A few months ago, the breakfast nook at the original Maple Tree on Spring Mountain Road received a makeover, thanks to Food Network’s Restaurant: Impossible. Good thing they didn’t mess with the breakfast menu, a concise yet hearty listing that features all you could possibly want out of the first meal of the day. Think country-fried steak with seasoned sausage gravy made in-house. And giant red-velvet pancakes (there’s a gluten-free option) with pecans and cream-cheese frosting. And brunch favorites such as a Monte Cristo with maple sauce. Lest you forget this is a true mom-and-pop operation, signature apple fritters are made from a family recipe: a fluffy doughnut topped with a thick, sweet glaze of cooked apples, cinnamon and sugar. The makeover seems to have done its job—they recently opened two 24-hour locations in the Valley.
