Peets and the coffee bikes

Rumor had it that the Peet's location at the Ferry building had a discount for bike riders. I know they do offer 10¢ off when you bring your own mug, but so do many local coffee shops around the city, which is nice.
I already get much love with my SFBC card-discounts, so I was uncertain if this was only for people that worked there, used the ferry etc. & so, rumor is true.
[Cute young lady-staff, confirmed: "For the month of November, the Peet's Coffee & Tea /location in the Ferry building - San Francisco is offering $1 off when you roll by with your bike. Just testing it out for the month and will perhaps continue if there is demand for it.]
Save a buck and get caffeinated.
Pass the word, dear bike coffee lovers


get your fix

sweet suited man & his cool red schwinn!

  1. Just curious: is one supposed to wheel one's bike into the Ferry Building and, like...prop it up in the hallway and point to it when up at the register? Or...show one's bike lock key or helmet or other incriminating accessory? Or just mention that one rode a bike there?

  3. RPretty/ you're welcome ;)

    Chester/ its cool (LOL-flashlite link)
    They seem pretty chill about it. Im sure if you just tell them you're a bike rider they'll be okay, since there's lots of foot traffic it'll be obvious some people will use the racks around the bldg.
    I've been there a few times now, and it's cool to see the staff is more than happy to offer their bike incentive thing goin on.
    Cheers! ‹♥with coffee›

  9. in regard to the $1 off deal- the swell manager at this peet's (a dapper gent named steve) has instated this discount. All you need for the discount is to bring in your helmet, or point vaguely to what may well be your bike, unicycle, tricycle, what-have-you. My insider information comes from my position as an employee of Peet's at the Ferry Bldg. so come on by!
