OC Restaurant Quest: The Maple Leaf Restaurant in Troy
(Crystal A. Proxmire, May 25, 2023)
Troy, MI – A friend and I met for breakfast at a family diner in Troy called The Maple Leaf. Keeping with it’s name, the cozy restaurant has maple leaf-shaped bottles on each table for the syrup. Neither of us ordered pancakes or waffles (or whatever else people put syrup on), but they are on the menu along with a lot of great choices.
My friend decided to have a BLT for breakfast, because she’s bold like that. And that sandwich did look good. Nice thick crispy bacon, hearty slices of tomatoes, fresh lettuce and perfectly toasted bread with mayonnaise on the side so you know it’s fresh and can add as much as you’d like. Plus a pickle spear to add just that little bit of tang. She loved it.
I had the spinach and feta crepes, and I was delighted to see them made with with fresh leaves of spinach and an ample supply of crumbled feta. Four was way too many for one meal, but they were easy to share. And a good way to start the day.
I am fond of crepes, and The Maple Leaf Restaurant has a few good ones to chose from, including Eddie’s Crepes made with chicken, red and green peppers, onion, American cheese and Swiss cheese. There are also fruit crepes, pecan crepes, Nutella crepes, garden crepes and more.
Other breakfast choices include a variety of omelettes, corned beef hash, and benedicts.
For lunch and dinner there are burgers, sandwiches, and wraps, including the Ellis Island sandwich made with turkey, corned beef, roast beef, and Swiss cheese on grilled rye bread. There are also entrees like chicken carbonara, honey Cajun salmon, meatloaf, and Hush Puppy battered shrimp with French fries.
The restaurant was comfy, with nice big booths and tables, and friendly waitstaff. Plus there is plenty of parking around back.
The Maple Leaf Restaurant is located at 110 W. Maple Road in Troy. Check them out online at www.MapleLeafTroy.com
