Great place for breakfast!

We stopped here as a recommendation from our hotel staff. It was a Sunday morning and boy did we get there just in time. Got a great table with a fantastic waitress. Then the line started to form outside. We got to try the omelettes, eggs and bacon, biscuit and pancakes. The pancakes were more... read more

Second time at Pete's, still an excellent breakfast place. Waffles are probably the best I have ever had. Only problem at Pete's is getting a table.

We arrived shortly after they opened for breakfast on a Thursday morning and the place filled up quickly with locals. I don't know why; it can't be the quality of the food or service, which was just average. The waitress erred on two orders of four at our table thus disrupting our dining experience. My French Toast "Sandwich" was nothing... More

You know you've stumbled across a great breakfast place when the queue is 30 minutes wait at 10am and boy was it worth the wait. We had various dished from the pancakes, classic breakfast and feta scramble thing. All tasty, waitress constantly topped up our coffees. Go here for breakfast, it's awesome.

I wish Simi Valley, Thousand Oaks, or Moorpark had this scrumptious breakfast house. We had the huevos rancheros with the home made salsa- yum! Also had the pancake with the fruits and yogurt- excellent and filling! Family friendly. Atmosphere is a simple breakfast diner- nothing special, but it works. The owners are friendly. They need better or more friendly servers.... More

Though this little breakfast house can get quite busy with long waits, the food is worth it. I love the thin pancakes with fruit on top. Service is normally good to excellent and always with a smile.

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!
