The Mayflower Shop served Maxwell House coffee, and the corner neon sign promised to passersby that a cup of it would be "good to the last drop."

Lastly, attention is brought here to the defunct blog Lower Modernisms, by Architecture Burger. Blogger and architect James Black organized a biking excursion to the eight great Giant Donuts of Los Angeles in 2016 whereby they visited all eight sites, but the group fell short of consuming donuts at each and every destination.
His final blog post on May 30, 2016 provided a deeper dive into the dough at the Donut Hole, located at 15300 Amar Road in La Puente.
It is too bad he no longer blogs - as this blogger enjoyed his wonderful photography, knowledgeable reportare and architecture lingo. Perhaps with the conclusion of the hole-y donut pilgrimage - he was fed up. Puns intended.
