Henry's Cafe
ebay

I love the vaulted area near the entrance.

The seller didn't include an address, but I found this in the 1929 city directory

The optometrist at left is 6325 and the tattoo place is 6517, which places Henry's on the site of the Vine Theater.

I just found an earlier post by NoirCityDame that has a great photograph of the exterior of Henry's.

NoirCityDame adds
" The former Henry's building seems to have been completely rebuilt (by S. Charles Lee) into a theater,
and opened as the Admiral Theater (called the Vine in more recent days) in May 1940. "
