Pete's Cafe opened in 1984, and it is beloved to the Belmont and Fordham community. Its owner, Pete Nikolopoulos, passed away in February, and the whole community remembers him for his contributions to the vitality of the area life... and his wonderful food! You'll find a Greek-American spin on many of the items on Pete's Cafe's menu, and apparently students get a 10% discount!
I should also mention here that I never used to like breakfast food until I ate breakfast at Pete's. I HATE eggs (still do) but for some reason, the omelettes are just so good that you have to love them! I dream about Pete's sometimes... and no, I'm not exaggerating.
So, you want to see what our breakfast was like? Come along on a photo journey!
Look at that bite of omelette there! It has a ton of broccoli in it (sometimes I get mushroom, instead!) and a full layer of cheddar cheese in the middle. Needless to say by the picture, I love ketchup on my omelette too. It goes way beyond your average omelette, and I need to learn how to make them for myself because I can't wait all summer to have one!
I know I don't have to tell most of you twice (or even once!) but grab a bite at Pete's sometime soon. It's located at 570 E. Fordham Road in the Bronx, and it's majorly worth it!
While I was on a sandwich kick with my Arthur Ave Grilled Cheese, I made up another one, too... tune in for part one tomorrow!
