Die and go to Heaven after breakfast here!!

Fascinating decor, fun and attentive staff, and the most delicious breakfasts and coffees around. I'd be there weekly if I lived in Walla Walla!!

The omelets are fluffy and huge. We had 3 couples; each couple shared a different omelet. We were all satisfied. The omelet comes with 3 small pancakes or a choice of toast and potatoes. I would recommend choosing the sourdough toast with the potatoes. The potatoes were scrumptious and the toast was made from thick cut, fresh sourdough bread

My best friend took me here for brunch for my 19th birthday. It was both of our first time ever eating or visiting here. The food was yummy but the breakfast potatoes were super salty. The service was fantastic, decor is odd and confusing, the all wood furniture was beautiful. It's a nice place but rather on the speedy side.... More

Our family's favorite breakfast place. Perfect for large groups. Servers are super sweet and caring. Anything on the menu tastes fabulous. Don't be afraid the wait time. It is worth every second

The sign says gourmet breakfasts, and they really are. I always end up taking some home, but it is a treat. The staff are very friendly and the décor and atmosphere are reasons I return again and again.

I've now been here twice and both times have had to wait at least 20 minutes in a very crowded waiting area. The first time I was thinking this better be worth it. The second time I was more than happy to wait because I knew what we were waiting for. The facility is clean and welcoming and "homey". The... More

Because of a varied menu of fine food you sometimes have to wait to be seated. However, it's worth the wait. The first place I think of when going out for breakfast.

You can read a lot here about the great breakfasts (positive) and the lines and waits (negative). Here's my rationale for a 5-star rating and a few suggestions. Maple Counter scores high because the quality of the food is truly CONSISTENTLY good. The establishment is clean and very comfortable. The servers are knowledgeable, efficient and friendly. As a coffee aficionado,... More

We took my daughter to breakfast before we left town. We left our hungry college student with leftover apple pancake to feed her for a week!

I've been here a few times before for breakfast, and its amazing as ever but lunch is my favorite meal of the day and my most recent trip to Walla Walla I was able to make it in for lunch and it did not disappoint! I had the turkey & avocado sandwich on sourdough bread. It was one of the... More
