Here are a few roadside shots of the Mel-O-Creme Donuts of Springfield, IL. The marquee at the Mel-O-Creme looks to be a bit worn by the years, as the crown above the donut on the sign no longer radiates.

 

 

(Above) The location appears to always have traffic, which is great for its roadside appeal.

(Left) Check out the logo lettering on the side of the building.

How about some Don's Donuts with its fancy multicolored arrows over in Toledo, OH. The marquee even advertises Don's as having the "world's best coffee."

How can anyone resist a friendly baker holding a huge hot donut out to all traveling by? For many years, Sparkle Shops Donuts was the place to be in Rockford, Illinois. But no more as this donut shop and its unique marquee was torn down in 2000.

This Sonrise Donuts is now out of business but is still standing along old Route 66 in Springfield, IL. If you're looking for nice hot donuts on your way to work, this is no longer the place.
