This is an amazing cafe and museum to visit. The cafe holds a welcome for any visitors and has its own unique and interesting decor. The museum, entered through the cafe, houses a wonderful collection of ivory spanning several centuries. The carvings of the exhibits are exquisite and well worth a visit. The staff are welcoming and very pleased to practice their good English.

Waited 30 minutes to give our order. Food took 30 minutes to arrive: cold mussels, cold frites. Never got our full order. Luckily we were sitting outside in the sun, which was the only good point. The owner should employ more staff.

The whole upstairs of Peter Cafe is a Scrimshaw Museum. It is truly a one of a kind. The only other place on the planet I have seen this quality of scrimshaw work was in Nantucket at their whaling museum. This is a must see if you visit Horta Island in the Azores. It's just opposite the boat harbor and only about 1/2 a mile from where the cruise ships dock.

We loved Peter's Cafe, we'd eat here most evenings. The food is freshly prepared so yes, there's a bit of a wait but if you're with friends and talking about the day or going through photos together, you won't notice the wait - anyway, the Superbock will help pass more time!
