So glad we found this little hole in the wall on tripadvisor! It was clearly a favorite of the locals and for good reason. Great food and friendly service. I will definitely go here again when I am in the area.

You need to be a local or have a GPS to find this place. Its open at 7 a.m. and is full by 7:10 and stays that way till 2 p.m.. People who work there love the place. Food excellent and large portions. Great Ham and Egg breakfast. Service right on and wait is manageable. Don't expect fancy; Just good... More

Checked a few reviews, they were all positive, and true. Got there around 10ish, the restaurant was pretty full, however seating and service was both fast and friendly. Not really a tourist spot (a good sign) filled with local families and nearby workers. Another restaurant added to my list, for the next trip to California.

I found this place online while looking for places to eat since I'm not from this area. It is a small restaurant with great food, great prices, and great service. Once we arrived there we found out that the restaurant had been on the Food Networks Dinners, Dive-ins, and drives show so we were excited to see what this place... More

After a short wait we got a place at the counter. Service was great and the food was excellent. I highly recommend the pancake roll, it kept me going through the 10 hour flight home.

We stopped at Pete's Breakfast House on our way from Santa Barbara to San Diego on a Wednesday morning. Never been here before, but followed good reviews from Internet sites and were not disappointed. There were a few people waiting outside and we hesitated if we should delay our drive, plus we had a large dog with us and the... More

Freshly made, delicious food in large portions. Perfect for breakfast or lunch, and be prepared to wait for a table. It's well worth it, though! Staff is friendly and very accommodating. Oh, and Pete's was featured on Guy Fieri's "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives."

Pete's is my go-to place for breakfast whenever I am in Ventura. Everything is made to perfection with the finest ingredients around. If you're a breakfast eater like me, you will absolutely LOVE Pete's!

This is a place that all the locals in the know go to eat. It is very reliably good for all breakfast items. Favorites are their waffle, pancakes, presto pesto omelet with egg whites, the best Huevos Rancheros, the frittata no matter how you have it. Be prepared for a wait at prime morning hours.

Saw it on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. It was that good. Fabulous chili verde omelette. Great staff, fast and friendly. We will be back. Always a line out the door but it goes fast. Don't let that line scare you. It's worth the wait!
