Los Angeles Cameo: 'Parks and Recreation' Turns Mundane L.A. Into Pawnee

NBC's "Parks and Recreation" does a great job of using L.A., Burbank, Glendale and Pasadena locations to double as fictional Pawnee, Indiana. We've pointed out in the past how Pasadena's City Hall plays Pawnee's government seat on the show; other past locales include downtown's Clifton's Cafeteria and Glendale's Motel Glen Capri. (Above, Burbank's Providence St. Joseph hospital is made into "Pawnee St. Joseph" for the show.)

But here are two more recent establishing shots, from last week's excellent "Flu" episode. Can you identify them?

On the show, here's a coffee shop where Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) meets with Pawnee local business owners -- while dining on an unending supply of waffles.

An L.A.-area big box store is superimposed with the fictional business name "Spa-wnee." Any idea where this is in real life?

The exterior of JJ's Diner is actually the Landmark Diner in Atlanta, Georgia.

Check out the Street View of the map.
