Excellent coffee

We like this business, good coffee and nice areas to relax indoors and out. Plenty of parking. Not walking distance to beach.

Like all coffee joints Peets is overpriced. Bit otherwise its an okay place to sit and talk for a few minutes. Close to park and Pacific Coast Manor if you are visiting a relative.

Service and quality make that other chain look like... well, let's just say not good. They also have some amazing snacks to go with that awesome coffee. Fair warning, though: it is strong!

Great coffee - get a cup and take home some beans - Arabian Mocha-java or Major Dickinson's...you won't be sorry.

Wandered in at dinner time - was looking for something a bit more substantial. I was the only customer present, so the two clerks spent several minutes telling me all about the local offerings - great way to get business for the next morning's cup of tea!

I love Peets coffee for so many reasons. There are a great company, make excellent coffee, and are so conveniently located when I visit Capitola. My special treat is the Mayan Mocha. It's a great afternoon pick me up!

Have always loved Peet's Coffee & am glad we have one so close! Their full, rich blends are much better than Starbuck's! Their bakery choices are yummy, both savory & sweet. It's a great place to start the day & a great pick-me-up spot for the late un the day slump. Nice place to meet someone or nice spot to... More

There are a couple other Peet's in the area, but this one in Capitola (near Soquel) is my favorite. I love their coffee--much preferred to Starbucks--and the laid back atomosphere. Major Dickason's blend (now also available in decaf, if for some reason you need this) is my favorite coffee, but their special offerings are always worth trying too.

Thank CAjal
