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

This is my 2nd time visiting. The cafe is on a Main Street 1 mile from airport. There are a few hotels on this road walking distance !

I ate here the morning after staying at The Dylan (wonderful boutique hotel) and had their special. The bacon was thick and crispy, the eggs and hash browns served hot. It was a simple breakfast but done right and served with a smile. Looks like locals come here as the server knew several guests by name. Typical diner atmosphere. I... More

Sit at the counter, have coffee, eggs easy over, with hash browns, sussages and toast at 7pm - talk to the guy next to you in very short sentenses - and have good no fuss service in a quite large restaurand/diner - not sure I'll call it a cafe though.

We had a late dinner here after flying into San Francisco. Service is good, meals plentiful and what you would expect in a diner.

This has become a family tradition. When we visit relatives in Millbrae, we always include a couple trips to Peter's Cafe for breakfast. Food is great, prices are reasonable and the staff is excellent.

I enjoyed my grilled chicken and fries. It was made fresh. Big portions so I took half to the near by hotel The Dylan where I stayed.

Peter's Cafe has an old school diner feel, and it serves a variety of items that are the usual comfort foods. We usually stop there for breakfast on the way to the nearby BART station. Portions are good, servers are friendly. Decent food, not gourmet, but standard diner fare. Most of the customers appear to be locals/regulars. Good for a... More

I've al3ways liked Peter's Cafe. SUre, it may be a little dated looking, but to me, that just ads to the charm. I usually get the Utimate cheeseburger Anyway, I went in late one night. I was eating and I noticed the cashier was closing her drawer. Not wanting to hold her up, I stopped eating to go pay. She... More

Peter's Cafe appears to have been around a long time, at least that is what its appearance suggests. While a little run down that does little but enhance the kind of old school diner feel I get when I go in here. The service has always been good and I have never been served anything I didn't like. It's not... More
