No cup of coffee is better than Peet's. When I had my first cup, in Berkeley, several years ago, I lamented that LA had no Peet's coffee houses. Now we have several, including one the San Fernando Valley (Studio City). I love full-bodied coffee, and appreciate them all. But Peet's, in my book, beats them all. Hail to Peet's.
Only one place for a cup of Joe!.
Hands down, the best. Especially on Santa Monica's Main Street. They have the best roasts, a great courtyard patio with waterfall designed by Frank Gehry, and they're dog friendly too.
