Great Weekend Brunch

This is a family friendly restaurant with great food. I've only been there for Saturday or Sunday brunch. It is always crowded. The restaurant is down a flight of stairs, may be difficult to get to if you have mobility issues. I don't know how they handle wheelchairs.

The food here is over the top wonderful - there is WAY too much food but it is absolutely awesome! Prices are very reasonable and the only issue I would have is that it is very popular and no matter what time you get there - there will be a wait. They are, however, very efficient and once you get... More

One of the BEST, most consistent places to eat. Breakfast is by far the best. Go early! You can be waiting a long time later in the day. Service - excellent. Ambiance - oh yeah! Food - the best! If you are visiting Woodinville, Monroe, Snohomish, Bothell - heck, Kirkland, Bellevue or Seattle - this is one of the best... More

There is a reason USA Today lists it in their Top 5 Nationally. Basement of a old farmhouse and don't go if you're in a hurry. Line can be hours long during peak times

Great menu and wonderful service. The pizza is excellent. Pasta dishes are very well prepared. The Chop Salad is fresh and they use lots of different ingredients. The bar area is small but they recently expanded the dining area. In the summer, you can eat outside as well.

After hearing about the fabulous breakfasts at the Maltby Café, I finally visited there with friends. It takes 40 minutes from Seattle to reach what I would call "out in the sticks." I knew it was popular, but was surprised that people were waiting to be seated and in line to put their name on the list. After a half... More

After receiving many independent glowing recommendations of Maltby Café from locals across all demographics, we lucked out with immediate seating around 2pm on a weekday. Chris provided enthusiastic and knowledgeable service, and the necessary to - go boxes when we couldn't resist ordering many menu items and taking an obligatory cinnamon roll to go as well. Wow ... EVERYTHING was... More

I've been to the Maltby Cafe numerous times over a decade, and always have the same thing to say: great food, perfect service, great value. Coming here is a matter of timing: hitting it just as a bunch of tables empty out. It's very popular, so it gets crowded. Just be patient; it's worth the wait. This time we had... More

We arrived at about 8:30 AM and had to wait....about 20 seconds. The restaurant was crowded and a bit noisy...as a popular restaurant should be. Our waitress as prompt and friendly, the plates were large and filled with delicious food. 2 of the 4 of us couldn't clean our plates and our server quickly provided boxes so we could take... More
