    This is in my 'hood - WHY did we wait so long to try this place? Excellent and interesting breakfast choices, pleasant atmosphere, friendly service.

    One of my very favorite morning spots. Everything is local and it's worth the wait! Local tip: If you want to get seated more quickly try sit on the bar side!

    This is the second time I've been here, and I LOVE it! The last time was at the old locations, and I like the new location a lot better. It's bigger and has this hipster-feel to it. This place would be a huge hit in Seattle or SF!

    Whatever you order, get the hash browns. It tastes like buttery goodness. I don't know what they put in it, and I don't want to know. But it tastes like angles flying around your mouth and dropping butter on your taste buds. Yep, that good! And cheap too! Every plate is under $10. Definitely coming back!

    Lines form every day, What more do I need to say. If the line is too long, check out some of the neighboring establishments instead.

    Matt's Big Breakfast is a small, quaint restaurant with limited seating so get there early if you dont want to wait long. Their most famous dish is the pork chops and they were fantastic. The raisin bread that they serve complimentary was also incredibly fresh and tasty. Everything about this place was excellent and it was a great way to start your morning.

    As seen on TV's Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, this tiny breakfast spot is totally worth the visit. Try the anything with chorizo in it and some of their fresh baked bread. The line out on the sidewalk can be lengthy, so bring your appetite and your patience - you won't regret it.

    Matt's Big Breakfast should be at the top of anyone's Phoenix "Must" list. All of the food is locally sourced and served up so fresh you really can taste it. Everything from their kick ass bacon to their bread to their coffee and juice will knock your socks off with their freshness. It is no surprise that even on a summer's day people sit outside in the heat and wait for a table.

    Wake up in the morning, food was on my mind. Whats a good place to eat? "Heard the food portion at Matt's was astronomical!" Asked myself, Am I really that hungry? Yes, Yes I AM!

    Knowing that a trendy brunch place like this would attract a lot of locals and travelers. I had mentally prepped myself to wait an hour. But who knew Matt's big breakfast would be contained in such a small place. I had waited almost 90 minutes to be seated. Good thing it was breezy that day, or it woulda been pretty intense wait.

    Once seated, pretty much knew exactly what I wanted to order until I saw the special. 3-egg scramble with andouille sausage, fresh local baby spinach and fontina cheese. Sounds amazing. Got an order of that and an order of the Hog & Chick w/ hash browns.

    The 3 egg scramble
    Definitely prettier dish of those 2. The presentation was definitely on point, the plate was full of fluffy eggs with melted fontina cheese on top. The rest of the plate was filled up with the country fries(potato). The bed of baby spinach added contrast to the plate. A dish that pleases the eye as much as the tongue. The andouille sausage/egg/fontina cheese was good combo. The flavor of all 3 really worked together, instead of fighting each other.

    Hog & Chick w/ hash browns
    This one was less aesthetically pleasing. But don't let looks fool you. This piece of pork chop is mighty tasty. The hash was real good. They browned both sides of the hash, and added some other stuff. It was tasty and had good consistency. Wish the chop was a thicker cut. I'd pay more for a thicker cut.

    Everything here tasted good, and stood out from other diners. It was not expensive at all. But good food from a small place like that just means a long wait in line to be seated. I think they do take out. So'd recommend take out or showing up early. But if I had to wait in line again, I would totally do it.

    I live right down the street from this restaurant. Their breakfast is really good. You might have to wait a while because there is usually a very long line outside the restaurant. You will not regret it once you are seated. :)
