Went to Pete’s and had some amazing breakfast. My server was really good, I needed something to satisfy my sweet tooth. Instead of ordering pancakes, she suggested that I get the biscuit and I must say this was one of the best biscuits that I...More

I ate outside, which was nice. I had the chille verde huevos. Which is pork sausage chille verde, eggs and cheese on corn tortillas. It also comes with home fries and refried beans. The biscuits are amazing!! And their homemade strawberry jam was perfect.

Not only does this restaurant open very early, the service has always been great. I usually eat breakfast here and I have never had a bad experience. Staff is always cheerful and helpful.

We found this place and picked it thanks to some reviews. It isn't a huge place, so we did have to wait awhile to be seated. Once we got our food, we understood what the wait was for! We really enjoyed this place.

Pete's is one of my favorite restaurants in town. The line to get in is always long, especially on weekends. But SO worth it! The pancake roll with yogurt and berries is to die for, in my opinion. Big portions, great prices, excellent service.

Granted, it's hard to mess up eggs but for a good breakfast place you need GOOD ATTITUDE. These folks have it down pat. Great wait staff, greeter, cashier, bussing troops, everybody is friendly, helpful, and just plain nice. The food is great, coffee is nothing...More

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.
