Classic breakfast spot. No frills. Great breakfast. Awesome service. I loved it. I went for the Pete's Skillet w/ gravy. Made to order on the eggs – on point. The gravy is great too. There were so many other things that looked great on the menu. Fun spot to stop into.

We looked at the reviews given that we wanted to eat breakfast out on our way to shop. It is not a very big place and should be because this place is so popular and for good reason! We ordered, as a family the huevous rancherous, chili rellenous, and the breakfast gyros. All were terrific! I asked for my eggs... More

A selection of American breakfast classics (they also have some Greek options gyros and such). The dishes were hearty and the portions reasonable. We liked all that we got. The staff was friendly and the service quick. It looks to be popular with locals. If you want sit-down breakfast that is cafe and not fast food this is a great... More

Nothing fancy and seating and parking are limited but worth the visit as they have all the standards but have daily specials that are tasty and unique Lisa's Place up the road is smaller but they both have the same feel of long-time locals who frequent both and has a 'Cheer's breakfast' feel with friendly service for everyone.

Not far away you can walk in 5 minutes. The best breakfast food in Thornton and a large lunch and dinner menu for a great price with food left to take home.

We had driven by this place a thousand times, when we finally stopped in. Owned by Pete of famed Pete's steakhouse on Colfax. If you have been doing something for a long time you should probably be good at it, and I imagine Pete has been good at this for a long time. Even though we had never been when... More

Pete's Cafe is one of those joints that a friend told a friend who told you about it. We stopped in for breakfast a couple of Sundays ago. There isn't anything special at Pete's except great food and lightning service. We were surprised at what came out of Pete's modest kitchen! Breakfast and lunch only... Yum! We'll be back!
