Maple Counter's Little Sister

Two years ago the Maple Counter Cafe, one of Walla Walla's premier breakfast restaurants, added a new member to their family--Maple Counter Waffle Company. Housed in a shiny aluminum food trailer with a snappy black and white awning, the Waffle Company took up residence in the empty space along Alder in between the parent restaurant and Marcy's on the corner. For two seasons they have served up freshly baked waffles in their al fresco dining room.

But just this week as the 2017 season begins, I noticed they've been spiffing up the place. The trailer which was originally located at the back of the space, has been moved to the front, and a new concrete tile patio has been installed along with a new black railing which defines the dining space onto the sidewalk. The move creates much improved curb appeal along with more seating for hungry customers. 

As can be seen here, construction is still in progress on a mini porch outside the door to the main kitchen. 

With so many waffle options, it's hard to make a choice.

But once you have decided, just step up to the window to place your order

The Maple tree logo adds a nice custom touch to the fencing as well as casts a lovely shadow.

The Waffle Company is open Saturday and Sunday from 8 AM - 1:30 PM.
Otherwise, the Maple Counter Cafe is open daily from 7 AM - 3:00 PM.
