I can't believe it - perfect Bacon!!!!

A little diner, amusingly decorated all at once for every holiday! I ordered pancakes thinking it would be a small stack - it was like a pan "CAKE" and delicious. I ordered crisp bacon and it might just be the Best Bacon I've ever ordered out - perfect. I honestly did not try any of the... read more

We went to Papa Pete's for lunch today, although we have been there many times for breakfast. I had the best Reuben sandwich I've ever had, and that's saying something. It was perfect. We go to Papa Pete's regularly as we find it's the best place for miles around for breakfast. No complaints whatsoever...and we appreciate their bargain card for... More

I don't understand why this place gets the business they do other than being the last stop for 20 miles until you get to Wilmington. My husband and I enjoy going out to breakfast but won't revisit this establishment. Food was at best "OK" and expensive. It took 45 min to get our breakfast - servers seem to want to... More

The food here and the service was just great. Plenty of parking and the owners were there to meet you and you can get breakfast all day.

I visited Papa Pete's this morning for breakfast with my Aunt; I was greeted with a smile by the owner (as I always am) and told I could sit where ever I would like; I had coffee while I waited for my Aunt to arrive; We had sausage, bacon and cheddar omelettes, whole wheat toast and home fries; the service...

Small roadside breakfast/lunch spot at the base Woodford Mountain, who's specialty is their giant pancakes. Only about ten tables inside, and there is usually a wait. Everything was prepared well, from the eggs to the pancakes. I personally got the "lumberjack" breakfast. The pancake that's part of the lumberjack is not as big as the individual large pancake you can... More

Try their amazing omelettes and pancakes served on a pizza tin--really! A friend who knows the town inside and out recommended it, and how right he was.

I have eaten here before and remember the food being excellent. However, that was quite some time ago. I recently stopped here on my way from Brattleboro to Bennington. It is one of the first places to stop when coming down from Wilmington. I really needed to use the restroom and this was my only purpose for stopping. I walked... More

Thanks for the review on using my restrooms which are reserved for sit down customers only. Signs are posted on the front door when you enter & also on the front window. First you were the 10-15th person that came into my restaurant to use my restrooms & not purchase a single item. Grant it you said you would purchase... More

My family of four got whacked for $80 for breakfast including the 20% for the tip. Food was good, but nothing to write home about. The atmosphere was that of your typical diner. We did not have to wait for a table, however, take that for what it is worth.
