tasty, hot and crisp. Great blueberry muffin just out of the oven! Value was acceptable. Wish they had a child's menu (bill was $40 for 2 adults 1 small child). Then again, I didn't ask if they would *make* a smaller, cheaper dish for her... Will definitely go again. Probably tomorrow!

    I'm eating the apple and warm brie sandwich righ now and it is sooooo good. This place is seriously my jam. I eat here at least once a week. The cupcakes are really yummy too.
