If you're looking for a good meal with good service and a great price this little diner is perfect. The breakfast we had today was huge and tasty with great coffee. Couldn't ask for more!

Oh my ! Peter D's is just the cutest little place! If you want to have a meal in a typical american diner from the 50s, this is your place. Its just like we see in the movies. We "accidently" found it on our way to the Fishermans Wharf and decided to have our breakfast here. We will never regret... More

The service is a little slow at times. The food is mediocre but it was competitively priced so it makes it an OK option

Darkened works hard to facilitate and please everyone. She is good with the constant local customers and us tourists too. We were a large party of 6 and she made us very welcome, even tho she was often busy. The menu is varied and suits most. We all enjoyed all of it and went back for seconds

We had Mother's Day breakfast here this morning before we checked out of Inn on Broadway and we were so impressed with the yummy fresh food and excellent service - truly the best since we arrived in the US a month ago. We fly home to Australia tonight so talk about saving the best til last?! Thank you ladies for... More

We had one of our first breakfasts in the States at this diner. We weren't disappointed. The portions were big, the lady who served us was very friendly, the prices however were a bit expensive.

My wife and I enjoy the foodie places of Northern California, but we really enjoyed a nice break from that scene with a breakfast at Peter D's. Excellent food at a good price, and no long lines out the door of people craving artisan cheeses. And my dish -- a special that day, smoked salmon scramble -- was excellent. Good... More

Our family of 4 ate here thinking the menu looked great and prices were reasonable. We were WRONG! Portion sizes were extremely small. Extra charges for things like eating after 11am, adding chocolate chips to pancakes, using a credit card, etc. Ended up costing more than $65 for very average food.
