I found this place to be quite pricey for the product that can be found elsewhere for less. Nobody was in the store and we try to buy some cookies but we found the attendant to be poorly helpful. Okay to try but nothing to go out of your way.

This restaurant is now under new management and is called "White Street Grill at the 4th of July Cafe". The new menu is very similar to Mattheson's but now the food is AMAZING (rather than just good)! The "new" chili was delicious and the ribs were great!. My husband (who hates salads) had the ribeye ceasar salad so I couldn't... More

Dropped in here for a sweet treat and settled on sorbet...key lime and lemon to be exact. There were also raspberry and mango sorbets available. There was also a great variety of ice cream available. The person working there was happy to give me samples of the items asked for. A double scoop of the sorbet in a cup ran... More

We happened upon this little place on our way back from the beach and went inside for a quick lunch. What a pleasant surprise! We ordered a veggie wrap, a blackened Mahi mahi wrap, a turkey blt wrap, and a turkey stacker, with fries and chips. All 4 wraps were delicious and the waitress could not have been more pleasant....

We went there for dinner. Upon being seated we were told everything they were out of first which is a large list of items. Example pickles onion rings coleslaw chicken fingers the list goes on. The waitress seemed like she did not want to even be there. After trying to select multiple items we finally decided on food we didn't... More

Got the cali burger with fries. The burger was seasoned great, tasted just like a backyard cook out. Plan to go back for dessert later the ice cream looked awesome.

Being ice cream junkies, we had to try Matthessen's - OMG. I will be dreaming about this place until our next trip to Key West. We brought home some fudge....to die for! The only problem I had was that the x-ray machine at the airport couldn't make out what it was so they had to take the box out of... More

The ice cream cone scoop was massive. A much better taste & price than the ice cream at Haagen Daaz.

We were here twice a day -- the cookies are the best. The ice cream is excellent (key lime sorbet :) Fudge is fantastic. We went here for breakfast one morning -- as they have fresh fruit smoothies as well. Indulge and splurge - you wont find better cookies or fudge in KW.
