Probably the most beautiful of all the Walker Bros.locations. There is something here for everyone from toddlers to oldsters. The best coffee, attentive servers,a full menu of breakfast delights;waffles w/fruit and whipped cream,omelets,thick bacon,fresh bagels,corn beef hash and wonderful eggs. You'll love it all.

I did take Walker Brothers Pancake House out of the rotation for a while (for really disappointing service), but the sunny atrium, apple pancake, and house blend coffee lured me back. Their signature apple pancake is everything wonderful you've heard about it, but here's a...More

We came in because this was the closest breakfast place to our car's last race exchange for the Ragnar Relay. Later I was talking to a friend who grew up in this neighborhood and he said it is a classic breakfast spot for the locals....More
