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.

This is a popular breakfast and lunch restaurant that has quite a following. We stopped by for a weekday breakfast so there was no line at 8 AM. We got to scramble breakfasts which came out in a reasonable timeframe and were both delicious. The portions were large and ingredients generously apportioned. Neither of us finished our meal completely. Service... More

Interesting location in the basement of a gym. There is a covered stairwell down to a landing entry into the cafés waiting area. On busy mornings not only the waiting area but steps can be lined with people. May seem strange, but I got the impression expecting to wait in line to dine is part of the traditional ambience of...

We stopped in for breakfast and we're not disappointed. The service was very fast and the food was excellent. We did get there just as they opened. They did start to fill up rather fast. My bacon spinach omelet was perfect. I did get a cinnamon roll to go.

This restaurant is very small and out of the way but it is extremely busy. We went at 9:30 on a Sunday and waited an hour for a table since they don't accept reservations except large parties. The atmosphere is very casual and decor can be described only as eclectic (they appear to have framed every piece of paper or... More
