Little Pete's is most popular for their big all day breakfast menu. They offer more than a dozen unique omelet creations. Be sure to look into the breakfast special which includes coffee or juice - priced at under 15 bucks. It's a great filling dish which will take you through the morning hours, so you can get on to the various museums and attractions without stopping for food.
While not the best choice for the health conscious, they do offer a number of filling salads. The Greek salad is a nice choice. Also, the spinach pie we tested was decent enough, although it was a bit cold like it had been sitting around too long. Other "healthier" fare includes various turkey & chicken hoagies and burgers/sandwiches.
Service was not overly friendly, yet still attentive. The place was packed and bustling with people on a weekend morning, and the food still did not take very long.
Little Pete's definitely has that local vibe and homestyle diner ambiance. The noise level is pretty high due to the popularity. The tables could be spaced apart a bit more, however, the ambiance is attractively relaxed. Therefore, this is a great place to check out before walking around the city as there is no need to dress up or worry about reservations.
Little Pete's is one of the only options for breakfast before visiting any nearby attractions like the Philadelphia Museum of Art. While they do not offer the highest quality food in town, the diverse & affordable menu should please everyone in your party.
