We sat at the counter and were quickly talked to by just about every worker that passed by. The food was great, but the experience was even better.

There is almost always a wait at Pete's Breakfast House and once you have eaten there you will understand why. The restaurant was owned for years by the original Pete who has now been succeeded by the second Pete (who jokingly refers to himself as RePete). He is from Australia and is just as friendly and welcoming. The quality and... More

The Pancake Roll Up is so delicious, as are the biscuits (w/gravy or jam), and the breakfast burritos (you get two small easy to handle burritos rather than one biggy). You can't go wrong with Petes ... even if you do have to wait usually. It's worth it. If you'd like to do a "take-out" order you will have to... More

All I can say is they have toys for your kids that they bring to the table. Can we say genius?!?! Brilliant, especially because there is usually a long line. But some weekends they have little band playing on the street to keep guests entertained while they wait. Truly a gem of a place!

You can get the "usual" breakfast or try some of their specialty creations like pancake roll. Whatever you order, plan to have a homemade biscuit with it. not breakfast on a budget, but a good local breakfast while in Ventura.

Good food. Very helpful and accommodating. We had a larger group and I was kept up to date on the status of my table even though it was very busy.

We had breakfast there. Very good. I would suggest their specials. The Corn Beef Hash is good but not as good as Mrs Olsen's. You can't go wrong but my favorite is still Mrs. Olsen's.

We had a great breakfast. We had the Cornbeef and eggs and the biscuits and graveyard. Both were excellent. The OJ was amazing

Pete's is good food, fun wait staff, interesting mix of locals and visitors, and great diner ambiance. Tip.. Even if you have a wait- it is fine. Cross the street and nib at 2 or 3 shops. All good. Corned beef hash was good/made from scratch. Eggs cooked right. Baskets with the home made strawberry jam.. Perfect!!
