We had a little family/friend reunion (5 people) lunch at Pete's and felt from moment one like an inconvenience to the the lady serving us food and drinks. We were told to wait when asking for drinks or napkins, and I got the feeling she either didn't want the job or was related to the owner. The food was good,... More

The staff is very accommodating to you and has always been very friendly. We like to sit out side and usually are the only ones.

Stopped here for lunch with my husband and ordered lunch from the daily specials menu. The price was very good and our sandwiches came with soup. The soup was Lentil soup and while very flavorful it was a bit salty. Turkey club was just fair. Spicy chicken wrap was good. I didn't hate my meal but I wouldn't go back.... More
