Wilmette, IL: Apple pancake heaven
How far would we go for a pancake? That's easy: we'd go as far as Chicago in the winter—provided we could end up at one of the Walker Bros. locations throughout that metro area.
You can get regular pancakes here, and French toast, and omelettes, and probably other stuff, too. Don't do that. What you want is their big, puffy apple pancake, the house specialty, topped with cinnamon and sugar glaze.
They've been serving them up at the original Wilmette location since 1960 and we've had our share over the years. We hope to have more, soon.
