Peet’s Coffee and Tea: A California Chain in Texas

Peet's Coffee and Tea in Downtown Dallas

Peet’s Coffee occupies an unassuming storefront just off of Pearl Station downtown

Like In-N-Out Burger, Peet’s Coffee and Tea is a recent import from California. And like In-N-Out, it has a very dedicated following. Fans of the coffee chain call themselves Peetniks, and they go out of their way to get their fix.

Peet’s Coffee Review

In my latest coffee shop review for The Dallas Socials, I take a look at this venerable coffee shop chain, and discuss whether or not the Downtown Dallas Location lives up to the hype. (Hint, it’s in a hotel lobby.)

Since this article was written, the downtown location has closed, though it does appear that there is still a non-franchised hotel coffee shop in the same space. As of February 2022, there does appear to be a licensed Peet’s kiosk at DFW Airport, though I haven’t been to that location. There are also locations in downtown Austin, as well as at Houston’s Hobby and Intercontinental Airports. But sadly, Peet’s Coffee remains a mostly West Coast chain.

Have you ever been to Peet’s? If so, what did you think? Let me know your thoughts in the comment section.
