The original Peet's

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.

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.

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

I had the WORST cup of coffee at the Peet's on Solano, last week. It was at the Solano Ave location. Burnt beans, not hot--and that was an Americano! Gone the way of corporate chains. Too bad. That must have the original Peet rolling over in his grave.

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.

what an amazing cafe. Peet's has the best coffee in town. Great cafe in a great neighborhood. Nice staff. Major Dickason beans are to die for.

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

I first heard of Peet's in the early 1980s when there were just a handful of stores, all in the Bay Area. I lived near Los Angeles, so I had to have beans shipped to me from their Emoryville roasting plant. Eventually, Peet's stores spread and I've visited many, but this was my first visit to the original Peet's. Of... 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.
