Friendly staffs who are helpful and efficient in getting the orders prepared and delivered. However, the quality of the coffee was a bit disappointing - too acidic, bitter and seemed overcharred. Not sure if it's just the particular batch of coffee they used or they really over-roasted it.

Bought coffee and skipped the food. Line goes into the parking lot some mornings. Moves quickly and worth the wait. Bought some coffee to take home to OH.

I love Peet's Coffee! I've been buying my morning breve latte here since 1983. These folks know how to roast good coffee beans. A while back they were acquired by Mighty Leaf Tea. Thankfully, so far the high quality remains consistent.

Strolling down University Ave. I love stopping in this location for a coffee and dessert. The atmosphere is fun and the staff is great.

I'm a Peet's fan due to their darker roast coffee plus they make the small drinks stronger than other coffee shops. This particular shop alway has good service.

Consistently the best coffee and espresso drinks in the Bay Area. Primarily take out. Depending upon the time of day and line, it is normally a 10 - 15 minute stop.

In Charleston Square, corner of El Camino Real and San Antonio Road, and one in downtown Los Altos. All serve great, strong coffee, plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. Pet friendly

Nothing to keep me coming back. The pastries they have are OK but there is better just across the parking lot.

Always a great place to get strong, fresh coffee. It's like every Peet's. I went to the one in the Town and Country mall. Nice bookstore (Book's Inc) right near by.
