The Capri Coffee Shop is yet another one of the former Denny's that took a life of its own. This restaurant, which used to be across the street from the former Al's Liquor, was demolished a couple of years ago.

This former site of Van de Kamp's lost its windmill and turned into a dutch looking restaurant with a Western theme. Alas, the Western theme didn't appear to work as the Covered Wagon is now just another vacant building, now demolished.

Rod's Coffee shop was a local hangout for customers back in the day. This coffee shop, also once located in Montebello, has gone through several iterations in recent years, including a stint as an Armenian restaurant.

Well, while the Arcadia Denny's is still serving customers, this classic Denny's coffee shop in Agoura Hills met its end in the latter part of 2002. Check out the orb that graced the marquee. Another roadside treasure has served its last dish.
