Pete’s Was Packed!

 

Up early on Saturday morning. ( Not bad for old people who stayed up late for First Friday.) 

So, we headed to Pete’s Coffee Shop-Restaurant at 540 Union Avenue. Maybe you’ve heard of the Small Plate movement in restaurants where weight-conscious people (ladies, mostly) order tiny salads and half plates of food.  Nothing like that at Pete’s!  It’s bountiful food!

Pete’s was packed, and, after checking out what other people were eating, we ordered the Breakfast Special!

Our server was none other than Sheree who is nominated for Best Server in the MetroPulse poll! She’s worked at Pete’s for 33 years! (Well, first she was at Line’s which Pete bought 25 years ago.)  With a smile on her face, she plopped down those strawberry pancakes and just-right, over-easy eggs!

Also having a big breakfast were Rhea and Ron Sherrill and their son Nolan, who had just arrived from Washington, D. C., via the Megabus — a ride that he said was “OK” and definitely affordable!

Wanna  check out Pete’s at lunch instead of breakfast?  Bert loves the homemade chicken salad sandwich with mayo, lettuce and tomato or Sami’s Sub Club: sliced lean roast beef and turkey breast — grilled hot — with two kinds of cheese and bacon on a toasted hoagie roll!

Pete’s has Daily Specials, too, like meatloaf, roast beef and gravy, and chicken livers with a your choice of country vegetables like turnip greens, real mashed potatoes, pinto beans, and apple fritters.

Pete’s Coffee Shop – Restaurant is open 6:30-2:30 Monday through Friday and 7:00 to 2:00 on Saturdays.

    Not sure what you mean by “up early”… but we had breakfast at Pete’s Saturday morning, too! It’s one of our favorite stops. I think we were there around 10. Love that place!

  2. Pete’s has been one of my favorite places since I first worked downtown in the mid-90s. Unfortunately, I don’t get there as often as I would like these days …but yum!!! Their chicken livers are THE best in town!
