1964 Armet & Davis Denny's in Glendale

There was a fantastic 1964 Armet & Davis Denny's in Glendale at 6720 San Fernando Road that has recently undergone some pretty major remodeling. Does anybody have recent photos of this store which was once a Biff's and then Sam's Cafe and most recently Starlite Cafe or Stardust Cafe? We need the most recent version. It's in the parking lot of the Glen Capri motel. Thanks a lot. This would really help the modcom. Thank you.

what a strange case of life imitating art... there was an operator trying to open the stardust cafe there -- even hired a very prominent designer to restore the place to it's googie glory - unfortunately that didn't happen, but I guess they were inspired by the movie's choices?

We're meeting with the City, so please let me or Chris know if you have any photos! Thanks!

The owners have started to rebuild the character defining features they demolished without a proper permit. The roofline is a boomerang again!

Here you go - I have a ton more if you need them, but these were handy:

It's the 'Waffle Hut', from "The Ladykillers"...

I created this animated gif from photos of the destruction of the Agoura Hills sign a while back....

Now, how sad is that image?

I almost forgot how incredible that interior was... :cry:

Here's how the place looked a few weeks ago after the carnage began. It's starting to look much better now.

Oh come on... That looks terrible compared to what it was! That was as restorable as the one on Lankershim in North Hollywood....

Too late now.

Maybe I didn't make it clear enough that the 'stardust' pictures are a few weeks ago and now (with modcom intervention) they are trying to rebuild the exterior features they obliterated. Not a perfect solution, but at least it's easier on the eyes than the sliced and diced version...

Still - where's the rock walls? Has the interior been gutted? Are they going to accurately reproduce the roof line, or just kinda-sorta like those pictures imply...

I'm glad ModCom got involved and talked them into fixing it as much as they would, but nothing replaces the original once it is demolished.

I guess we're lucky the whole thing isn't a parking lot now, though...

They are reproducing the flagstone - I don't know how accurately -- and the roofline is being reproduced from the original Armet & Davis blueprints, in a deal modcom brokered. Unfortunately, the interior is completely gone and it will not be coming back :cry: but we worked really hard to get this far and I wish success to Patrick's Cafe. I got a nice thank you call from them recently.

Patrick's Cafe is open. Y'all should go and take a look at it. Maybe stop in for a bite. Tell us what you think of the exterior restoration.

In the meantime, check out this model on eBay.

Yes, it was closed for many years and was used for filming. Now it has reopened as a restaurant again.

Be sure to stop in and patronize Patrick's! They've been extremely cooperative with us and Chris and I want them to be successful at this location!

From our friends at the Glendale Historical Society:

... owner of Patrick's Cafe asked me to extend an
invitation to both of you for the official GRAND OPENING AND RIBBON
CUTTING CEREMONY for Patricks Cafe

Date: Friday Sept 29th from 5 pm - 9pm (Ribbon cutting is 7 pm)

He indicates they are also celebrating the "restoration of the Googie
style cafe". It would be great if you can join me there...

Reminds me of the Holiday Bowl, at least vaguely.

That's very refreshing to finally read about some renovation of a modern building :D ***

I'm also happy to report that the food is excellent. They make one of the best burgers in town.
