Beside much better coffee and tea, it is where many world-renowen JPL and CalTech scientists, engineers, current and future Nobel Prize winners hang out. At times when they were a bit loud, I get to hear all about the upmost incredible discussions of my life....More

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.

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.
