It had been a few years since we had been to Pete's since we don't live in the area. We were hoping the quality and friendly service was still as we had remembered and we were not disappointed. Lucky for us the pumpkin pancakes were a special of the day and they were delicious.

Big menu w/a variety of egg, pancake, mexican-influenced dishes. Incredibly attentive and friendly service, and worth waiting if necessary. Not a huge place, has both indoor and a bit of outdoor seating. Small parking lot, and easy to miss if you are looking for a sign saying "Pete's". I'm going back!

The food is well worth the wait. The portions are large enough to split. We sat on the patio and had excellent service. The fresh strawberry jam was out of this world.

The locals flock to Pete's. It never disappoints. Great food and service. You may have a bit of a wait at peak hours, but that just verifies its popularity in a city with lots of options for breakfast.

This is one of those places you just have to try if you are in the area. The breakfast was amazing! I wish I lived closer so I could go all the time.

Pete's is a staple on Main Street, in Ventura. Weekends are busy here so make sure to plan for that, but the wait is very much worth it. The service is always great and fast, and the food always tastes good. Even if you are on you own, they have a bar top service which adds to the ambiance.

When you walk into Pete's you can immediately sense that it is a local favorite. The atmosphere is that of a comfortable diner. It is clean and the staff friendly. Of the patrons, there was a mix of families, business groups, couples and singles. Upon being seated the coffee came quickly with the menu already being placed on the table.... More

Pete's is a great place for a hearty, traditional breakfast. The service is brisk and the portions are generous. Take special note of the operating hours. There is often a line-up so bring something to amuse yourself because you may have a 5 to 10 minute wait for a table.

I did my research on good or different breakfast options for my time in the Ventura area while driving the PCH and the Pancake roll definitely stood out to me and lived up to my expectations. The fresh fruit with the granola and yogurt make so a great combination.

I love stopping here when we travel. If I had not seen this on Diners, drive ins and Dives I never would have know about this hidden gem. The breakfasts are really good and filling. Small place but so awesome. The people are super friendly and I enjoy eating here. Great food and large portions. You will love it. You... More
