Duke's Coffee Shop on Sunset ... gone ...

I'm a little nostalgic about this.
I don't remember ever going to it when it was in that motel in WeHo, but went pretty regularly to the Sunset location.
I liked it when it was divey. They had a couple of good burgers, some good breakfasts (including a scramble with hot peppers that I loved) and good diner coffee.
When they remodeled -- it was never the same. The old vibe was gone. The communal tables were gone. Some of the staff remained, which was nice, but the feeling was different. It felt ... corporate.
Some new beer and wine bar is moving in. End of an era -- nothing lasts forever.
