Breakfast was amazing! Everything was deliciously fresh. Coffee was perfect strength. Service was attentive and friendly. The atmosphere is cozy and although it can be a bit loud, this kinda adds to the ambience. Definitely recommend!

My daughter and I enjoyed Pete's. Great wait staff and food is A-1. Laura had the mainstream special and I had Mexicali Both were outstanding. Worth a visit. Be prepared to wait a few minutes. It's busy.
