This location has been a local treasure for decades, and the quality never seems to falter. Good coffee with real cream, generous amounts of real whipped butter and preserves to accompany the toast and pancakes and good portion size help to justify the premium prices...More

Was not impressed. Great ambiance but food not worth the Premium price. Coffee expensive.. Food was not anything out- of this world. Not a place to run back to. Too many other restaurants more fairly priced and have higher quality dishes.

Free parking lot. Stairs or ramp to get in. Gorgeous inside features lots of wood, stained glass, 1930's and Victorian themed glass and art work. Tables and booths available. Large space. Clean. We visited mid evening, only two other tables were filled at the time....More

We actually drive 6 miles to Walker Bros. because it is the only place near us that seems to have pancakes that are not made from a fake mix full of artificial ingredients. I also pay an extra fee for their buckwheat pancake side when...More
