Consistently excellent

Great place! Everything's good. You will not be disappointed. Fresh quality ingredients. Large portions. Homemade strawberry jam. Enjoy their great coffee while you wait on the weekends.

Pete's Breakfast House is terrific. They understand Gluten Free (even for a celiac) and everything I've tasted is homemade and delicious.

Pete's is by far the best Breakfast place around. Anywhere. They have a huge selection of natural, REAL food to choose from on their menu- not to mention their daily specials. Gilberto is the best breakfast cook (he's had lots of practice- he's worked there forever). We love this place!

Pete's is another Ventura institution. We started dining here when my son worked with the husband of one of the owner/servers and we were converted. Not that they needed our business: delicious breakfasts and lunches served to locals and visitors, prepare to stand in line on the weekends.

Took the entire family for breakfast. I gave heard nothing but good things about Petes. No frills good food so we gave it a try. The problem with going out with a baby is they have limited patience. In this case I was peeved even before the one year old complained. We waited and waited for coffee. We waited and... More

Really liked the laid-back, friendly vibe at this breakfast/lunch spot that is clearly a local favorite. I had a simple two-eggs-and-bacon breakfast and my son had a grilled chicken and cheese sandwich, that cottage potatoes. I had potatoes and opted for the home-made biscuit, which was fluffy and perfect. Nothing was more than $10, and there were specials such as... More

This place has great breakfasts. One of the things that impressed me the most was that the staff was very friendly. A good thing for a breakfast place, as it sets up the rest of your day nicely. I had the biscuit special, with 2 eggs, sausage, bacon and a side of potatoes. It was all very tasty. My wife... More
