Looking for a Great West Los Angeles Coffee Shop Try Peet's

Peet's Coffee 7 Tea, Westwood CA Coffee Shop, Where to Go in Westwood CA

If you are looking for a friendly place to sit read your newspaper, or use the wifi to check your email on your laptop in West Los Angeles, then Peet's is the place. First opened in 1966 in Berkeley, CA by Alfred Peet, Peet's Coffee and Tea became a gathering place for coffee lovers. Alfred Peet actually mentored the founders of Starbucks and supplied them with the coffee for their first three years in business. There are approximately nine stores on the Westside of Los Angeles, but the one I frequent is by far the best.

Westwood CA Peet's Coffee, Where to Go in Westwood CA

Located at 1854 Westwood Blvd. (just south of Santa Monica Blvd.) this Peet's is a true neighborhood cafe. The baristas are extremely friendly and know all their regular customers by name. The store is a magnet for the locals and if you sit there long enough, someone you know will come in. You may even have time to talk to them if you can tear yourself away from the friends you have made there. The Artisan baked goods are kosher and include an array of muffins, croissants, scones and Danish. Next time you are in the West Los Angeles area, do drop in and say hello. Oh, and did I mention the coffee is absolutely delicious.

Hi Jane, So this is where all the smart people go to hang out, drink delicious coffee and meet Jane Peters, their new connection to the Los Angeles Real Estate scene! Peet's sounds like a great place, I could have used some of their coffee this morning!

Jane, Peet's does have good coffee although my favorite is Tully's...too bad they don't have very many locations and we moved away from the one we used to go to in Pleasanton, CA. :(

This sounds like a great place to relax or just get some work done, Jane.  Not too many small businesses can say they mentored a business juggernaught like Starbucks!

Over 40 years in business says a whole lot about their customer service.  This is the type of business that I like to watch while dining, a great way to get ideas for my business.

You gotta love a place with that kind of staying power.  They've obviously embraced change ( the way our industry has to do) with moving from a 1966 coffee shop and the statbucks tie in... WOW.
