    Significance Statement
    Excellent example of a Googie coffee shop with distinctive features of the style. Based on a design prototype by Armet and Davis, preeminent architects of the Googie style. The building is neither 50 years of age at this time nor is it of exceptional importance; therefore it does not meet the age requirement for National Register eligibility.
