Happened upon the MTC the other day----incredible made with, and served with pride family owned restaurant. Out of this world omlettes, incredible homemade corned beef hash, and wonderful everything, this place should become your don't miss breakfast stop in Vegas.

Went back for lunch today, and had an amazing patty melt, and my GF had a phenominal veggie benny omlette.....

The owner and her daughers serve you and everything is homemade. This is a don't miss place...

    Agreed. Much improved after the previous owner kinda ran the place into the ground. Excellent chicken fried steak and I like that the potatoes aren't greasy.

      Any idea when the ownership changed? I ask because I was there eight or so months ago and didn't like it much. (greasy, not-great CBH)

        We were there the last week of April and the new owners had just taken over, I think they said in March. Sounds like you might have hit up the place at the tail end of the old ownership.

          Maple Tree was one of the best places for breakfast in Las Vegas prior to the economic downturn, but deteriorated in recent years prior to new owners taking over in March. Fortunately, the new ownership's intention is to restore the restaurant to its prior glory. Our waiter was the brother of the new owner and his aunt serves as chef. Neither the interior nor menu has undergone much change except for an overall price increase. We each ordered the New England Benny, poached eggs with Hollandaise sauce over twin crab cakes and English muffins accompanied by a choice of breakfast potatoes. The meal was good, but the crab cakes must have been on the Jenny Craig system because they were noticeably thinner than in the past.

          We are planning on returning, but will be trying something else on the menu.

      Just went today. Can't say it was out of this world, but it was refreshing to go off-strip. Service is friendly and feels genuine, which is something I've really been missing since arriving in the US last week.

        Here are my comments from our visit last week:

        For a Sunday morning, the restaurant was pretty much empty but for a table of 2 and two singles. Maple Tree used to be one of our favorite places for breakfast, but the original owners sent it on the skids before selling out earlier this year. Our waitress took our orders and returned with a miniscule sample of a coffee cake “that just come out of the oven” though it was served at room temperature. We each ordered French toast stuffed with strawberry cream cheese and topped with strawberries. The cream cheese filling was little more than a smear and the French toast itself was pretty ordinary. Based on our experience on this trip and last, I feel the new owners needs to immediately address pricing (too expensive) and quality (disappointing) issues. ($15, Groupon, 2 Forks)
