If you go on a Sunday morning, don’t let the long line scare you. They move along pretty steadily. And the wait is definitely worth it. The food here does not disappoint. The Apple pancake will add to your wait time - but it is...More

They have excellent breakfast dish: my favorite is the crab egg benedict with buckwheat pancakes and my wife's is baked omelette (mostly vegetarian). It's a litle pricy and its wating line is usually unebarable during weekend mornings.

Walker Brothers never fails to deliver freshest ingredients, great coffee, good service. Love that apple pancake. Get it with half sugar--it's sweet enough. My favorite is Dutch baby with strawberries and bananas.

Great food and service! Have to try the Apple Pancake! Everything is good. The fresh squeezed orange juice, thick cut bacon, pancakes and eggs are all fantastic.

We eat here once a month. Swedish pancakes are the best! Pretty good coffee too. It's impossible to get in Sunday mid-day, so plan to stop by for dinner any weeknight. It's VERY kid friendly...something for everyone on the menu.
