Description: Since 1948, the Walker family name has become synonymous with quality family dining. The family has since perfected its reputation for outstanding gourmet pancakes and breakfasts. We offer a large variety of gourmet breakfast and lunch items, including pancakes, crepes, waffles, omelettes, Belgian waffles, and more! Richard Walker’s starts with the finest blend of whole Prime Roasted Coffee beans sourced from Central America with all its sealed-in flavor intact. Then, we ground just enough for each pot of coffee – one pot at a time. That rich, full-bodied flavor and aroma is retained in the freshly ground coffee itself. From there, it’s only a matter of a minute from the whole bean to a cup of the best coffee you have ever tasted.

One block from the Marriott and the Hyatt, this unassuming breakfast cafe serves up the best omelettes, pancakes and waffles I've had in a long time. There may be a line to get in, but it is worth the wait.

It's really good. Great service, great food. The only problem is that you need to wait in line because it's always busy.

We went with high expectations and they were exceeded. The service, the restaurant and the food were all perfect.
We wanted to go back a second time, but it was too busy.
Definitely a place to revisit on future trips. The coffee was perfect.

It just was not all that it was cracked up to be. Lines out the door (for breakfast?) should have meant I was getting an amazing dining experience - but was let down by how ordinary it was.

This is a breakfast restaurant with very limited lunch selections. I had one of the best omelets I have ever eaten; I don't know how they got it so fluffy. The menu has a large selection from the griddle and the items passing by looked yummy. There was a line to get in, but the wait was not long. The biggest drawback and reason for the average atmosphere rating was that there was no time to linger. As soon as we were done eating our meal the plates were wisked away and the wait staff sort of hovered. We got the distinct impression that we should leave. Even with that I would go back to try something new.
