Pete's cappuccinos are out of this world. Most of the baristas make exquisite foam - many with designs on it, such as hearts and leaves. The only drawback is that there is limited seating, so you may have to wait for a table.

Great coffee. Nice ambiance, but can get to crowded (standing room only). Still, it's the only coffee shop in the area that equals or exceeds the quality of the Starbucks (a few doors down).

Recently renovated and beautiful, Peet's is definitely a place to hang out, drink awesome coffees and enjoy the specialty drinks. The regulars here give it a caffeinated Cheers style atmosphere. The whip cream is fresh and thick and they offer both almond and soy milks as dairy alternatives

Peet's always offers good coffee and it is great to see that they finally re imaged the outlet which brought a refreshing ambience. More comfortable seating.

Stopped in at 7:30 a.m. on a Saturday morning with a friend whose group meets here most mornings. It seems to be a great place to socialize, catch up, and pass the morning, with brisk traffic and comings and goings. They have the usual range of cafe specialties including some very nice croissants that they will heat properly for you.... More

Cosy coffee shop, friendly staff. Will be closing for a complete renovation taking 5 weeks, from 25 July 2016. Hopefully there will be more seating.

Friendly service, love the oolong tea. They serve honey what's not to love! Almond milk too! I get to have it my way. Very busy on Saturday morning. Limited seating; $6.09 + tip for medium cup of tea with almond milk, slice of pumpkin bread

Stopped in here on Saturday night for a late night coffee. It was quiet and pleasant even though a few other customers were there. The coffee was good... I enjoyed the Mayan Mocha, which had hints of cinnamon and pepper in it. A good alternative to Starbucks.
