Over the years, Pete’s Kitchen on Colfax has gone from being a local secret to a Denver landmark. Despite the growth in business, Pete’s food still lives up to its sky high reputation, though the service could sometimes use improvement.
Pete’s is part diner, part theme restaurant. The main room has diner-style booths and a counter where you can sit and watch your food being cooked.The walls are loaded up with old photos, awards, and other kitsch.
Best known as a late night or breakfast eatery, Pete’s is often packed at 2:30 in the morning or during the weekend breakfast rush. The service may seem somewhat slow, or even a little indifferent during certain times of the day, especially if you’re used to the much higher level of attentiveness of waitstaff at fine dinning restaurants.
