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

I had huevos rancheros (with additional salsa verde) and they were phenomenal. Also, could not stop from eating the biscuit with homemade strawberry jam. Yes, I waited 30 minutes to be seated which is not uncommon on a weekend but it was well worth it. Loved the staff and neighborhood feeling.

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.

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.
