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

I enjoy every meal served there, plus the world's largest cinnamon roles make great breakfast birthday cakes if you just add a few candles. The atmosphere is like a time machine with old fashioned friendly service and great food reminiscent of my childhood with farm fresh eggs and thick sliced tasty bacon and so many hearty family style portions, with...

What else is there to say? Fun food, funky building, eclectic country decor. Old School house repurposed and an antique store next door. Just down the street is a nursery that you can get lost in as you wander thru the tropical plants. You gotta come for a visit and do the trio, Eats, tiques, and plants.

Don't get there often but it never disappoints. Seven of us met there today for breakfast...appreciated that they would do a reservation for six or more. Had a great table and very pleasant waitstaff. Enjoyed good food but most of us took some of our meal home...generous portions for those with big appetites. Of course we started with sharing a...

Maltby Cafe is open for breakfast and lunch.Their food is a cut above everywhere else due to all their special touches. Breakfast is my favorite meal to eat there. They have many specialties and will adjust them to my needs. Every meal I've eaten there has been wonderful. Their only downfalls are that they are not handicap accessible since they... More

There is generally a wait if you are not an early bird, but it is part of the fun! They move the lines very effiiciently, and we just chat and look... More

Our favorite place for breakfast. A fun cozy atmosphere, great service, and absolutely delicious food. On Saturday morning be sure to get there before 8:00 or you'll have a 30 minute wait in line for a table. And yes, people wait because the food is that good. Huge portions provide extra for another yummy meal at home. The red potatoes... More

Fun little spot in Maltby and our favorite for brunch! There's always a bit of a wait but it's well worth it. Lovely homestyle breakfast at its best!
