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

Pretty good food: waiting in line for breakfast! Good food always draws more people, worth the wait.

Maple Counter isn't an inexpensive place to eat, but the food is excellent. Today we both decided to try their oatmeal, and it was great. Perfect consistency, just at the crunchy stage so I could add milk to make it just the consistency I like. Plenty of fresh fruit: strawberries, blueberries, and apple. I had to ask for coffee refills,... More

We stopped in at the suggestion of friends, and are sure glad we did! We were a little surprised how busy it was at 9:30 on a Friday morning. We waited for 10-15 minutes. I had bacon and broccoli quiche and pancakes. Quite tasty. My husband had Eggs Casey, which he said was very good. It's pricey ($45-including tip- for... More

This was very good restaurant with really long wait time to get a table. The food is good, the menu has lots of choices. The service was attentive but if your a tea drinker don't expect much more than one tea bag and one cup of water. Not true if your a coffee drinker.

We arrived by 9:00 am, so only a short wait. Food was plentiful and delicious! It was college parent weekend and even though the wait staff was busy, we still received good service and didn't have to wait long for our food.
