OC Weekly's Description
Whenever we visit Penguin Cafe, we order the Penguin Burger combo: a glorious half-pound patty sparsely decorated with lettuce, pickles and a tomato. It seems unremarkable, something you can grill in your back yard, but the Penguin Burger is the sweetest around: a luscious, massive pillow of juice, man's Perfect Burger. It's served with a side of Thousand Island dressing and thin, crispy fries.
Tips from foursquare
Great local breakfast joint. I love that they don't need to load up my plate with a ton of food and it's so affordable.
Best sat morning breakfast! A total locals spot where you always feel welcome.
This is the best "greasy spoon" diner in Laguna Beach.
Get a peanut butter and chocolate shake! They are quite good.
Eggs Benedict are only available on weekends. Be sure to order them when you come. Best locally owned and run diner!
