Was recommended by staff at the Westin Downtown (great hotel and location BTW) as one of the best places in San Diego for breakfast and it did not disappoint. It was within walking distance from the Westin, which made it nice. While there was a...line, we were seated fast. They followed all COVID 19 protocol and the service was fantastic. Never had an empty cup of coffee. My wife and I enjoyed the Venice Benedict and it was outstanding. We split a side order of their famous buttermilk pancakes and they were as delicious as advertised. If you're staying or living in downtown San Diego and haven't tried Richard Walker's Pancake House, I highly recommend you do. People who give this place a bad recommendation are crazy!More

Last day in downtown San Diego and was feeling some good comfort food for brunch. Say no more when you’re in the Gaslamp district. Ron took great care of us as we each got an oven baked omelette which was to die for. Side of...pancakes or toast and we were in. Great service here and the food is great portions. I highly recommend the mushroom omelette which is a side mushroom sauce you can drench over your plate.More

Slow service, overpriced menu. I watched a couple walk out after waiting for service ...small portions that includes tea cup size coffee....food was just ok. We won't be back.

We arrived at about 9:30 on a Monday, no wait. My wife had a perfect coffee with real cream, she loves it there. I had the baked pecan pancake and she had the children's silver dollar pancakes and a side of sausage. Since she has...gastric bypass surgery, she just can't eat much. The food was excellent, service was too. I overheard someone at another table order an apple pancake w/ pecans because he couldn't decide which baked pancake to get. I might try that next time. Iced tea was good.More

The food was amazing. They have your typical favorites but they are just prepared a little different than usual. Nothing crazy, but very stimulating to the eye, the taste buds and the stomach. And Richard Walker seated us himself. He's friendly and easy going. What...a delightful experience. We hope to go back this week before we head back home.More

Came here for breakfast. The Danish Harvest was a very unique dish. Id recommend! It tastes like a potato pancake base with roasted vegetables and a slice of cheese. Almost like a quiché without being so egg based. Hashbrowns were great, I asked to cook...them a little more and they did. The coffee did go cold.. the coffee cups dont seem to hold heat well. Service was great. This was recent to the pandemic so they were good about social distancing, spacing people, sanitation, etc.More

The queue is definitely worth the wait (about 20mins). Here, it is recommanded to try the baked pancakes which are enormous!!! I also loved the french eggs benedict (mushroom and spinach)! We couldn’t finish everything and they provided us with boxes to go !More

You will have to wait, but it's worth it. Unbelievable pancakes, and waffles. Once you are seated, the service is fast and friendly.
