It was cold and rainy and I already had my 1 cup of coffee per day, so I inquired about tea. While I have heard of Oolong, the employee was helpful in explaining differences between the teas.

Like all coffee joints Peets is overpriced. Bit otherwise its an okay place to sit and talk for a few minutes. Close to park and Pacific Coast Manor if you are visiting a relative.

I love Peets coffee for so many reasons. There are a great company, make excellent coffee, and are so conveniently located when I visit Capitola. My special treat is the Mayan Mocha. It's a great afternoon pick me up!
