Had a great meal with an outstanding cup of coffee. The strawberry preserves were excellent. The pork chop with eggs was very good. Was busy and waited about 10 minutes for a table mid week at 10am.

Easy to get to. Reasonable parking (mostly on the street). Great breakfast menu, great food and great service. Matt's was fast, friendly and tasty. Would go there again and again...

Matt's was recommended by the Avis concierge at Sky Harbor. Glad we took him at his word and made the short trip to Matt's Big Breakfast! We were greeted and seated with no wait (seat yourself but with a warm greeting). The seating area has an industrial vibe. Daily specials are posted on the full wall chalkboard or Oder off... More

The wait was about 30 minutes, totally worth it. There was a dispenser outside with cold water and cups; great on a hot day. Once inside we had multiple people waiting on us. Beverages came quickly: fresh squeezed orange juice, perfect coffee. I had the waffle; crispy and fluffy! My husband and son had the special; eggs with chicken sausage... More

Great hip atmosphere, great service and a really BIG omelette, all at a good price. I arrived at 7:30 and by 8:00, the place was filling up with customers. After a enjoying a delicious BIG breakfast at Matt's Big Breakfast, I was informed by a server that my meal had been paid for. I'm a stranger in this town, and... More

This place is always busy which is a good indication of how good the place is. I have yet to be disappointed when I go there for breakfast. When I go there with my daughters, we always get seated at a small table large enough for two...but I don't mind. That's how good their breakfast is...and the staff. One thing... More

Stopped by Matt's after arriving in Phoenix for a girl's weekend. Location was close to airport. Arrived about 9:00 am and had a 20 minute wait. Always a good sign that the food will be good! We waited outside and they had orange-flavored water available. Once inside, atmosphere was fun, tables close together but very comfortable chairs. I ordered the... More

Always a wait at Matt's Big Breakfast. I never understand those impatient people who just can't chill out and wait and meet new friends out in front . Get over it and prepare to be treated to great food, tremendous variety and big portions. The vibe inside is "fast". Service is amazingly quick. Imagine the pace in the kitchen. We... More

We really like Matt's. They have an extensive menu quick service and large portions. The jelly is especially good with excellent biscuits. We actually usually go there for lunch.

I ate breakfast here twice on my business trip. Fresh honey lemonade, daily specials, local coffee, all round great food and atmosphere. Service was quick. They also have coffee bar seating if you prefer - which is nice when you are eating alone.
