Had the biscuits and gravy. Good stuff. Friendly service. Tight space but with a family atmosphere. Not many choices in MV so choose this one.

Nice friendly service. Great breakfast selection. Always consistent. The back outdoor patio area with the river view is always a great place for breakfast. I always look forward to eating here. The staff are the best.

Pretty cute little stop! We really enjoyed the outside deck - I felt like I was eating at a friend's house in their backyard. Lots of spunk coming from the waitstaff. If you enjoy that, you will love them. If you are looking for polished,...More

Summertime at the Testy Chef is wonderful. Enjoy sitting out on the patio deck over looking the Cedar River. Tuna melts are awesome. We would sometimes ride our horses on the Cedar River trail and then take a short trail up to Testy Chef and...More

This is a Maple Valley mainstay, outlasting Gloria's Restaurant. I've been in Maple Valley twenty years and never had a better breakfast or Garlic Burger anywhere else. And they always have a full parking lot so that tells you about their food... Is it fine...More
