There might not be a logical straight line from a taco spot to a tiny donut shop, but Danny Trejo is not really the logical straight line kind of guy. Apart from the fairly constant line and very pink paint job (for when the crowd at the Paul Smith pink wall gets to be too much), the actor’s new spot on Santa Monica Blvd. is a fairly basic place for coffee and donuts - and we mean that as a compliment. The coffee is hot (and not in any way artisan), and the OG and Coco Loco donuts are very good.
