Penelope is one of my favourite cafes in Parnell. It's got character and class and Adam and his team are awesome. Best coffees and to add to the experience Adam's Latte Art strikes a sweet spot with every coffee I have out there. They go out of their way to give you a personalised approach to their service. They always remember all their regular customers by name. I always get greeted by my name and the crew at Penelope even know my favourite coffee to go. The food that they serve is top notch too. High quality and well presented. Kudos to Adam and his crew at Penelope.

They go that extra mile to deliver quality coffee, food and experience. 

Excellent sun in the morning while having coffee & breakfast, as you people watch. One of the nicest spots to sit amonst other Parnell cafes. Food is good, portions very fair and better priced than usual.
