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
