Dunkin’ Donuts first location in CA, located at 12th and Wilshire in Santa Monica, California. What a treat every time I hit New York or Florida I have to stop by for some French Vanilla Coffee and a couple of my favorite frosting filled powdered donuts or dozen assorted munchkins (donut holes). Now I can pop in and enjoy DD’s after my morning run to the pier.
