I've been eating in this restaurant (in it's first location) for 55 years. I have always had the best food. The pancakes are not gooey or too sweet. Everything they serve is top quality. The eggs and omlettes are also very tasty

You can get brunch here any day of the week, and it's always a delight. The apple pancake is special for sweet lovers, and the danish garden pancake is special for savory lovers.

The food is very good. The restaurant offers mainly breakfast items but if you go there later in the day, you could get a sandwich or a salad. Each month the restaurant offers one dish with a 25%.

Walker Bros has been a staple in our family forever. The food is always perfect the coffee is always hot and the refills come often. The quality is AAA+. German pancakes, 49er pancakes, Apple pancakes are our families favorites but you can never go wrong. Hash browns with jalapeños and cheese and bacon to die for. (The basted eggs and... More
