Pete’s Breakfast House is a quaint little cafe conveniently located off Ventura’s historic Main St. Get there early or make a reservation, otherwise be prepared to wait for this gem. The food is outstanding, service is excellent and the employees are kind and upbeat.

All the items are really good, but for me it is about the pancakes! Yum! Biscuits and homemade jelly are very tasty as well. Can't go wrong going here.

I'm not sure, looks like first come first served. I'd call and check--especially for a larger group they would probably take a reservation. Very customer service oriented.
