My family stopped at Peter's on the way to Ottawa for lunch. We really enjoyed the small hometown atmosphere and the food was excellent. They also have baked goods including home made pies. The lemon meringue and apple were phenomenal. I ordered the raspberry and found the dough to be more cakey than flakey and the filling was delicious but... More

I gave a review of Peter's Restaurant and Bakery 4 years ago and I feel I need to update my review from a 3 out of 5 to a 5 out of 5. There's a new owner (2 years now), Chelsea, and she has brought back the old 'Cheers where everyone knows your name' vibe that was missing in years... More

My husband ordered a hot hamburger sandwich. Could not cut the meat - very tough and dry. Fries were cold under a pile of congealed brown gravy. I ordered a cheeseburger which was burnt on the bottom and dry. Not a pleasant experience. When the waitress asked us how things were we told her and she said she would reduce... More

This place has been around for a long time and recently changed ownership back to what it was. I am by no means a regular but my mother (a senior and local) is. She had stopped going here because of the previous owners but every time I am in town now, this is the place we end up...again. The staff... More

Peter’s is a traditional family style, neighbourhood restaurant. Home-made desserts, locally produced, fresh ingredients make the food tasty. Breakfasts, lunch or dinner, it’s good food and excellent service.

Parked on a side street as it was a Friday night. Typical diner seating, with great poutine, and good liver with mashed potatoes. The pies are homemade. The butterscotch cream was surprisingly good; i'd never heard of it - so was the coconut cream pie. Also had other meringue pies, fruit pies, butter tarts, and cheesecake. It is attached to... More

We went to breakfast on a Sunday morning. Wait time was about 15 mins for 6 people. There didn't seem to be any tables for more than four people so we ended up at two booths across from each other. Waitress was absent minded....forgetting items and mixing up who got what. Had to ask repeatedly for coffee refills. The bacon... More

Nothing extraordinary about this place. It is average but a good average. You will have a good meal there at a reasonable price.
