Weird Signs Around Los Angeles: Coffee & Coffee

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

We've noticed a lot of weird signs around the Los Angeles area, and we've decided that it is up to us to start chronicling and archiving these treasures. Who knows how much longer they'll be around? We already lost the beloved Ship's sign *sniff*, and we want to catch the rest before they fade into obscurity.

Over on Western, just north of 3rd street, on the east side of the street, you'll spot this gem. There, folks must really believe in truth and advertising. We think that they really want to impress upon you the point of what they serve. In case you didn't get it from the first part of the name, they really drive it home in the second part. And if you happened to miss that, they make sure you'll notice it on the awning above the doorway.

Apparently there may also be a sandwich.
