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.

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.

I was less impressed, however, with the shabby treatment shown me by the baristas. Building too many Starbucks too hire good staff, perhaps? Hmmm...

This store, opened in partnership with Magic Johnson, was a hot spot for chess when I arrived, with at least three or four games in progress. On a return visit in 2007, the chess was still present, and I learned they were a regular thing, like every day.

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!!

This is the first (or is it the second) of a new concept of drive-thru store.

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!

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.

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.
