We stopped here for a quick coffee and were surprised with how good it tasted. Food is also very good and you get to enjoy your breakfast in the sun with an ocean view

OMG. What great pastries. I am so thrilled to find Peet's Coffee on Cannery Row. I stayed at the Holiday Inn for my last trip, but I put on my sweats and walked down the hill every morning for a cup of Peet's.
