“Memorable”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Walker Bros. in Highland Park is my favorite location so far, it is a lovely place with a fun atmosphere. The place is usually packed and there are a lot of families. The food is wonderful, the crab egg benedict is amazing, the German pancakes is ginormous (way too big for 1 person), its a great one to split with 2-3 people. The apple pancake is a sugar comma waiting to happen. Overall this is a fun family spot, great food and always great service.

“Best Breakfast in Highland Park”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

This is my favorite place to have breakfast/brunch in Highland Park. The omelets are cooked in a broiler and are very large and great. The Apple and Dutch Baby are worth the trip alone. Salads are also very good.

“signature dish -- apple pancake”
Reviewed 21 December 2013

I can scramble a pretty good egg and flip a pretty good pancake at home, so when we go to Walker Brothers, I order the dish that I can't re-create in my kitchen -- the famous apple pancake. We've been eating at their various locations for decades, and the food is worth the wait. The coffee is excellent and arrives quickly.
