“you know I used to like this place”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

I am now overwhelmed with the pretentiousness and snotty wait staff...if you want to be Lou Mitchell's you have a lot to learn about making breakfast classics. Overall it is average but overpriced. The creamer for the coffee was curdled and they acted like replacing it was asking for gold. The syrup is not real maple syrup and the orange juice was not FRESH squeezed...oh it was squeezed there sometime that week...so either they are lazy and stored the juice or got some old sour oranges...sorry but take breakfast VERY seriously...

Reviewed December 14, 2012

Great breakfast, lunch or even dinner neighborhood restaurant. Prices are reasonable, great wait staff and food is consistently good. Specialty is the apple pancake. They now have frozen ones available to take home.
Great place to meet friends since seating is comfortable and private.

“Pancakes and breakfast all day!”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

We have been Walker Bros. fans for 30 years. The Wilmette location was must do when we were home for college or had friends visiting. While they are known for their gigantic apple pancakes and dutch babies, I am a fan of their incredible banana pancakes. Served with a warm cointreau syrup, they are hard to beat. My kids love their spinach crepes served with a side of potato pancakes. Standard egg dishes are available as are huge omelets, but honestly we have never eaten anything but pancakes and lots of them!

“Walker Bros. just how many are there?”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Pancakes and eggs like Mom would make. Especially liked the crispy bacon; great service and really great coffee - what else do you need?
