Long lines (especially Sunday brunch) tell you just how good this place is. Happily, they're pretty good at managing the crowds, so the waits aren't terrible. On the rare occasions when I've been able to resist the fabulous apple pancakes, I've found the Dutch Baby pancakes and their omelettes are also really good.

A glenview staple. Been good for a long time and I don't see that changing. Despite lines on weekends the staff communicates well and treats people with respect. All of the pancakes are outstanding. The non breakfast foods are a little hit or miss. But why go if you don't want pancakes?

Our party consisted of 10 diners the day after Christmas in the afternoon. We enjoyed a variety of traditional favorites. I had the potatoes pancakes with apple sauce ham side and hot tea. It was perfect. I did get a chance to taste across the table the Apple cinnamon pancake, enough for 3. Bacon is thick and tasty. Priced very... More

This is a nice place to have a quiet breakfast with a grandson. We had a very tasty breakfast of chocolate crepes. The portion was just right considering the fact that we are both a watch your carb intake!Yummy!

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!

During my college years I worked as a member of the kitchen staff during the summers. Actually, I worked at the Waukegan Road restaurant on the first day that it opened. Of course, I gained intimate knowledge of the menu and ingredients during my time on the staff - and so my expectations for quality are very high for this... More

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
