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.

Its small and crowded and I've been here a few times in the afternoon but never once have been able to get a seat.

I had heard of Peet's before, but never been to one. We visited this location in Brookline and the people there were really nice. They were close to closing for the evening, but I could tell that the guy making my drink really enjoyed it and took care in making it- very rare! Nice young adults working that night!

Peets has really good coffee, whether it's regular or if you want a specialty like a latte. For those who don't like dunkin donut's or starbucks, I'd say Peets is a great alternative and their environment is great for hanging out or studying. I thought they're a local chain but they're actually nationwide?? Their prices aren't cheap, but much more... More
