Blargh, Peet’s Coffee on Queen Anne Ave closing today

Via the Queen Anne View neighborhood blog, disappointing news about the top of the hill:

As we welcome in 2010, Queen Anne may be saying goodbye to a third of the neighborhood’s caffeine corner. Reader Ann Chen walked in to Peet’s Coffee & Tea at the top of the hill yesterday to find a closing sign and the news that today, January 1, 2010, may be their last.
Confirmed by a Peet’s employee at the store.
