Love it

Regulars flock here for a big traditional American breakfast. It's fun, delicious, noisy and always busy.

Really have a great menu! Enough so that sometimes things like the Salmon breakfast runs out! The line is often long but they somehow get people through reasonable quick! The service is also very good! Carrow's down on Harbor Blvd is really good too! Actually maybe even better. Try Pete's though, you'll enjoy it!

and this is one of the tops in all of the trips we've made. The omelets, frittata, scrambles, waffles, fresh fruits and of course juices and coffee....always the best! Without dragging on, this is a must-go for a serious breakfast. Be prepared to wait for a little most times as this place stays hopping nonstop. We have family that lives... More

In my many travels around North America, I have yet to find a better omelet than the ones made at Pete's Breakfast House in Ventura, California. How can one be so much better than another? I'm not sure--but this omelet was light and thin, almost like a crepe exterior and obviously not cooked on an overly-hot grill. The choices that... More

We stopped here as a recommendation from our hotel staff. It was a Sunday morning and boy did we get there just in time. Got a great table with a fantastic waitress. Then the line started to form outside. We got to try the omelettes, eggs and bacon, biscuit and pancakes. The pancakes were more like a sourdough receipe and... More

Second time at Pete's, still an excellent breakfast place. Waffles are probably the best I have ever had. Only problem at Pete's is getting a table.

We arrived shortly after they opened for breakfast on a Thursday morning and the place filled up quickly with locals. I don't know why; it can't be the quality of the food or service, which was just average. The waitress erred on two orders of four at our table thus disrupting our dining experience. My French Toast "Sandwich" was nothing... More

You know you've stumbled across a great breakfast place when the queue is 30 minutes wait at 10am and boy was it worth the wait. We had various dished from the pancakes, classic breakfast and feta scramble thing. All tasty, waitress constantly topped up our coffees. Go here for breakfast, it's awesome.
