Went there with high expectations due to fellow tripadvisor follower's comments. I value the opinions of those of us who post, so I wonder if my experience was due to the popularity of this cafe. The wait time was very long. In fact, the entry area was difficult to get through (because so many were awaiting a table) coming in... More

Awesome breakfast menu, almost a must to add a cinnamon roll to the table for sharing purposes while waiting for your breakfast entries. Always great service and never been disappointed with our breakfast!

Great food, staff and pricing. Very large servings and you will not leave hungry. The cinnamon rolls are to die for.

On special days, or Sundays, be prepared to wait in a line... Busy place, and for a good reason.. Food is excellent and always in large quantities.. Customer service is supurb.

Great omelettes and luncheon salads, with a hefty price. It is always noisy, with tables very close to each other. That adds to the fun, except when you'd like some private conversation. Be careful when you order an omelette that is strictly meat-filled: it will be LOADED with bacon, sausage, or ham! The ones with a variety of veggies are... More

Returned after a long absence and regret to say Maltby Cafe did not live up to our fond memory of the place. Portions were large, but flavors were lacking and prices were a bit high (e.g. $15 or so for most of the breakfast plates). The hollandaise sauce on the eggs benedict was bland. The pancakes were not even as... More

This restaurant is an experience! From the time they opened decades ago the formula has been great big portions of great tasting food! We shared a chili burger and left stuffed and happy with the flavors and the preparation. There are so many options you would spend a year eating your way through the menu. Highly recommended!

The best Cinnabon I ever had in my life made to order. The waiting in the cafe goes to 45 minutes in the weekends. The best service you'll ever had. Affordable price and delicious food. Definitely the best place to have your breakfast

Everyone raves about this place and it's been years since we've been there. Always a long line and a good 25 minute wait time even when we went during the week. I was glad that we were able to walk downstairs down the narrow steps, this would not be a place for handicapped people to eat. The food was good.
