We decided to try out Peter’s because it was just down the street from the Dylan Hotel in Milbrae, where my brother and I stayed recently while attending a convention in San Francisco. Peter’s Café is a take on the old retro diner style, with rotating stools and booths in teal-colored vinyl and chrome. The menu reflects this – with... More

I stopped in for a late lunch with a couple of friends and we were very happy with our meals and service. I had one of the best Monte Christo's I ever had and my friends enjoyed their meals as well. I will agree with some other reviews that the restaurant is in need of a renovation because the location,... More

Good food. Needs a cleaning and a remodeled. Bit outdated. Next to Caltrain and Bart station. Very convenient to the Dylan hotel.

Stopped here for breakfast after a quick night stay in San Francisco. Great food good service. The diner is a little dated but I'd kind of expect that for a diner. Seems to be very popular with locals. One warning is there were signs on the doors to lock car and hide valuables it seems car break-ins could be a... More

I ate here the morning after staying at The Dylan (wonderful boutique hotel) and had their special. The bacon was thick and crispy, the eggs and hash browns served hot. It was a simple breakfast but done right and served with a smile. Looks like locals come here as the server knew several guests by name. Typical diner atmosphere. I... More

Sit at the counter, have coffee, eggs easy over, with hash browns, sussages and toast at 7pm - talk to the guy next to you in very short sentenses - and have good no fuss service in a quite large restaurand/diner - not sure I'll call it a cafe though.

We had a late dinner here after flying into San Francisco. Service is good, meals plentiful and what you would expect in a diner.

This has become a family tradition. When we visit relatives in Millbrae, we always include a couple trips to Peter's Cafe for breakfast. Food is great, prices are reasonable and the staff is excellent.

I enjoyed my grilled chicken and fries. It was made fresh. Big portions so I took half to the near by hotel The Dylan where I stayed.
