I have been taking my morning espresso here since 1987 and I purchased my beans for my home espresso machine every month. The quality is superior. Much better than Starbuscks

Nothing like visiting Peet's in Berkeley, the home of the original Peet's. A recent rehab of the interior has spiffed up the place quite a bit. Long lines early in the morning but great place to go.

We stopped for a relaxing visit. It seems to be one of the few places in the area with brewed iced tea. Ginger cookies have real, fresh ginger.

An excellent coffee right near the BART station. Lively person at the counter who loves Star Trek. You can get the usual assortment of drinks and sweets.

I've gone to this Peet's repeatedly when in the Walnut Square area. I haven't found it to be as consumer friendly as the more modern Peet's--it's more like we know you want our coffee so we're not going to speed up the process. Also, only about 5-7 tables that are often filled by paper readers and pc users. Has a... More

I love that this is the very first store that Peet's opened. But outside of that all of the other Peet's cafe's have the same great quality coffee.

I am a die hard Pete's fan. This location is the original Pete's. Once you've had a Pete's coffee you wont go back to Starbucks. I find their brewed coffee too strong, but their Lattes are the best!

The first Peet’s store located on the corner of Walnut and Vine in the so called “Gourmet Ghetto” of North Berkeley. (Note that Peet's predates the now omnipresent Starbucks, and actually served as a model for that enterprise. The original Starbucks, so to speak.) Inside the store one can find some items about the history of Peet’s on display. Very... More

This is the original Peet's Coffee store. It has seating indoors and outside as well as the usual coffee and tea paraphernalia. It is located in Berkeley's gourmet ghetto and a great place for people watching.
