January 27, 2023
The ideal spot for morning meals, Walker Brothers doesn’t just flip the perfect pancake. If you ever find yourself looking for a to-die-for spot for a family breakfast or large gathering, Walker Brothers Pancake House is the place for you! Located on the border of Evanston and Wilmette on Green Bay sits a classic family-friendly breakfast restaurant.
Serving breakfast since 1960, Walker Bros’ has been open for almost 63 years! While the building is located on one of Evanston’s busiest streets, the restaurant manages to keep a warm and cozy atmosphere with stained glass light fixtures and comfy booths arranged with wooden tables. The inviting ambiance attracts many residents of both Evanston and Wilmette and has been chosen as a favorite by many ETHS students.
Sophomore Serena Jones chose this Walker Bro’s as her favorite because of “its close proximity.”
“I like having breakfast with my family there because of their welcoming environment,” senior Stella Ward adds. Walker Bro’s is a clear winner when it comes to location and atmosphere.
It’s safe to say Walker Bros’ has mastered the art of flipping pancakes, butpancakes aren’t the only star items on the menu. Walker Bros’ offers a wide range of delicious dishes from pancakes to waffles, french toast, omelets and breakfast meats.
Many students have voted the Apple Pancakes as their go-to order, however, senior Amanda Nelson says, “My favorite thing to order are the hash browns”. So whether it is a savory or sweet breakfast dish you are craving, Walker Bros’ has you covered.
Service also plays a big role in its overall rating. Walker Bros’ service receives ratings that are off the charts. No one likes waiting hours for their food to come. Thankfully, the servers there get the job done—the food arrives fast and hot!
Well, what makes their service great? Junior Elise Pollack explains, “My food always comes pretty quick, I never have to wait much longer than 15-20 minutes.”
As sophomore Esther Mueller says, “it is the best breakfast place in the area.”
