I don't consider myself a coffee snob but i noticed immediately that my latte from Peet's was better than the rest. Great foam, quality espresso and a friendly atmosphere. I came here on my second morning in Santa Monica and kept coming back each morning...More

I really like Peet's. I am more of a brewed coffee guy. Can't go wrong. Their latte is also delicious. Not a big fan of Starbiuck's brewed coffee.

Have gone there for years. Nothing else on Montana Ave measures up. Staff is well trained and forever cordial. Coffee drinks are good. Indoor and outdoor seating. Acoustics are poor. Some areas are very loud -- and cold in temperature. A nice place to read,...More

The coffee is rich in flavor which is unique for a coffee chain. The beans are ground before each cup and it really makes a difference. They have a selection of pastries and seasonal sweets. I look forward to the first sip of my iced...More

Chains need to understand that a good product does not always cut it. We went to Peet's last Sunday on Montana. They make a better brew than Starbucks for sure and Montana Ave has many coffee establishments. A good experience from a cup of coffee...More

Am staying across the street from Peets on vacation, how lucky am I to have this gem on my doorstep? I can't tell one celebrity from the next, I just love the atmosphere, the wide street patio and the relaxed feel. I like the hazelnut...More

Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller
