Peet's Coffed is a national treasure! Yes, Starbucks may be better known. So much for that! Peet's has ambience, character and fantastic coffee. This particular location, what is the first in the Bay Area, I believe, is so much fun. But beware . . . it's not for everyone, like my mum who doesn't much care for the long hair... More

Peet's Coffee in Oakland California an excellent option but a little unkempt! The coffee and sweets were excellent but there was a LOT of trash they had not cleaned up on the floor, which was a bit of a turn off.

Coffee lovers, this is the place. It was the first Peet's, and makes wonderful different coffees. It's a nice neighborhood, around the corner from the main part of "Gourmet Ghetto." There are also lots of regulars who come by and hang out.

I buy my beans somewhere else, but when I want a well-made capuccino or coffee con panna, this is the place to go.

This is the best coffee ever. The shop us very busy all the time. The pastries are OK, but I come for the coffee. I've moved to the East Coast & now have Peet's shipped to me. Major Dickinson is full bodied, dark grind.

Peet's Coffee in Walnut Square in Berkeley, California is the first of many locations of Peet's Coffee. During the late 1970s, I was a graduate student at University of California, majoring in biochemistry, and my apartment was on Walnut Street, almost directly across from Peet's. The last time I was at Peet's was a month ago (Sept. 2014). Peet's is... More

Here on business and stopped in since I saw the sign out front for the New Coconut Mocha Freddo. It was around 5:00. Store was messy and dirty. The barista if you could call him that was worthless. Incorrect drinks were up and mine tasted like a watered down iced coffee with enough whip to kill someone. No coconut flavor.... More

Peets coffee & tea does sell some good quality coffee and a range of little treats to go with it. Certainly better coffee than Starbucks so do try it.

When I walk in and see the tapestries on the wall; when I see the tables filled w/ people talking or just working on their laptop; when I order my Chai or other of their wonderful teas; when I talk w/ long-time Peetniks -- the experience is so fine. Peets has a policy of investing in an area and almost... More
