Cooking, Staff, and location is great...

The only reason this doesn't get 5 stars is because of the amount of flies. It will take a while to get a table, and that is expected. The servers are on point, and the food is yummy. Ask for the secret off menu menu!

Great for a quiet breakfast. Food was great and service was great. Menu had a good selection, something for everyone it seemed.

We were there on a weekday and it was busy so I can't imagine what it's like on a weekend. The service was prompt and friendly. We were given the choice of eating inside or out and we chose the cute little patio beside the restaurant. The menu was varied enough to cover everything from waffle sundaes to the working... More

Pete's is a long time Ventura favorite. They are only open for breakfast and lunch and are pretty small so you might have a bit of a wait but the food is so worth it! Everything they make is fresh and they accommodate special requests. Their waffles are amazing and the biscuits and gravy are to die for. Make sure... More

We return to Pete's each year, with our annual vacation to the area. This place has SOUL. The employees are happy, chatty and proud of their diner. The oatmeal is the best ever - made to order with walnuts, bananas and raisins. Egg dishes are equally wonderful - omelets made to order, and typical huevos ranchers made perfectly . It's... More

No wonder Pete's is rated best for breakfast! I was afraid that such a small diner would not be able to accommodate my elderly aunt and her walker. However, everything worked out perfectly. We were able to park right in front of the restaurant, so she could exit the car and walk in easily. In addition, we arrived just before... More

We visited Pete's many years ago while vacationing in Ventura. We came across it during an Internet search and felt very lucky to have found it. We remarked then that it would likely become a regular breakfast spot if we ever lived in Ventura. Since then we have indeed moved to the area and Pete's is one of the top... More
