Four of us all had great meals. The wife had peach pancakes, I had an egg scramble with bacon, cheese, and crispy potatoes. The omelets are too big to eat. It's too much food, but it is so good you'll want to fit it in.

The food is phenomenal! Six adults ordered 5 breakfasts and still had food left over. The portions are large. If you order the Apple Pancake, the cook rings a bell before the waitress delivers it. I'll eat her again if I ever visit Walla Walla!

My 5 stars for this review is for the owner Rachel. My husband and I visited this cafe while in Walla Walla and our "food experience" was not the greatest. When I wrote a review about this Rachel immediately responded and wanted to know more about our meal, what time of day we were there, what we had, etc. I... More

The Maple Counter Cafe adds another venue for great breakfasts in Walla Walla and features some items---like Swedish Pancakes---not found at the other places. The service was quick and efficient, the food excellently prepared, the servings more than ample, and your coffee cup constantly refilled. It's location is another bonus as one can easily walk from any downtown hotel. Reservations... More

We were here on a Wednesday morning, with no wait for a table. Took us a while to choose what to order, everything looked good. We each ordered the bacon/swiss cheese omelet with homemade potatoes ($12). It was one of the best breakfasts we have ever eaten. And, huge portions, enough to take some home and have for breakfast the... More

The Maple Counter was recommended to us as a good option for breakfast. However, we ended up getting take out lunch one day. It did not seem like take out was a good choice from there (but we wanted to take lunch with us to one of the wineries). While the salad my husband ordered was tasty, no napkins or... More

Dear Rachmishon, Thank you for your review, I apologize that utensils and napkins were not included with your to-go order! That certainly is not protocol. They must have gotten forgotten on accident...this is a great reminder for our staff, and should not happen again. Please try us for breakfast or lunch here in the restaurant. To-go food is not a...

We waited 20 minutes for a table on a weekend morning, but it was totally worth it. The food and drinks are great. Put that with the friendly, attentive service and we've got a real winner!

Lots of choices, huge servings unless you ask for small. "Delicious" is the word for everything I've eaten here. Now if they would just open for supper.

Our family had lunch here a couple of weeks ago during a visit to Walla Walla. When we were being led to our table I nearly fell backwards when I saw the size of the burgers, with a huge stack of waffle fries alongside. My daughter and I shared one between us, and we still barely had room for dessert.... More

This is our Walla Walla favorite for breakfast, the portions are huge, the food is delicious, the atmosphere is quaint, value is excellent! The don't take reservations, so plan on a half an hour wait. It is a noisy restaurant when it is busy, which is most of the time, if you want a quiet meal where you can chat,... More
