Don't listen to the bad reviews. This place is exactly what it looks like in terms of service and decor, but the food is really good. There are TONS of really bad diners in Philly. Little Pete's isn't one of them. The food is good and it's made quickly. The service isn't great and the decor isn't great, but it's a 24/7 diner what do you expect? Sandwiches are good, breakfast food is really good (scrapple is great, omelettes are gread), I've never had any of the "dinner" items or burgers. Bottom line : at 3am looking for a place to eat near Rittenhouse Square, it's the best 12 bucks you can spend. If you want service go spend 5x the money somewhere else and stop complaining.

Love the beef burger

Granted, the only reason to go here is for an after-party snack at 3 a.m., but not even vodka-numbed tastebuds can ignore just how poor the food is here. Cardboard for hamburgers served up by tired waitstaff (there's a difference between a playful bad attitude and thinly-veiled hostility). I gave the place a second-chance for a daylight breakfast, only to be served a dried-out omelette with no flavor. Depressing food in a sad old place.

It was an awesome place in my book. Has a distinct diner feel to it. Quirky staff and good food at 5 a.m was great.

I went to Little Pete's a few weeks ago for the first time; the food was good for the price. The waitress was alright, I've had better...The place is certainly worth going back to.

This cafe was recommended by the concierge at our hotel for breakfast. It was one of the highlights of our visit to Philly. The food was great and we really liked the old style diner vibe. If you expect to be fawned over by the wait staff you will be disappointed. Crusty gals with withering gazes. Part of the charm in my book!

Food tasted great and there was a ton of it for the price. Super friendly service, especially after my son spilled an entire glass of chocolate milk all over the floor (and himself). Only negative...they only accept cash and I didn't know that until it was time to pay. Thank god I had just enough cash on me. We owe a massive tip next time we're there!
