I have NEVER been disappointed at Walker Bros., and this was no exception. The food was wonderful and the coffee and service, excellent. The atmosphere is not as 'cool' as in Wilmette or Highland Park, but overall it is the same experience. On the North Shore, this is not a breakfast place to be missed and I am not even... More

this restaurant has been around for decades but still seems fresh to new generations of diners. There are no bad choices here from omelettes to waffles the famous apple pancake. Its all good. Side orders of bacon, sausage and hash browns are well worth the cash and calories. The fresh orange juice is excellent. Beware of weekend crowds. There can... More

Walker Brothers always has a wait and the Dutch Apple Pancakes are the best. They also have a large selection of items for breakfast and lunch.

Had continental special which Includes two eggs, hash browns choice of pancakes or toast . Also included choice of juice. We went at lunch time, busy, Service was excellent ! Food was very good . Potato pancakes are some of the best I've ever had. What's not to like to have breakfast anytime. Yummy!

Walker Brothers is a wonderful breakfast and once you arrive to ANY location, you will realize that everyone loves to eat there. There is ALWAYS a line at every location throughout the day. Need I say more? It's delicious and they use the freshest ingredients. Check it out....Great for the entire family!

We have been going here for years and it always will be one of our favorites. The crispy crunchy French toast is one of the best things to get!

We returned here after 2 years with a party of 5. As usual on a Sunday morning the crowd to get in was out the door. We all enjoyed our breakfast selections but the service had deteriorated since our last visit. 2 of the breakfasts were delivered but we had to wait several minutes for the remaining 3 to arrive....

Another of my must stop places in Chicago. I had the French toast with a side of bacon. Everything was fantastic. Service was solid, and friendly. Others at my table had the crepes - looked good, but the star of the show was an order of hash browns. OH MY! I loved my French toast, but wish I had gotten... More
