First time visit yesterday on the way to dropping our son off to college @ Westmont. I had the corned beef hash, the best I have EVER had. My wife had the pancake roll with tons of fresh fruit. WE WILL BE BACK. Service was fast and beyond friendly, price worth every bite

Pete's Breakfast House If you are in Ventura Ca. make sure to stop by Pete's Breakfest House. The food is good and of the home-cookin' variety. The menu was good sized, worth lots of choices, breakfast, burgers, salads, sandwiches. We sat inside as the wait was less, they also have a patio area with umbrellas, but we took the first... More

Sitting outside let's you take in main street and the people waiting in the queue. Don't miss their corned beef hash. Made on site from whole corned... More

Befitting the character of the city, Pete's is a Ventura institution. The bad: it's small and a bit noisy with long waits on weekends. The good: consistently great food in a small town breakfast/lunch cafe. There is a board with daily specials and it's all good! The staff and owners are all great with some of the servers having worked... More

This is a gripe! I tried to sell organic local blackberries that I grew to them, they opted for Mexican grown berries. There eggs are standard fair, pale yokes and not much flavor, which is what I find all the cafes in Ventura. The local farmers market egg provider tells me only one cafe buy from him, and that is...

A good breakfast with many choices and large portion sizes. Decor is basic diner which could use a refreshing but the staff is kind, helpful and efficient. Food was very good.

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!

Thank Joy L
