Peter's is home to an exclusive breakfast sausage that is second to none. People come a long way for a taste of these beauties. The morning fare is pretty standard and loaded with a heaping helping of home fries. Coffee is great and the service is with a smile. Because you are already downtown, you are at the centre of...

Peter's is a good family diner. The staff are very friendly and accommodating - kids and grandkids welcome! The food is good. Nothing spectacular but good, solid fare. The prices are very reasonable. Breakfasts are especially done well.

We've been going there for years and find it to be our favourite restaurant in Perth for their informal breakfasts and casual mid-afternoon snacks. Seen a few staff changes over time (Marie keeps going on forever ........Yaaaaay Marie) but with few exceptions they have always been friendly, accomodating and full of good humour.

Peter's is a place I call home, I've probably eaten there thousands of times since around 1994, and I could say I've only had maybe 5 meals I was dissatisfied with. Very basic, bland, family style food, but if you want the same thing the same way, this is the place.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a fellow traveler who regularly works in Perth and was staying at the same Inn as us. We ordered hot beef & turkey sandwich dinners...both tasted very good and with generous portions. This is a place where the locals go to eat...decor clean and simple with mainly bench seating. Service was a little... More

Fairly average. Michael's Table down the street is better for lunch, but their prices rise significantly for dinner. Note that they close fairly early on week nights so get there by 7 at the latest.

Very busy for lunch, didn't get a menu or our table cleaned for 5+ minutes after we sat down. Coconut cream pie was very good, the rest, average.

We have had a few meals here and never leave hungry - quite opposite, in fact! The portions are large and delicious. Huge menu with enough choices to satisfy any customer. Excellent service - very welcoming staff.

We've been to this place twice in the past month and enjoyed their breakfast special both times. The service was fast, pleasant and efficient and while it's a busy little place we had no problem finding a table. They also have an ice-cream bar at the side if you just want a cone or dish, with very tasty ice cream.

Seen this establishment many times in pasing, didn't look like much from the outside. WOW! was I ever wrong. I had the daily special, pizza soup and a clubhouse, coffee and coconut cream pie. It's hard to clasify restaurant fair as homemade, but this place really has it together. Better pie than grandma or mother make (sorry mom) reasonably priced
