This little place in Greenwood is a real jewel. Pete and his family seem to know every customer of their amazing breakfast restaurant and that is because they keep coming back for more. Great service, always friendly and fast. They usually have a line outside and Pete will frequently bring orange juice for the people waiting in line. The dining room is not very fancy but it is always packed. If you eat there you'll see why... Seattle has to offer many good breakfast restaurants but this is hands down the very best. Outstanding in every aspect. Egg lovers rejoyce!!!

Pros: Eggs benedict poetry

Cons: I challenge you to find any

I stumbled upon the Greenwood staple, Pete's Egg Nest a couple years ago. I figured they must be doing something right if there is always a line out the door on the weekends. And, I was right.

There are probably 20 different scrambles/omelets to choose from (my favorite: Athenian Greek Scramble with pita bread), basic pancake, french toast and breakfast specials and if you feel like lunch - turn the menu over and enjoy one of their sandwiches, salads, soups or burgers.

I find myself craving Pete's every Tuesday for lunch. It's a great spot to reflect on projects for the rest of the week, and to wind down after a crazy morning.

This quaint, family-owned and extremely family-friendly restaurant will leave your tummy full and your mouth smiling.

My wife and I found this quiet little restaurant while enrolling our daughter into Greenwood Elementary in 2008. We came from Las Vegas and were very surprised when we noticed that this hole in the wall was a restaurant that was some of the best breakfast we had had since leaving the overcrowded Vegas breakfast life. It was small and friendly. Voula welcomed us with a smile and delivered on what she offered to be the breakfast in the area. Thanks for all you have done. we continue to frequent this breakfast nook just to see the friendly staff and enjoy great comfort although we have moved almost an hour away.

Pete's is an okay breakfast spot. They have some interesting omelette selections, but the restaurant itself leaves a lot to be desired in terms of atmosphere. They can accommodate big groups.

After reading reviews, I decided to try Pete's Egg Nest. In the Greenwood area down the street from Wing Dome, lies this small diner with about 11-12 tables. Closing at 3pm on Sundays, I dropped by at 2 to get past the rush and after church business to have a nice breakfast.
There is quite a variety of breakfast choices on the menu as well as lunchtime fare. Prices are reasonable and from what I see, portions are generous.
A well worn photocopied specials page attached to the menu and I tried their pork scrambler. A play on biscuits and gravy, this was served with homemade cornmeal biscuits which then had scrambled eggs mixed with mushrooms, cheese and thin strips of pork. Gravy topped this and was accompanied by hash browns.
What was nice was that the gravy was a nice amount, without flooding the entire plate. There was just the right amount to have some with each bite of egg and biscuit. The hash browns were done well and not greasy.
What was disappointing was lack of seasoning. Ham can be very salty and can impart saltiness, this was not the pork used in this dish. Gravy desperately needed salt and pepper. Eggs and mushrooms needed seasoning. The hash browns could have used some seasoning as well. I'm not a salt and pepper hound. In fact, I refrain from touching those on the table because I want to taste what the cook wants me to taste, which in this case, was decent, but lacked depth. While I understand consideration for those on low salt diets, consider what basic cooking books and schools teach... Properly season each component and then adjust the entire dish, if needed.
I'll probably come back to try again, because it was NOT bad food. Parking was on street and can be a little tough. Service was friendly, but was never offered any refills on my coffee or water. Considering diner waitresses are stereotyped as having a coffee carafe glued to the hand, I was not impressed there, especially because they were not busy.

We used to live just around the corner and ate at Pete's every weekend. The large portions made for two or more meals and we actually ate the leftovers, rare for us. I love the special french toast like banana walnut. My boyfriend loves the meat and cheese scramble, which is crazy because he ordinarily doesn't like eggs. But what really got me hooked was when they asked me how I wanted my bacon cooked. I love extra crispy bacon but my boyfriend likes limp bacon so it was great to find a restaurant that understands and makes this accommodation. And the bacon is thick cut so even when crispy it's flavorful. Mmmm, bacon.

Since living in Seattle we've moved to Anchorage and Denver and we're always looking for a breakfast place that compares with Pete's--we haven't found it yet.

I am prompted to write this on behalf of a friend who was rudely treated at Pete's Egg Nest. While she was having lunch there in early December, a couple sat down at an adjoining table, and one of them proceeded to carry on a lengthly and loud cell phone conversation. My friend waited for a break in the conversation, leaned over, and quietly asked to please lower her voice. She asked this politely and discreetly. The woman shrugged and went on, however agreeably at a lower volume. There were no other exchanges between the tables. However, when my friend paid her bill and was ready to leave, she was confronted by a man identifying himself as the "owner" of the restaurant, loudly asking if there were a problem, and why she had bothered another customer. My friend was taken aback but replied that the cell phone conversation had been too loud and too long, and that she had simply asked if the used could please keep her voice down. The "owner" shouted that it was a FAMILY restaurant, and that cell phones were not a problem, and that she should "get out and DON'T COME BACK"!!
This was conducted in front of other customers. My friend (an older woman) was embarrassed and will not return. This is inexcusable, especially for a "family" restaurant in a cozy neighborhood.

Pete's is the greatest. Best food, largest menu, biggest plates and the most friendly staff. Their specials are unbelievable. If you have not been here you have to go. This is THE place I always bring anyone from out of town.

Pros: everythin! I can't say one bad thing

Cons: nothing

Hands down, Pete's is the best breakfast spot in Seattle! I've dined at a mojority of the recommended eateries in the city and Pete's take the cake. The service is fantastic, and unlike one of the previous reviews, I found that they are very accomodating to customers. Once (out of the DOZENS of times I've dined there) they forgot to add sausage to my omelette. When I politely informed them, they not only fixed it right away, but gave me the other one on the house to take home for leftovers.

Their menu is fabulous and they will remember you when you come in for a 2nd time. Great family!!!

Pros: food, price, service

Pete's Egg Nest may seem at first to have a fairly standard menu. Look again... Their specials are unbelievable and cooked with such care and concern for flavor. I love the family-run aspect of this restaurant, which itself is quite unassuming in appearance. Service here is great for how busy it is and the staff are always friendly and provide a sense of energy.

I can't emphasize enough how delicious the food is. The Athenian Greek Scramble is a party for my taste-buds.

One thing I can't say about Pete's Egg Nest is that the eggs are good. Which is unfortunate considering that's part of their name. The scrambles are packed with way too many ingredients to be able to actually taste anything. And to top it off the eggs I got weren't even all the way cooked. The coffee was bad, the toast was cold. The only thing I can say about this place is that it's conveniently located and the wait staff seems pretty nice. But then again, this is Seattle, land of nice waiters.

That last reviewer must have been having a bad day. I eat there all the time and have NEVER had anything but a great experience. Sure they are always busy so they may not have time to chit chat, but the food is fast and always good and the portions are huge. You will not leave hungry. Personally, I like to support small family run businesses as there are not that many left.

than eat at Pete's Egg Nest, where the rude, slow service and the horrible food made me leave hungry. The waitress was unapologetic when my "omelette" (you could hardly call it that) came back to me incorrectly made for the THIRD time. I was still charged for the food, and had to argue with a manager to get it removed. I will never go back to Pete's Egg Nest. It was one of the worst dining experiences I have ever had.

One of my favorite neighborhood breakfast places! The service is usually prompt, and the food is always good. The portions are large, and the bill will be cheap. Many local residents are "regulars" here, and if you are from the neighborhood, you will likely see someone you know.

This is my favorite cheap breakfast place in town. I'm not usually a big fan of hash browns, but you should try them here -- they're very good.
