I went in this Starbucks because it is right across the street from my hotel, Hotel Monterey. I was pleasantly surprised to find the shrine right outside the Starbucks (opposite the street entrance). You can sit in comfortable chairs and look out at the shrine or walk about the shrine grounds. Very cool.

Japan still has a way to go before the Coffee Culture is as prevalent as Oz. However, for a coffeeholic craving a coffee hit Starbucks saved the day on a number of occasions. Have a good range of light lunches and snacks also.

A friendly coffeeshop to take a rest in-between all sightseeing in Kyoto. Sitting by the window and looking at the garden shrine was really something unique, quiet and serene.

Heard it to be the best Starbucks in Kyoto. Friendly and warm staff. Amazing window view with a shrine outside. A combination of old and new Japan. By the way, NHK building is within minutes walk, 8k TV there is amazing, too.

If I were employed by an American Company and foreign guests often could/would come by, I would really very much try to learn English. Not even their own products they could serve when ordered in English.
It has become better over the years (in some places), but Kyoto where more than 50 mill Japanese and foreign tourist visit every year, it is poor.
