Patys Toluca Lake
By Jerry Yomam
Patys has been a landmark in Toluca Lake since 1960. In 2011 Los Angeles Magazine voted Patys “Best Retro Diner,” a distinction which the owners George & Astrid Metsos were honored to win. They have a menu with a wide variety for everyone’s cravings. For breakfast they make their pancakes from scratch daily and offer them with many different toppings. Or try their thick Belgium waffles, special French Toast, or one of their Original Scrabbles. They also have a low carb high protein Fitness Menu, consisting of dishes made with egg whites, brown rice, and some vegetarian dishes.
For lunch, they serve one of the best hamburgers anywhere as their meat is ground special for them. Their Tuna is some of the best in town and they serve real fresh turkey on their sandwiches.
Now for dinner, they serve their very popular broasted chicken, steakhouse quality steaks, a great Chicken Marsala, and many other dinner items to choose from, including pasta dishes and fresh seafood. By the way, all of their soups — like chicken noodle — and sauces are made from scratch daily.
When you stop in, check out the amazing layered cakes made in their kitchen every day in the display case; enjoy some great coffee or a cappuccino with it. So stop in and enjoy some great food, maybe on one of the outdoor patios, and keep your eyes open because you never know what celebrity sighting you might have!
As we enter the Holiday season, Patys will be open Thanksgiving Day from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Gift cards are available as well.
Patys is located at 10001 Riverside Dr. in Toluca Lake. For more information, call (818) 761-0041 or visit Patys online at PatysRestaurant.com.
