outstanding pancakes, bad food, great pie, mediocre service, rude long lines, love generous portions, not perfectly good breakfast
Price!!. Great Customer Service but the price was terrible. We ordered a small stack of pancakes and a cob salad with 2 cokes. The price came out to 34 $. I think I was ripped off.
All-day breakfasts steal the spotlight at L.A.'s beloved Midwest-style coffee shop..
Families, teens and low-key industry types fill the Naugahyde booths and belly up to vintage counters at this old-school favorite. Du-Par's is famous for soul-nourishing comfort food: Meat loaf and meat pies, tuna salad and gravy-slathered open-faced sandwiches. But the breakfast fare, available all day, is the biggest hit: Golden brown, thick French toast, fluffy American-cheese omelettes, and well-done hash browns. Crisp-around-the-edges hot cakes topped with ice cream leads a list of desserts that include homemade cheese cake.
Great Diner, Great Breakfasts, Outstanding Pancakes!. Du-par's is the late night diner of choice for me and my circle of friends. I normally will get the corned beef hash breakfast or a short stack of pancakes. I had the strawberry ice cream once and it just did not taste good but you don't come to Du-par's for ice cream. The breakfasts, pancakes, sandwiches and soups are safe bets.
Best Pancakes Ever. Very busy for breakfast on the weekends, but it's worth the wait for those pancakes! It's too bad that they don't have a breakfast combo with the pancakes, you have to order them individually and add other items to it (ie eggs, sausage, bacon...) which can get expensive quickly. But don't be tempted to add too much because the pancakes are huge!
Classic diner food done decently. Du-par's in Studio City has the confident vibe of a place that knows you love it, and you'll keep coming back for more, no matter what. And in some ways, it deserves to feel that way. It's always busy and filled with diners who love its brand of all-American comfort food and generous portions of hearty breakfast fare. And I can't say anything bad about the place -- I had a perfectly good breakfast of eggs and bacon with pancakes there. Was it out of this world? No, but it was decent -- and in a world where you can't even count on a short-order cook understanding what the words 'over medium' means, you take what you can get. Would I go back? Sure -- but would I go out of my way to go there if I wasn't in the neighborhood, or had to work extra hard to get a parking space in that popular mini mall? No -- it was good, but not worth any extra early morning aggravation.
Best Pancakes in town!.
I've been going here since I was like 4 (30 years). Used to sit at the counter with my grandpa on Saturday's and have a short stack of pancakes with butter. I haven't had pancakes like these anywhere else. This place is the real thing too - even the servers have been there for like 100 years. Saturday mornings can be real busy. The coffee's better than average.
I don't really think the rest of the menu is anything special. But why would you care when the pancakes are so good!
Just The Pancakes. Pancakes must be ordered with "butter", they are to die for. Service could have been better, coffee was almost okay, over priced, didn't try the dessert, ham/bacon & eggs were nothing out of the ordinary, I mean, like how can anyone srew that up.
Just dont bother. The food was just okay. The service was awful. I waited 15 min for a refill of coffee. The menu was wrong on things, they "ran out' french toast on a saturday morning! And the prices were not worth the food! I will never go here again, unless I am starving. Don't Bother.
Sub-Par's. This down-home diner is true to it's reputation of midwestern classics and nostaglically comfortable scenery. However magnetic this may be, the determining factor remains at the quality of service. If you have time to kill waiting for the corrections to your dish, or just that your waiter/waitress is too busy flirting with her their own reflection in the fountain machine...by all means you may be pleasantly satisfied. If not, your intentions on a receiving a standard of service will be burned much like your three-egg omelet.
It's Trashy, Expect It. Du-Par's is a trashy diner with an LA attitude. The service is mediocre and the food isn't great but it will provide some comfort. Particularly on those "hungover" mornings when you need as much saturated fat as you can get. Set your expectations to low and you'll be satisfied.
