Had breakfast yet? Pancakes, more at 1938 prices at Du-Par’s restaurant

  • Client: (The Original Farmers Market)

    Today only, Du-Par’s at Los Angeles’ original Farmers Market will offer a few classic menu items, including hamburgers and pancakes, at 1938 prices.

    Coffee is a nickel and hamburgers 25 cents as part of the promotion to celebrate the restaurant’s 75th birthday.

    The Farmers Market Du-Par’s was the first to open in the L.A.-based chain, named for founders James Dune and Edward Parsons. The chain changed hands in 2004, and the Farmers Market location was closed for two years for renovations.

    When it reopened, the chain noted that the pancake recipe was still 1938 vintage. Fittingly, buttermilk pancakes also will be on sale today.

    A Du-Par’s worker on Wednesday morning listed what’s on the 1938 price menu at the original Farmers Market location, 6333 W. 3rd St. (at Fairfax):

    Coffee — 5 cents
    Hamburger — 25 cents
    Buttermilk pancakes — 25 cents
    Chicken pot pie — 35 cents
    Steak pot pie — 40 cents
