More than once, I've had to override my craving for the luscious coffee brews concocted by this place because I couldn't park anywhere near it, or even slow down to seek parking because of traffic. The staff at this Starbucks location are skilled, friendly, and efficient. I've never been disappointed by a frappucino or a bag of beans purchased there. However, it can be impossible to patronize this establishment because of the lack of parking and its proximity to raging traffic. Furthermore, when forced outside because of the lack of indoor seating, one often must contend with hordes of smokers as well as auto exhaust fumes, limiting one's enjoyment of one's beverage. I love having a Starbucks in the neighborhood. I just hope they move this one to a larger, more accessible venue.
just tried this starbucks today. fairly small parking lot, but it's easy to get to as it's right off the pacific exit on 134. it's on the corner or burchett and pacific. the seating inside was limited, so if you're looking for a place to work in AC, this probably isn't the one. however, if you enjoy the outside, there's a pretty good sized patio area. service was as expected, as was the drink. i tried the hibiscus berry refresher (free) as their special today and if you enjoy something different from iced tea, you'll like it. i would compare it to something like a crystal light drink.
This Starbucks at the corner of Pacific and Burchett has an unusual round shape from the curve of the intersecting streets. It's a nice space in an old building, and the staff has the usual Starbucks efficiency and friendliness. The only drawback is in seating and parking. There are only a few parking spaces outside, so the City of Glendale limits this Starbucks to only a few chairs.
