Penny's All American Café in Pismo Beach is taking extra precaution as they reopen during the coronavirus pandemic.

Penny's has had their location in Pismo for 18 years and they had to reduce to only to-go service when the pandemic hit.

The café recently opened for dine-in service and the owners say they are following every guideline to keep their guests and employees as safe as possible.

The tables are set six feet apart, employees have their temperature checked every morning, and they are required to wear face masks and use sanitizer.

"The masks are hard," said owner Penny Rodriquez, "but in order for me to open my business I had to follow every guideline and money wise it hurts, you have to think of your community, you have to think of your customers, you have to think of your crew and regardless of how hard it is you just have to be blessed with what you have."

Even though Penny's is open for dine-in services, they are still operating with half of their wait staff.

Rodriquez says for customers that are still uneasy about dining-in, they still offer an online to-go service.
