In 1938, James Dunn and Edward Parsons combined their last names and opened Du-par’s at the Farmers Market. The restaurant grew, and now has branches in Las Vegas, Oxnard, San Diego, Studio City and Bethesda, Md. It was purchased in 2004 by W.W. “Biff” Naylor, whose father founded the first Tiny’s Waffle Shop in Fresno in the ‘20s.

Du-par’s hotcakes haven’t changed since 1938. The secret recipe is locked away in the Farmers Market safe. Du-par’s also squeezes fresh orange juices, hand peels and cuts potatoes for hash browns, and makes fresh pies, breads and pastries daily.

The Farmers Market location, completely renovated in 2007, has fully-restored 1930s décor, along with new outdoor seating and patio facilities.
