Giant Orange

The entirety of Joe's Giant Orange Cafe is now painted orange. The actual giant orange somewhat blends into the cafe, which is not itself giant.

Restaurant was closed... Now I'll never know how good their orange juice is..

Two photos seven years apart show the orange with "OPEN" written on it, but in a shuttered state. Perhaps Joe's Giant Orange Cafe uses the fruit as a vestigial landmark (whether they are really open or not).
