If you want to go somewhere after 2am in the morning to eat then "Little Pete's" is the best place to go. "Little Pete's is located in a the safe part of Center City right next to the Warrick hotel.

And "Little Pete's has a very long menu to select from for such a small little dinky restaurant- I love the place been going for years.

One of the few diners within the center city area that's open all night and serves just what you need after a night at a show or the bar. It's a diner so it's pretty much all a huge menu of comfort food. It's a bit pricey for being a diner. Great place for people watching on the late night!

A great breakfast place if you're looking for a lot of food at a reasonable price. Their cheese omelets and hash browns will fill your belly! Quick service in a diner atmosphere.

This is a great place to come for that. Whether you came out of Mcglinchey's or Ruge, this place serves very well for the after hour hunger.

The price is good and I sort of like atmosphere.

I had high hopes for Little Pete's. I love diners. I don't expect fine-dining, just a nice big, greasy burger or pile of scrambled eggs. The reviews were favorable, so my boyfriend and I went in for a late-night meal. What can I say...it was probably my WORST restaurant experience ever. I ordered strawberry shortcake, and I noticed within a few bites that all of the strawberries were covered in white MOLD. I informed the waitress, she whisked away the plate and handed us the check. No apology from her or the owner. They still charged my boyfriend for his meal, which, while not violating health codes, was pretty gross (hashbrowns = soggy potato mush). In addition to the moldy food that made me sick, the service was extremely slow, and the food was not cheap (midtown is about $2 cheaper for every meal). Little Pete's = don't go!

My mom and I went to Little Pete's for a weekend breakfast recently - It was awesome. I'm from a small southern Indiana town, and the overweight bleach blonde waitress who referred to her customers as "hun" was a little bit of home for me! :) What people out here call "comfort food" is normal food to me and that's Little Pete's. You won't find healthy exciting or inventive dishes on the menu, but you'll find plently of GOOD eats and isn't that what it's all about after all??

Pros: down home

Cons: some diners don't get it. not good for uptight gop types

.

Dirty, gross, disgusting. Though, I guess it would be great if I were wasted. The food is sub-par, but not unlike most other 24 hour establishments. It also strikes me as really, really dirty. Vagrants wander in and out, the floor has a perpetual layer of grime & dirt, thank god you can't see the kitchen.

i've had so-so experiences eating at this establishment several times in the past, however the last time i ate there, i vowed never to return. me and my boyfriend sat down at the counter to order some food; it was late friday night, so it was pretty crowded. i sat next to a man who was just finishing up his food, as ours arrived. as i began to eat, the man next to me decided that he needed to nap after his meal and was slowing falling asleep. the manager/owner, i'm not sure which, came over several times to tell the guy to go home and sleep it off (the drunken stupor i imagine). just as we were finishing our late night breakfast, the drowsy man next to me woke up, reached across MY plate, took MY toast, and started munching on it! WOAH, i'm all for sharing, but this is just too much. we immediately get the check from the waitress, at that point i was FINISHED! the owner/manager who had told him several times to pack it up and go on home informed us that he was a regular and that he was sorry. i guess this establishment values it's regulars more than it's casual late night diners.

I have not been in here since, but I wonder how smoking ban affects the "ambience".
The food is good, and they definitely cater to regulars better than the casual customer.
My suggestion though, if possible is to go to the other Little Petes in the Philadelphian at 24th and Fairmount.
It is bigger, and the overall service is much better - but the Food quality remains the same.

Pros: Food, people watching

Cons: used to be smokey (but ban may have changed that), do not always treat non"regulars" well

I ordered a simple grilled swiss on rye. The waitress was surly - as she walked past us, she said "hi." My husband replied, "hello." The waitress snarled, "I wasn't talking to you." The grilled cheese arrived - cold, greasy, and the swiss cheese was like a giant brick of rubber. There are a lot of other diners in Philly where the food is much better and cheaper. Don't recommend at all.

Whoever gave this an overall 9 got to be out of his/her mind!!! The moment you walk into this place, you cannot avoid the stench! It smells more like a smoky bar than a restaurant. The place is outdated and dirty. No one greeted us. No one told us to have a seat. The waitress there could use an attitude adjustment. No good morning. No hello. No "what can I get for you?" We didn't even bother with the food since the place and the people were the last thing I want to see in the morning.

The food here is terrible. My french toast was soggy. My boyfriend's reuben was fatty and unappetizing. I do not recommend this place at all. With so many great places in philly, why go here.

I've dined at Little Pete's for breakfast, lunch, and dinner during a vacation in Philly. I would reccomend it to anyone, anytime. Friendly, prompt service and delicious meals. FYI: In the short week I was in Philly, I spotted two celebraties at the diner (Paris Hilton and the Met's Shane Spencer).

Service is speedy and efficient, breakfast is spectacular, and atmosphere is great for people watching but not for taking Mom out for Mother's Day brunch. If you want elegance or are claustrophobic, keep walking. If you want good food and a true Philly experience, be sure to stop in.
