So,  I have a new favorite breakfast spot — well, sort of, because I love Matt’s Big Breakfast too. It’s called Over Easy and it’s right in central Phoenix at Indian School and 40th Street. It’s only open for breakfast (until 11:30am) so they’re really able to do it right. What a simple concept!

I selected the chocolate chip pancakes and I just have one word, y-u-m-m-y. What’s better than mixing chocoate with breakfast? Nothing, as far as I’m concerned. I couldn’t resist the tater tots when I noticed them on the menu so I added those to my order as well. And let me just say, tater tots for breakfast is genius. My only complaint, if you can call it one, was that I could have used a bigger plate to manuver around the pancakes. But, I managed to work around it.

My husband went the more traditional route with eggs, toast, bacon and hashbrowns and was equally as pleased.  Over Easy uses quality ingredients, including cage-free eggs, so not only did we have a fantastic breakfast, we could feel good about what we ate.  Kind of. I’m guessing the fresh ingredients still had their fair share of calories. Oh well, it was totally worth it.

We ate here during the week, a little late in the morning, so no waiting. I hear it’s quite a popular spot on the weekends but based on my experience, worth the wait.
