It doesn't matter what you order--the food is always good and fresh. The huevos rancheros are so yummy, and the home made breads are amazing. Pancakes are huge, bacon is crunchy. Coffee is great. Service is prompt and efficient. Fun to see what local artist is being featured on the walls. Cool joint.

Good food, good prices, terrible espresso. Great with kids, our kid had a meltdown and they were like "hey they're pouring concrete outside." Moved to outside table, kid loved watching the big concrete mixer and the guys working it. Overall great experience.

First time visitors and quite pleased. Had the veggie sloppy joe and three cheese grilled sandwiches......very good. Service was attentive and good was out quickly. Located in a busy strip mall but worth the parking wait. Seating is ample inside and out with garage style doors allowing ample fresh air throughout the eatery. Will back.

Good breakfast joint. Got us in pretty quickly even though it is clearly a popular breakfast option. You can order your coffee while you wait which is always nice. Good food- quiche and specials look like they change daily. Definitely did not leave hungry as my omelette came with my choice of 2 sides. I opted for the blueberry corn... More

First time at walnut cafe. It was wonderful. The food was creative and delicious. The staff was friendly and happy which says a lot about the company. We had the waffles of the day and we were totally satisfied. Great breakfast , brunch, and lunch spot. Looking forward to our next visit.

Been here many times. Omelette: delicious; breakfast potatoes: delicious; pies: oh my they are the best! Decadent coffee drinks: delicious. You get the point; never had a bad meal here. Main complaint is that sometimes it can get busy and have a longish wait.
