We read all the great views on Peter's Cafe on Trip Advisor so we decided to check it out last night for dinner. The diner was mostly empty. This was 5:15 p.m. After a few moments a waitress came over, never said one word of a greeting, picked two menus, threw them on a booth then left to continue to... More

Just because a business has been around a long time, does not mean it will continue to strive for excellence. Such is with Peter's. Once a great, local place to eat, now no more. We waited 6 minutes to be seated while staff fluttered around from one thing to another. Had to flag down the waitress to place our order... More

Stumbled update n this little cafe before my flight. The waitress was great and the food even better. Decent prices and we were served promptly.

I stopped here to grab a bite to eat while spending the night at a nearby hotel. I was pleasantly surprised with the food quality and the ambience of the diner. I will stop here again if I have another overnight layover at SFO.

We decided to try out Peter’s because it was just down the street from the Dylan Hotel in Milbrae, where my brother and I stayed recently while attending a convention in San Francisco. Peter’s Café is a take on the old retro diner style, with rotating stools and booths in teal-colored vinyl and chrome. The menu reflects this – with... More

I stopped in for a late lunch with a couple of friends and we were very happy with our meals and service. I had one of the best Monte Christo's I ever had and my friends enjoyed their meals as well. I will agree with some other reviews that the restaurant is in need of a renovation because the location,... More

Good food. Needs a cleaning and a remodeled. Bit outdated. Next to Caltrain and Bart station. Very convenient to the Dylan hotel.

Stopped here for breakfast after a quick night stay in San Francisco. Great food good service. The diner is a little dated but I'd kind of expect that for a diner. Seems to be very popular with locals. One warning is there were signs on the doors to lock car and hide valuables it seems car break-ins could be a... More
