Part bar, part café, part bakery, Penelope is a welcome addition to the café-starved Curry Hill, where it’s easier to come by masala dosas than Nutella French toast and a chicken potpie. With brightly painted wainscoting and house-baked confections, the place feels like a New England country kitchen.
