This is a fantastic place to get breakfast but come on a Sunday or during a holiday and expect a long wait. The food is delicious and worth the wait though. Also, the prices are kind of high but that's to be expected for many reasons.

I love there eggs, best bacon, and pancakes. I would say that the bacon is by far the best I ever had at any restaurant. Orange Juice is fresh and extremely good! Eggs are fresh and I also get hash browns that come with onion if you like. For breakfast it is more expensive than most, but it will be... More

If you're looking for quality breakfast food with amazing coffee, this is the place! The food here is wonderful. The ingredients are fresh and there are a wide variety of options. My personal favorite is the French Toast. It is always cooked perfectly and is buttery. We have been going here for a while and have never had a bad... More

Whenever I visit friends in Chicago, we always go to Walker Bros for breakfast. The selection is fantastic and everything seems to be delicious. Fresh ingredients and massive portions, the service is friendly and I've never had to wait longer than about 2 mins for a table. Thoroughly recommend if you are in the area.

Fresh ingredients, unbelievable variety, breakfast just does't get any better. I love the 49 ers, or the potato pancakes. Their apple pancake is the best, without the extra wait. Sometimes the line can be long, but usually moves quickly.

I've been to this restaurant A handful of times over the past couple of years. The pancakes are consistently good… Fluffy and without the need for any syrup. I especially like the banana pancakes. My only concern about this restaurant is that there is always, always a 15 to 20 minute wait. I guess that means it's good, but sometimes... More
