The Story of Pete’s Breakfast House

Back in the Early 80’s a young entrepreneur & food wizard, Peter Ransom, took over “2055 Main Street” a small café, with the intent to serve freshly prepared incredible breakfast dishes.  It took time, but slowly Venturians began to flock to savor these delights.

In 2003 Peter & Lyndsay Timpson (2 transplanted Brits) happened upon “Pete’s Breakfast House” they had to buy it – Pete’s name was on the door!  Forever after Peter Timpson became known as Re-Pete. 

In the changeover Peter Ransom was adamant that the menu & recipes stayed and no member of staff was displaced in the changeover so we have:
- Gilby- the #1 Chef  -has prepared meals at Pete’s since 1988:
- Lori Hipskind – the Manager - came to Pete’s in 1989; 
- Joannie, Lori Z, Jose & Raul have all served at Pete’s for over 12 years. 

In 2011 Guy Fieri discovered & featured Pete’s on ‘Diners, Drive In’s & Dives”
