Breakfast in Phoenix

Hot Peppers | Apr 25, 200801:24 PM

Just came back from Phoenix and tried 3 breakfast places: Matt's Big Breakfast, Roberto's Mexican Food, and Butterfields Pancake House.

I would highly recommend all 3, and all are completely different. Matt's is a quaint and busy storefront that serves the best potatoes you'll ever taste, with grilled onions and rosemary. Very friendly staff and although you will have to wait awhile for you table - big deal, you are in Phoenix, and it is sunny! Roberto's, featured in "Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives" is in a Shell station in northern Phoenix near Glendale. Everything was made to order and was delicious. The portions were humongous. Butterfields was a pleasant surprise, not knowing what to expect. Big and clean, with large portions, and very good quality, despite being a franchise (other branches are in Illinois).

Which you select would depend on where you are in the valley. Matt's is downtown, so close to the airport. I would head there before catching a flight. Butterfield's is in central Scottsdale, while, as stated above, Roberto’s is more northeast. However, you can't go wrong with any of the 3.
