In your best Homer Simpson voice...mmm bacon. That's better. Now, Check your anger at the door and pack your patience. Yes yes yes. The wait can be 20 minutes on a weekend. Yes this parking lot can be a crap show. Yes they make you wait in a corral line like Disneyland cows. Butt......if you make or through this "breakfast... More

Drove by and decided to stop in. I ordered the Apple Cinnamon pancakes while my colleague ordered the Blue Crab Eggs Benedict. These were some of the best pancakes I have ever eaten! The eggs benedict was very good as well but definitely a sinful delight!

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

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.
