“Top notch coffee with a smile”
Reviewed August 18, 2014

Love the excellent coffees at Peet's in Pleasant Hill. The baristas are smiling and friendly and are happy to make any variations to your coffee order. Pleasant atmosphere but this is a small place and gets very crowded sometimes. Be prepared to ask to share a table or to sit on a high stool at the little raised counter in the back or on one of the benches outside along the sidewalk. Just have to add: really, people, drink your coffee, have your conversation, then leave so others can have a chance to sit and enjoy their beverages. Too many students hogging up space with laptops open and empty cups. Even a couple of single ladies, each parked at her own table, finished with coffee and just hanging out doing crafts or just reading a book. Try the public library for that! Perhaps a polite sign could be posted reminding patrons that this is a COFFEE shop. Same things happen at Starbucks but they have more space for hanging out indefinitely.

“Friendly service. Very good location.”
Reviewed August 12, 2014

Really enjoyed the early morning trips to Peet's. We were staying at the Hyatt House, and it was in close proximity.

“They Get It About Tea.”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

I hadn't been in the Pleasant Hill store for a while, but when I went in this time, they knew right away what Kalimpong Tea was. If you don't know, you're missing out on my favorite tea on the planet. Anyway, the location right in the center of the hippest part of Pleasant Hill is also a plus. It's a nice mini-workout-walk from Pleasant Hill BART. And it's a great break place for weary local bus travelers going to and from the social services offices located in the hot, lonely hills of Martinez. The staff is nice here, and I've made a great friend from that place. Lots of good karma around there. I miss living in Pleasant Hill, and I miss that Peets. I hope to stop through there more often.

“Good coffee, great service”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

Good coffee - they have a huge variety and you can buy coffee to prepare at home. A small sitting area and a good selection of sweets to go with your coffee.

“Always the Best”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

Amazing that the help changes, yet the drinks and service level stays high. How do they do it? Other companies could use their example!!!!
