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.

The baristas at this location are always new and can barely make the items offered on the menu, especially if you ask for any flavored syrup. Also, I feel like in general they're pretty dirty looking...I think washing your hair before work should be a health code recommendation if it isn't. Not my favorite coffee shop by a long shot...

Peet's is the best coffee! We are just regular brew fans. The Brookline store is centrally located on Harvard St and has quick service!

No one in their right mind would go to Starbucks in any of its Brookline locations if they can get to Peets in Coolidge Corner or Chestnut Hill. The coffee at Peets is fresh, the staff are friendly and knowledgeable, the pastry is fresh, the room is clean and spacious. I wish there were a few more Peets in downtown... More

I like the coffee much better than Starbucks'; pastries are okay but nothing special. The atmosphere here is really pleasant.

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!

Good coffee and friendly service. Amazing that they survive only several doors away from a Starbucks.

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 themselves. It's with the customers, who occupy prizes seats for hours. So customers who actually... 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.
