Take a look at a neighborhood coffee shop. It's Darby's in the San Fernando Valley. Reminiscent of many an old local coffee shop, Darby's still stands tall.

An old coffee shop, this Spires in Wilmington lost its huge marquee recently, a sign that used to catch the attention of truckers and travelers alike. At least the coffee shop itself still remains in business.

Anyone looking to set up a new office at at site of a former space age coffee shop? Well, here's one for you. Though the photographer can't quite remember the location and the phone number is cut off prior to the 2nd number, this place is available. This location looks to be a former Sambo's Restaurant.

Norma's Restaurant looks like it was an old Norm's or some other coffee shop. Wonder what the original location name was.

Lisa's Coffee Shop features an old style marquee and eye catching paint job on the restaurant itself. Serving breakfast and lunch, this joint is typical of the neighborhood eatery which is now becoming rarer and rarer, not like a steak.
