What we ordered: It was early afternoon at the time of our visit but we all wanted breakfast. Lucky for us the Maple Tree Family Restaurant serves breakfast all day. I ordered the South of the Border skillet with scrambled eggs. Delightful! The dish started with crispy shredded hashbrowns, then sauteed green peppers, onions, and chorizo. then topped with cheddar cheese and scrambled eggs. It also came with salsa and sour cream. My breakfast was delicious, it had tons of flavor and was an extremely big portion.
My skillet came with the choice of toast or pancakes. I got the pancakes but I was honestly too full to have more than a bite. That one bite was pretty good ;)
My companion ate the Irish Benny. This dish was a combination of Corned Beef Hash topped with traditional Eggs Benedict (eggs cooked over easy then drenched in Hollandaise sauce), served with shredded hashbrowns on the side.
Service: We had great service at Maple Tree Family Restaurant. The server was very friendly and the food was prepared fairly fast. The server was also nice to let us know ahead of time that there were no free refills on the orange juice.
Overall Impression: Great place to have breakfast with fast, friendly service.
