My wife loves Peet's coffee blend. I am ok with it. The Cafe is a haunt of regulars like the local Starbucks is. Personally I couldn't tell the difference between their Pumpkin spice latte and Starbucks. Both ok I guess.

I have a soft spot for this place having frequented it decades ago when it was one of a kind. This is the original item,and still has the same charm even if updated a bit. The coffee is great and it is in an area that has a few unique shops and a couple of Berkeley institutions.

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!
