Management at Pete's is on top of the world. Owner makes sure her clients are very well taken care of, giving them no choice but to come back. Very People orientated. Food and service is excellent. My place for every day breakfast, lunch occassionally. Once you've tried Pete's, you will be back...

This diner, run by two indefatigable Oriental women, is a keeper. It possesses the virtues of being cheap, reliable, fast, palatable, and friendly. Let’s have a look-see at my breakfast this morning. Pete’s is at 212 2nd Street, SE. Contrary to reports, it isn’t tiny, but comfortable. It opens at 5 AM daily, closes at 3 PM. No tourists, few of those insufferable Hill interns and staffers who are incessantly on cell phones and/or giggling amongst themselves. There’s outside seating too, which I elected for. I went in, placed my order, and went outside. My orange juice – a big tumbler with bits of pulp – followed me out courtesy of one of the ladies. In less than three minutes the rest came appeared. Two sausage patties (too salty so I won’t order them again). Home fries that had a creamy inside and a crusty outside, and two eggs over-easy that were diner perfection. Finally, white toast. What made this remarkable was the slices came warm and buttered, unlike most places that now serve you cold toast with some wrapped packets of frozen butter. This was punctuated by the lady popping out repeatedly asking if there was anything I needed. Price? $8.20 including tax. Then there were the specials (six of them) lined up, ranging from beef lasagna to vegetarian sushi, all at $6.95, and which change daily. And the regular menu burgers and fries and all sorts of pies has a good [select]ion of Asian/vegetarian dishes. All of this was not only tasty, but filling. And sitting outside with the dawn cracking, I didn’t mind the light sprizter of rain that appeared briefly. That sushi beckons, if not today, next week.

Good breakfast diner food in a relaxed atmosphere. Also, the prices are more than reasonable.

Tried this place because Le Bon Cafe was closed, and the food was quite bad. The servings were small although prices seemed at first to be reasonable. Sauce was cold and food did not taste freshly made. Soup serving in particular was extremely insufficient. Good only if you're in the Capitol area and want cheap eats.

If you are in a hurry this is not the place to go, but if you have time and don't mind the crowd on the weekend it's a fun/cheap place to go.
