This is the first store where I noticed a different color for the open ceiling, gray instead of brown. I also noticed what appears to be fluffy pillowy things up in the ceiling, but no one was able to tell me what they were. The only thing I could think was that if gravity were suddenly reversed, those inside the store would be okay.

According to the plaque on the wall outside the door, this store is located inside the historic Washington building, and its non-standard design reflects its unique character. There's a lot of white in the store, matching the outside of the building. The menu has a simpler look. The sofa, tables, and counters all have a different look.

When I visited this store, I was rather taken with the unusual structure out front, which I can only assume is intended to communicate with alien life. I was less impressed, however, with the shabby treatment shown me by the baristas. Building too many Starbucks too hire good staff, perhaps? Hmmm...

I found out later that UCO stands for "Urban Coffee Opportunities".

And by a stroke of fortune, I shared a table with a young lady who happened to win a pair of tickets to the event, and her friends all happened to be out of town, so she offered me her spare ticket. If you ever see this, thanks again Sophie!!

Oh, silly me--the Starbucks maven himself had confused this store with the licensed kiosk in the Albertson's across the street. Thankfully, an eagle-eyed visitor to my site alerted me to the mix-up!

Another drive-thru/walk-up only store, but still a rarity as of April '06.

This is a pretty little store that opened around Christmas at this busy L.A. intersection. I overheard the staff talking about how they expected traffic to increase dramatically once the summer tourist season arrived. Gotta make a mental note to reshoot this store waaaay early in the morning. Years later, I reshoot it in the afternoon, and I think this photo looks much nicer than the original.

Passing the Sunset Strip, Santa Monica Blvd is the place to be (or not to be, if you dislike traffic and crowds).

Ah, this is more like it--a downtown that doesn't look like it was built yesterday, but without the level of congestion and litter of a major city. Oh, this is Whittier, by the way.

Besides the landscaping and the spacious patio (although facing a road that's nothing to look at), I also have to like this store for the bar-like wall, aoubt waist height, that runs the length of the counter, perfect for continuing to work on a laptop while waiting in line to order.

This store surprised me, because I do not think I had seen a gas station/Starbucks combo since the Purge, and maybe for a decade even.
