Excellent food, atmosphere and service. Endless coffee and the best omlettes anywhere. Buttermilk pancakes that melt in your mouth.

We ate brunch there one day my daughter goes to college in Walla Walla and it's one of her favorite breakfast places.

This is my go to restaurant in Walla Walla for breakfast or lunch. I have eaten here several dozen times, and I'm never disappointed. The Eggs Casey is so good it's hard to believe it's a real food. The french toast/buttermilk pancake/Berkeley Pancake Platter is my go to if I'm not as hungry. It comes with coffee, juice, bacon, eggs,... More

My husband and I recently visited this cozy spot for lunch on a cold day in January. We were tourists but everybody else appeared to be locals. He loved his Monte Cristo sandwich. My chef salad was huge and very fresh! Finished with a white chocolate raspberry mocha that was amazing! Excellent service. Kid friendly. Cute merchandise for sale too.

Go early to get a seat at breakfast. And portions are, uh, substantial. We love to split the Monte Cristo and home fries. Otherwise, you might want to invite your cardiologist as a table mate.

Went for breakfast today and was so very disappointed. Had to return my meal twice because the meal was cold. Can understand one time, but twice? Will be a long time before I return.

Hi Tami, I am so sorry to hear about your experience. I checked in with your server, and was happy to hear that both your Skillet entree and coffee were taken care of and that you did not have to pay for your meal. I hope you will give us another chance in the future. -Kory Nagler, owner More

Stopped for lunch, Monday, was told breakfast only. OK. Breakfast was very good. Excellent service. They seem to push pancakes only on most options. I had Eggs Benedict which gave a choice. I had potatoes. Very good. Bloody mary very good but I read $8 on menu. Was $9 on bill.

Thank you for your review, we are glad to hear you enjoyed your meal and service. I apologize about the confusion on your Bloody Mary pricing. The menu states $9, though our Screwdrivers and Greyhounds are listed as $8, so that may have been the confusion. We hope to see you back here again soon, thank you and Happy New... More

Maple Counter has been a breakfast staple for some time in Walla Walla and deservedly so. It was innovative, clean and and offered great coffee and chique local in its breakfast offerings with good portions and high prices. Unfortunately, it has become a tired place reflecting erosion which takes place in typical settings without lack of solid competition. My most... More

One plate here and you will feel heavy all day. The first time I tried it, I asked for a regular dish and I felt kind of sick, not because the food was bad at all, it was because it's really carb loaded; the pancakes are heavy, the potatoes really greasy. The second time, I asked for the senior menu... More
