The meaning of "Starbucks" in various phrases and sentences

Q: Co znaczy He said it was not disputed that a Starbucks employee drew an image of a smile and what was referred to in the hearing as "slanty" eyes on the cup as a way of marking it as Ms Foley's cup.?
A: I've broken the sentence down into two parts. This should be easier to understand:

1. He said it was not disputed that a Starbucks employee drew an image of a smile on the cup as a way of marking it as Ms Foley's cup.
2. The image of a smile on the cup was referred to in the hearing as "slanty" eyes.

From the looks of it, somebody is suing Starbucks for that "slanderous" drawing.
Q: Co znaczy I need to top up my Starbucks card ?

"Top up" generally means "add more of something."

"Can you top up my drink?"

"I want to top up my gas tank before we go on the trip."

A: Let me try rephrasing this for you and see if that helps. "Go to Starbucks and buy me a coffee." Essentially, that's what this phrase means.

If you see "across", think 건너편. In this case, it means the donut store is on the other side of the street of the Starbucks.

Q: Jaka jest różnica między Starbucks temporarily closed 8,000 locations, including some in California. i Starbucks temporarily closed 8,000 locations, including in California. i Starbucks temporarily closed 8,000 locations, including California. ?
A: The first one is the best, the second one may be okay in speech only -- it's a bit awkward sounding. The third one doesn't work.

"Locations" in this case refer to "stores". If you say something like "8,000 stores, including California", you are saying that California is a store. That's why the third option isn't acceptable.
