I recently moved to Ventura and found this place, it is unbelievably delicious and the vibe here is wonderful. I love Pete's Chili, have to have it every time I visit, which is every weekend. Pete is always there and such a personable man, he is somewhat of a superstar in that when he travels people all over the world know him! Its that good. His Omelets are to-die-for and the freshly made Biscuits are so good, I never liked them until I found this place. Even the Strawberry jam is delicious because its made fresh in their kitchen. Its always crowded here, except early in the weekday mornings and even then its filled with people. We usually go between 12:30 and 1:30, they close at 2 pm promptly, then the wait is never more than a few minutes and once we got seated immediately! ;) The food is so good here that nobody minds waiting, and there is plenty of places to sit and fresh coffee to drink while you wait. Don't miss this place.
