Welcome to Taylor-Maid Do-nuts of Pomona. Unfortunately, this donut shop evidently changed hands and the vintage marquee outside is now history.

Big donuts are always fun to see while traveling the great American roadside. This one in Long Beach at Angel Food Donuts is no exception.

Well, as 2001 came along, so came the pink pastry. The Angel Food Do-nuts along 7th is now closed and history, replaced by this pink icon.

Looking to grab a snack from the convenience of your car? Well, this programmatic architecture delight is a real drive-thru donut joint featuring 26 foot tall donuts on each end of the structure, serving as end caps. The Donut Hole has been delighting San Gabriel Valley donut lovers for years.

The building was one of a total of five that was once part of a chain. Built in 1968, the Donut Hole is the only one of its kind left.

Off the old 101 in Oceanside, CA is this sign for the Baskin Robbins ice cream. The lettering for the ice cream still stands out at night, though the sign was recently modified.

Here is a photo of a former Burger Chef Restaurant which is now the B&B Donut shop in Fullerton,CA. The large marquee sign is gone, but look at the top of the building and notice the large brace which once held the Burger Chef sign.
