Lets see - I've been to all of these.
TJ's Cupertino - awful parking.
TJ's Taylor and Coleman - bad parking
TJ's Mtn View - bad parking
TJ's Santa Cruz downtown- poor parking
TJ's Santa Cruz by Capitola Mall - good parking!!
TJ's Sunnyvale - poor parking
TJ's Westwood Blvd, L A - Shares lot with Chase Bank - parking's usually OK except when the attendants don't stop a couple of entitled a-holes (probably like that woman who wanted Adelaide's vindaloo) parking way over the line and thus: taking two spots.
TJ's Sepulveda & Palms, L A -Shares lot with CVS - parking there can be OK to horrible.
TJ's Robertson's Blvd, Culver City - attached to a Parking Structure, parking's usually OK, but you might have to go to another level.
Adelaide, good for you! I would have told her about the other TJ's in the area and suggested she ask the managers for more locations. If she made some excuse about how inconvenient it would be for her, I'd raise my eyebrows and ask, "and what do you think I'd have to do? Are you implying my time is less important than yours?"
