Love, Love, Love this place! Food is excellent, friendly staff, and food comes out quickly. The location attracts lots of locals. Weekends expect to wait for a table, but in my opinion it's worth the wait.

Pete’s Breakfast House is a quaint little cafe conveniently located off Ventura’s historic Main St. Get there early or make a reservation, otherwise be prepared to wait for this gem. The food is outstanding, service is excellent and the employees are kind and upbeat.

The food is consistently good but the wait is long. If you choose to go elsewhere because of that, don't go next door!

My wife and I had a really lovely breakfast at this place while en route to Monterey from Anaheim. The food was plentiful and freshly cooked. Our server was such a sweety, she was so kind and attentive. The place got very busy around 9am,...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.
