Good place for tea/coffee. There is Einstein Bagel attached - next door. Limited seating inside, but a nice patio outside - some of which is shaded. It gets busy, but normally can find a table. There is parking lot behind.

We went for coffee but had some cookies to go with too. It is right next to a parking lot so there is no problem to find a spot.

Great place for a strong cup of coffee. Good treats and good atmosphere. The Lake and California location in Pasadena is especially charming with a nice courtyard.

Loved this Peets. Store is really cute and coffee great as always but the standout is the courtyard/patio area. An oasis in downtown Pasadena.

A known known so what's not to like. Location was excellent and the counter service was great. We like Peet's coffee more than Starbuck's offerings and they have better bakery too.

Peet's Coffee place and Einstein Bros Bagels -- linked together physically and symbolically in the imagination. Peet's makes some of the best coffee in Pasadena, and Einstein makes some super bagels -- my favourite Pumpernickel and lox. It's the best. But the place to sit is Peet's because it has the atmosphere. It's not surprising, perhaps that the two establishments... More

I've been there the day they opened in Pasadena. Great place. It has seen a lot of pierced and tattoed barrista's since that day, but always a stop for a good strong cup of coffee and a treat. But I always seem to look away when the ringed-lipped, nose-pierced, prince albert server passes over my coffee.
