Quality PHX Breakfast recs (besides Matts)?

DeansHouse | Oct 17, 2008 12:11 AM

Just Wednesday a friend and I finally got a day off together, so we decided to go to breakfast on our way east and began looking around for a downtown breakfast.

We found Matts Big Breakfast through recommendations, and while we love what we think they're trying to do, we're looking for a place that actually *can* pull off the fresh quality ingredients / consistent preparation thing. Passable service is all we ask - is there such a place anywhere in the Phoenix Metro area? We find that we're still looking after our first (and last) visit to Matts :-(

If you're curious, we tried the pork chop, and my pal had the cheese omelette. Even with the commercial-grade steak knife, no one was able to physically cut through the pork chop (demonstrated for manager who appeared after our meal was over, which was better than the server who never appeared period).

S.O. had the cheese omelette, and I suppose with all the accolades we probably shouldn't have expected a real egg cook like the kind that can make a light & fluffy mini-football sized omelette as opposed to the over-hard trifold wallet type of thing got.

Can say however that the water was cold, coffee hot, potatoes and toast were wonderful! Just sore at the $20 something bill for two.

Curious - if the place is named 'Matts', is that a real person? Thanks!
