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!

My husband and I stopped for a late breakfast on our way up the coast. The food was outstanding! We are from Texas, so believe me when I say the salsa is awesome! The atmosphere is like a "home town café!" We sat on the patio and enjoyed the cool morning breeze. If you are looking for a great breakfast... More

As diners go this one is great - though don't come expecting gourmet fare. The blueberry pancakes that I had were top notch and the strawberry jam is right up there with them. My dining companions reported similarly on their choices. The waitress was especially chatty about the likes and dislikes of children and she was a hit with my... More

It gets crowded here so come early and they close at 2:00 sharp! If you are looking for a place that has a variety of breakfast items, and delicious potatoes- then stop in, They are... More

Went there for breakfast and we were not disappointed! Service was great - friendly and attentive. The food was so yummy! I had the feta scramble - three eggs, feta cheese, spinach, mushrooms and onions. It was chock full of the veggies and cheese, and cooked just right. You have to have their biscuits along with the homemade strawberry jam,... More

A delicious fun local restaurant which we must visit every trip to Ventura. My husband has tried different menu items and has enjoyed all of them but I always get the strawberry waffle--a delicious waffle with fresh strawberries and bananas, a small amount of chocolate sauce, homemade granola and vanilla ice cream! Pretty and delicious! It is always crowded so... More

I made a point of dropping in here for lunch on a day trip from LA after reading some TripAdvisor reviews. Since I didn't arrive until 1:30-1:45ish even the nooners had moved on, but Pete's was still open, which worked out really well for me since it wasn't crazy busy. Parked in the vacant lot next door. When I came... More
