Great place for a strong cup of coffee. Good treats and good atmosphere. The Lake and California location in Pasadena is especially charming with a nice courtyard.

Loved this Peets. Store is really cute and coffee great as always but the standout is the courtyard/patio area. An oasis in downtown Pasadena.

A known known so what's not to like. Location was excellent and the counter service was great. We like Peet's coffee more than Starbuck's offerings and they have better bakery too.

Peet's Coffee place and Einstein Bros Bagels -- linked together physically and symbolically in the imagination. Peet's makes some of the best coffee in Pasadena, and Einstein makes some super bagels -- my favourite Pumpernickel and lox. It's the best. But the place to sit is Peet's because it has the atmosphere. It's not surprising, perhaps that the two establishments... More

I've been there the day they opened in Pasadena. Great place. It has seen a lot of pierced and tattoed barrista's since that day, but always a stop for a good strong cup of coffee and a treat. But I always seem to look away when the ringed-lipped, nose-pierced, prince albert server passes over my coffee.

Peet's is the best coffee available of the large chains. To my palate, their roast is superior to Starbucks and most others.

If you are in a hurry, stop here. If you have time and prefer a coffee shop with more umph, head to Tom and Tom's on Green. The location is sublime if you plan to shop along the southern end of Lake. Service is fairly quick, my only problem being how bitter the iced mochas taste (even with sugar they... More

Love, love, LOVE Peet's! The coffee is awesome, but what is even better is that they offer almond milk as an option for their latte's! Yayyyyyyy! The Pumpkin Chai Latte with Almond Milk is absolutely delicious!
