Review
Classic dark wood Peet's on Market St. Some table seating with plenty of retail space for tea, coffee, and accessories. Coffee is roasted daily, but sometimes they grind it in advance of espresso orders. Espresso has a moderately thick dark brown crema with light splotches. (It can run thinner, but it's typically dark.) Flavor of light smoke, spice, some pepper, and traces of a buttery vanilla taste. Served a bit haphazardly in gilded logo cups.
