Big Breakfast in a Small Space

Must Try

It’s hard to believe that Matt’s Big Breakfast is contained in 800 square feet, including the kitchen. No wonder patrons line up around the corner each morning for a plate of Matt’s best. Locals love the Chop & Chick (two eggs and a skillet-seared Iowa pork rib chop) and the Five Spot (a breakfast sandwich on a roll with two eggs, two slices of thick-cut bacon, American cheese, and grilled onions). Favorite sides include off-the-bone ham, the big hash browns, and extra 100 percent maple syrup. The Big Butter Burger draws a lunchtime crowd because the hand-pressed Niman Ranch ground chuck is grilled in butter and topped with a gooey waterfall of American cheese. Only one word of caution: After breakfast or lunch you may need a big nap.
