An artsy coffee shop is brewing up plans to "Revo-lutionize" the image of quaint and quiet Adams Square. But it is not nearby residents' cup of tea. Revo Art and Jazz Café reopened in early January after about two months of renovations. The changes are no revolution for Revo, but they might be for Adams Square, a small commercial district at the foot of Adams Hill in south Glendale. "The last one was just straight coffee shop — art and jazz café," said Aram Manoukian, owner of the Revo café.

Tim Willert Jack King hasn't thrown in the towel. Not yet, anyway. King is the longtime Burchett Street resident who has fought the city for nearly two years over a parking variance granted Starbucks. He received his second straight setback Wednesday when the Board of Zoning Adjustments voted to uphold a previous ruling not to revoke the variance, which the city issued to property owner Thomas Ortiz in April 2000, despite no off-street parking and just seven on-street parking spaces.

Glendale hosts a wonderful group of coffee shops, ranging from Montrose's City Hall, my morning haunt for the past few years, to Downtown's Foxy's, my brother Don Trowbridge's favorite for ages. Right in the middle is The Toasted Bun. If you want to know Glendale as it is now and as it has been, the Toasted Bun is a good place to go. You will know what makes it a classic as soon as you walk in. Open seven days a week for breakfast and lunch, the Toasted Bun is a friendly, comfortable place.

Tim Willert NORTHWEST GLENDALE -- Business is booming at Starbucks at the intersection of Burchett Street and Pacific Avenue. But some residents who live within walking distance of the trendy coffee shop are tired of the resulting traffic, parking and noise problems. "When I come home I can't even park in front of my own house," said Theresa Riservato, who has lived in the 500 block of Burchett for nearly 15 years. "But the biggest problem I have is the trash.

Tim Willert NORTHWEST GLENDALE -- A Glendale zoning officer ruled Friday that a popular coffee shop did not violate the conditions of a parking variance, despite protests from neighbors and warnings from police officers. Wolfgang Krause, a senior planner, considered revoking a city-issued variance for Starbucks at 469 Burchett St. because of complaints about parking, traffic and noise. "There wasn't adequate evidence to support revoking it," said Krause, who mailed his ruling on Friday.

A 21-year-old Glendale woman fought off a man who tried to steal her cellphone Wednesday outside a Starbucks coffee shop, police said. She was seated with her friend in the coffee shop's patio area about 7:40 p.m. in the 900 block of South Central Avenue, where they first spotted the man leaning against a light pole and staring at them, according to Glendale police spokeswoman Tahnee Lightfoot. The woman was preparing to use her cellphone, when he suddenly walked behind her and tried to pull it out of her left hand, she added.

The front-page article by Tim Willert regarding the Starbucks on Burchett and Pacific gives a very distorted picture of what I have observed. Tim takes a number of quotes from two neighbors who allege the coffee shop has created a negative effect on their neighborhood. Nothing could be further from the truth. First, the building previously housed a hair salon and day spa with 16 employees. Now, compare that to the parking required for individuals who drop in and grab a cup of java or some exotic mixture, then head out on the freeway.

On most Saturday afternoons in a small garage in Atwater Village, you can stop in for a cup of hand-roasted coffee, lounge on the couch and meet the other customers and friends of the owner who come by - or you can buy a bag to take home. It's not your typical coffee shop, which seems fitting for what customers describe as not your typical coffee. Greg Thomas, owner of Trystero Coffee, has been hand-roasting coffee and serving cups to customers and passersby alike for about three years.

A 72-year-old Glendale man testified Wednesday that two police officers used excessive force two years ago when they handcuffed him and broke his arm inside the Glendale Galleria. Asadoor Mirzaeyan was wearing a sling on his right arm in U.S. District Court, where his trial began against Officers Aaron Zeigler and Francisco Martinez, who he claims used excessive force and covered up accounts of the incident during his May 9, 2010, arrest. He testified with the help of an Armenian-translation interpreter that he took prescription pills that day and walked to the mall with a friend and met another acquaintance, who shared a half-cup of liquor with him. On his way out of the mall, Mirzaeyan said the officers, who were dressed in plain clothes and seated at a coffee shop, asked him to leave the mall numerous times but never identified themselves as officers.

Most of the roughly 40 people who attended a hearing Wednesday for a proposed Starbucks in Montrose expressed support for the coffee chain, arguing it would generate badly needed foot traffic for the mostly mom-and-pop business district. Starbucks wants to open a store on the southeast corner of Honolulu Avenue and Ocean View Boulevard. Company representatives appeared before Planning Officer Laura Stotler requesting a conditional-use permit to operate as a fast-food establishment because the store will have more than eight seats.

I, and many others, have experienced the uniqueness and small-town quality Montrose Shopping Park has had to offer for many years. However, with the proposed addition of Starbucks, we could lose that and it could become just another mall (“Proposed Starbucks stirs up Montrose,” Sept. 9). Do we really need a Starbucks, especially one that is located only a few blocks from another coffee shop? Even though Trader Joe's is opening soon and considered a chain store, it is based in Southern California, has a hometown feel and will be serving as an anchor for the shopping park, whereas Starbucks is an international chain, based in the state of Washington and would be located in the middle of the shopping park.
