Name: Farmer's REstaurant (renamed C&G)
Architect/Year:
Year:

Street: 115 S La Brea Ave
City: Inglewood
State: CA
Zip: 90301
Country:
Phone: 310 672-8383

Type: Coffee Shop
Style Googie
Status: semi-preserved

Today, I visited the Farmer's Restaurant, renamed C&G.

The cirlces on the "Checkmark" roofline are brighltly painted purple & blue, which makes them really stand out. Nice bit of accenting.

The sign is now yellow and blue, which does not create as dramatic of a contrast.

Unfortunately, even though it was lunchtime, there were not many people there. I hope it does not go the way of Johnnie's.

On LaBrea and Century, SouthWest corner, there is Norma's, which features the "checkmark" and the "woogles(?)" - cicular holes.
