Why Donut Time's Closing Marks the End of an Era in L.A.

Donut Time, the iconic doughnut shop at Highland Avenue and Santa Monica Boulevard, is out of time. 

Visitors looking to grab a sugary treat at the famed filming location for Tangerine have been greeted with boarded-up windows, locked doors and a handwritten sign that offers no other explanation aside from three words: "We are closed."

Joey Much, whose aunt Seang Mak owns the shop and frequently ran the cash register, confirmed to the Weekly that the late-night eatery is shuttered for good.  Mak, 67, retired last year and is now living in Cambodia, Much told us. Records show that she still owns the property, but it remains to be seen if or when a new business will replace the legendary Hollywood hangout. via LA Weekly
