Biff Naylor, son of the legendary Tiny Naylor of the eponymous L.A. coffee shop, loved the pancakes at Du-par’s in the Farmers Market in West Hollywood so much that he bought the company. I concur. In his first foray outside California, at the Golden Gate hotel-casino downtown, he has given us the best pancakes in the city: the sourdough tang, a perfect fluffy texture and a rich taste from their clarified butter bath. There is also amazing corned beef hash, perfect cinnamon rolls baked on premises, and killer pies—about 20, with that Crisco/butter crust that your mother used to make. The bacon and eggs, if you insist, also pass muster. In fact, every breakfast tastes better here, thanks in part to the 1930s diner atmosphere.
