This is not your typical breakfast fast-food service eatery . Everything is per order, made to order and as you like it. They are constantly busy during their breakfast and lunch hours so don't be afraid if you see a crowd. They have ample seating even by the scenic creek and all indoors. It is one of our must-go-to-while-in-town restaurant... More

It had been a long time since I last ate at. Peter's but had good memories and the reviews were good. We were not disappointed. We got there early (7am) so it wasn't too busy yet. Service was good and so was the food. By 8am it was getting crowded. I recommend.

We have eaten at Peter's several times on Sunday on our way out of Cherokee. It's always busy and the food and service are pretty consistent. However, the last two times we have eaten there we were very disappointed. Service was not nearly as good as previously (I had to get up and ask for tea twice, a straw, and... More

We stopped here for 2 mornings for breakfast while staying in Cherokee. We had seat right by window on river so was a beautiful view to start the morning. The food was super and the staff beyond excellent. Prices were good.

Almost stopped at the Frontier Pancake House in Cherokee but then I saw that Peter's had WAAAAY better reviews. We had stayed at Harrah's overnight and were on our way home. Going to Peter's was out of our way but so worth it. The crispiest of bacon, the fluffiest of pancakes, perfectly cooked eggs, and surprisingly great coffee. I highly... More

Peter's is a tradition with my parents spanning dozens of visits to Cherokee. This particular trip was only my second but I was very pleased. The sign outside may say "best breakfast in town", and I am quite sure it's in the running. What can you expect at Peter's? Let's begin with a line of folks waiting on a table,... More

When in the area and decide to have breakfast, my husband and I usually eat here. It is often crowded since it is open year round, and the majority of other restaurant in the area, close for winter. The waitresses don't check back enough to suit me, but they are friendly, and the food is good.

Peter's Pancakes has wonderful breakfasts. I have tried many of their options and love the grainy, nutty pancakes, but beware of their butter -- it is NOT! Unhealthy margarine from a tub. Bring your own real butter!
