Good coffee and friendly service. Amazing that they survive only several doors away from a Starbucks.

This Peet's seems similar to Starbucks in that it serves delicious, albeit expensive, coffees and teas. It's a pleasant, and very central location, and a great place for a refreshment. But the beef I have with this places has nothing to do with the places themselves. It's with the customers, who occupy prizes seats for hours. So customers who actually... More

I was visiting from Seattle so I've had my share of coffee. Starbucks, Pavement, Dunkin Donuts, boutiques, they're all over Boston but Peets is still the best place to grab an unpretentious and most excellent cup of joe. Friendly service, free wireless, great coffee.

Peet's Coffee is located in a great location in Coolidge Corner so great for people watching if you get one of the window seats. Their menu provides great variety for coffee, desserts, and even snacks for little ones. There is a good amount of space to sit and relax or do work and the staff is very friendly.

If you rather like Starbucks, but prefer to give your business to smaller companies, this is your choice in Coolidge Corner. Peet's is about 50 m North from Starbucks, on Harvard Street. No difference, or almost none, in products and service. Just smaller and more personal. If you think that way.

Not much to say other than this place makes great coffee. I did not have any food here, but I often stop in for coffee when I'm in Brookline.

Both hot and iced coffee is out of this world. Pastries just OK. If you go just for the coffee you will not be disappointed. No fruit smoothies for the kids but they did have bottled beverages. Friendly, patient staff.

I lived in the Midwest when a friend who was from Ca introduced me to this treat. The coffee afficiando I have become is owed to Peets great taste.

Friendly staff. Excellent coffee, short on seating. By far the best hot coffee and iced coffee in town.
