Berkeley-born chain featuring signature coffee, tea & blended drinks alongside baked goods.
Alfred Peet launchedthe first worldwide coffeehouse widely endorsed by the public in Berkeley, CA, on April 1, 1966, approximately two weeks after he began working for B. Koorn & Company, his father's coffee and tea wholesale company in Alkmaar. He returns to college to find foreign suppliers of coffee and tea. He's still making by hand and tinkering with machines.
I prefer this location to the vast majority. The place's staff is friendly, set in a beautiful environment, and it contains lots of fun activities.
