Maltby Cafe

8809 Maltby Rd., Snohomish, WA - (425) 483-3123
Posted By Michael Stern on 5/19/2007 9:03:00 AM
The Maltby Café is located in an amazing little town of nostalgic mise-en-scene that includes strategically-situated old farm machinery, a few windmills, and uncounted number of vintage gasoline station signs.

The primary reason to dine here is the cinnamon roll, a massive circular coil of sweet pastry served on a dinner plate, which it fits edge-to-edge. It is a full meal and then some.

There are other plate-filling breakfasts, too. Maltby oatmeal is served with melted butter running all over the top of the bowl. French toast is double-thick. The Maltby omelet is a plate-filler loaded with ham, beef, peppers, and onions.

After breakfast, there is lunch, which looks good … although we must admit that cinnamon rolls and omelets have pretty much put lunch out of the question for us. The menu includes pasta plates, homemade soup, and a piled-high hot Reuben sandwich.

We've listed Maltby's cinnamon roll as a 'side dish,' which it can be if it is shared by two to four people. For a single diner, it is a very large meal. That's a full size dinner plate it occupies. (photo by buffetbuster)

The Bella Scramble is not your typical breakfast item, mixing fresh basil and garlic scrambled eggs, sun-dried tomatoes, mozzarella and parmesan cheeses, plus pine nuts.

The prime rib omelette contains mushrooms, green peppers, onions, tomatoes, black olives, Tillamook cheddar, Jarlsberg, and big chunks of prime rib. This is a lot of food!

The Maltby Cafe is located in an old schoolhouse built in 1937. It originally served as the gymnasium and cafeteria. (photo by buffetbuster)
