PRISCILLA’S COFFEE, TEA & GIFTS
Popular coffeehouse with outdoor sidewalk seating and gift shop.
Priscilla’s maintains a tradition of excellence in providing coffees, teas, pastries, muffins, and croissants to their dedicated fans from adjacent movie studios and beyond.
The ambiance is really nice, like a good place to catch up with a friend!!
Also, the employee informed me there are no outlets here, because the owners wanted it to be more of a social coffee shop, so not really a good place to study with laptops. Sad when my laptop died :(.
They have a few open spots for street parking that is 2 hours free Monday-Friday. I came on a Sunday afternoon so there were 3-4 spots available on the street! Full Review
I'm not a coffee girl but a tea lover.
The Oregon Chai is insane. Earl grey with milk is excellent. The coffee has won me over; Vanilla Cinnamon Hazelnut is delicious. Parking a nightmare, walk if you can. Full Review
Even though Priscilla's has been around since the dawn of time (aka, ever since I've been frequenting the area), I've always dismissed it because it didn't have the flare that I am generally attracted to in coffee shops. It looked a little dated and reminiscent of a Burbank of yore.
And while it may not have the chic look, it's definitely got all the goods you'd want in a coffee shop. The staff is quick-witted and friendly, they have blueberry ice coffee (not flavored with syrup, but beans actually roasted or strained with blueberries), and plenty of indoor/outdoor seating.
I'm not as enamored with their non-liquid offerings and when you get a bagel you toast it yourself, but hey, that just means you'll get it toasted to your liking! Full Review
