Richard Walker’s Pancake House, a San Diego institution originating from three generations of restaurateurs in the Walker lineage, announces the opening of a third San Diego County location in Carlsbad, California. Situated in the middle of the new Square at Bressi Ranch, the 1,700 square-foot eatery also includes a spacious and pet-friendly outdoor dining space.

We can’t wait to serve our new neighbors and many other guests from the region.”

The local breakfast empire, with an additional two locations in Illinois, is entirely family-owned, family-operated and family-funded by Richard Walker Sr. and Richard Walker Jr., both San Diego residents.

Richard Walker’s Pancake House serves award-winning, fresh and hearty breakfast and lunch items made from-scratch daily. Gourmet oven-baked pancakes, omelettes, crepes and waffles are on feature. Highlights include silky, sumptuous Fresh French Strawberry Crepes; the famous Baked Apple Pancake with fresh Granny Smith apples; the delicious strawberry waffle and piping hot souffle-style baked omelettes.
