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.

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

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.

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

Mr. Peet was the original coffee roaster and Peet's coffee is still the best! You can buy many varieties brewed or bagged in multiple Berkeley Peet's or the grocery store.

The coffee at Peet's is the real thing--not like the watered down dish water that is sold at Starbucks. Peet's also has very good tea (in a pot with a real cup). Peet's will sell you great coffee and tea for you to take home and enjoy the Peet's experience again and again. There should be a Peet's store next... More

I hate franchise coffee. But this one still pretty good. They truly deliver. Much better than the mermaid one. Also I like the little coffee and tea gadgets arround.
