The food here is really good, consistent, and desserts, in particular are delicious. The turnover is fast, but it seems as though management encourages patrons to eat fast and clear out. They are nice, and never say anything, but I always feel rushed, so go elsewhere to relax more when I eat.

Love having breakfast here; waitresses remember you if you come regularly and remember what you like with your breakfast. Place is not very big and fills up quickly, even at 7:30 in the morning. They make poached eggs just right, oatmeal is home made (NOT yucky instant) and have a variety of breakfast dishes including pancakes, muffins, etc. Nothing fancy,... More

Always great, fast, friendly service. We frequent often and everything we have had has not disappointed. One particular time we were there the table next to us didn't get their order quite right. The waitress, which happened to be our waitress as well, quickly rectified the order, brought out a fresh plate and removed it from the bill. Now that's... More

This is my favorite place for breakfast. Great food and friendly staff makes for a great experience. You may have to wait in a long line, but it's worth it.

Traveling through the southern tier recently we decided to stop for gas and something to eat in Vestal and were really craving a "diner" type food and coffee. I just happened to google the word diner in the area and a few places popped up but Pete's was the closest and I am so glad we tried it. Sumptuous omelet,hearty... More

I go to Pete's once or twice a month, always for breakfast. Never disappointed. Re-done since the historic flood of 2011, nice modern, exceptionally clean space. Waitresses are great! Prompt service. Very popular. Enjoy a great diner experience! Pete runs a great spot! Gosh knows Pete has a lot of experience! Check out the other diners Pete has started on... More

High-quality diner fare made with a high degree of expertise and passion. My BLT exceeded my expectations: just the right amount of well-done bacon, tasty tomato, copious lettuce and toasted wheat bread made by Pete's staff and worthy of kings. The veg beef and rice soup also excelled. Desserts looked fabulous. I have never seen a lemon meringue pie with... More

We frequent this Greek-American restaurant twice a year and it's not too bad. It is usually hustling and bustling, which i take as a good sign. Staff is usually very attentive and nice. Prices are very reasonable (our bill for 2 people is never over $20 total with tip). Ample parking. Place is decently clean (very important to me) Food... More
