I have visited Pete's a couple of times and the experience has been good each time. Simple set up and casual ambience. I have had the opportunity to try a strawberry smoothie which had a very interesting smooth taste to it. The burritos Never disappoint and the quesadillas are also very delicious, both beef and chicken. They had a simple... More

I know Pete's is known for their Mexican burritos, but they make some pretty good pancakes too. The restaurant is quite small, but has an open kitchen so you can see what they're cooking and create delicious food. I went for breakfast/brunch a number of times while I was working in the iHub building. Everyone I know really enjoys their... More

We decided to try Pete's for a family late lunch out and were not disappointed. We tried a variety of dishes, including pumpkin soup (delicious), bean burrito, chicken burrito, chicken quesadillas and cheese quesadillas. Everything was neatly presented. The flavours were spot on, with the right degree of spiciness for the burritos and the chicken quesadillas. The staff were courteous... More

This is a great place for the budding workaholic. They have everything you need to keep working and the food is fantastic. Also love the themed black board menu.

Beef Burritos are fantastic! Real black beans and the tortilla is not a chapati but a real flour tortilla. Finaly Mexican food comes to town! The owner Pete is a great guy who takes this very seriously. Oh I almost forgot coffee lovers this place has excellent coffee! Looking forward to having breakfast!

When one walks in to Pete’s, one’s first impression is “Kumbe! This place is small!” But look up the steps and to the left and you’ll see plenty of spacious outdoor seating. My friend and I both ordered beef burritos (grilled chicken and plain bean are also available). Service was friendly. The place was noisy, so one might want to... More
