Cute little place (little being the operative word). The best local recipes for main courses and deserts and, of course......Greek Sauce! If you like mildly spicy Coney Island dogs, chili dogs, and the like I could not recommend this stuff higher! Plenty of other options, too, but this is their bread and butter. Have it on an Omelet!

My husband and I recently moved to Lawrence Park and this was our first time at the Dinor. Excellent food and terrific service! We are looking to make our breakfast dates there once a month and try all the great looking menu items!

While traveling by car from NH to Chicago this was a favorite stop along the way. I received a warm welcome by all as I entered. Service was prompt, lunch was delicious and the conversation interesting. I don't often splurge for pie but was glad that I did.

From the first step into the Lawrence Park Dinor we could see the attention to detail and caring attitude of the owners. My wife and I decided to visit the LPD after early mass all the way on the West side. LPD is located in East side close to local GE plant. The Dinor is like going back in time... More
