Located right in the heart of Coolidge Corner, Peet's sees very high customer traffic, especially at peak hours. But their staff is never fazed -- always friendly, patient and efficient, regardless of how busy they are. Seating is a problem in busy periods -- many...More

This Peet's has a friendly staff and always has good coffee. I regularly buy lattes and beans. The beans are always fresh so the coffee I brew at home is delicious.

Great service, great coffee. Had a sample of a new brew they had on the counter. Very strong flavor. For those who like that kind of java, it was good!

This Peet's seems similar to Starbucks in that it serves delicious, albeit expensive, coffees and teas. It's a pleasant, and very central location, and a great place for a refreshment. But the beef I have with this places has nothing to do with the places...More

I was visiting from Seattle so I've had my share of coffee. Starbucks, Pavement, Dunkin Donuts, boutiques, they're all over Boston but Peets is still the best place to grab an unpretentious and most excellent cup of joe. Friendly service, free wireless, great coffee.
