Nice relaxing atmosphere

The restaurant was clean and sunny and had a nice relaxing atmosphere. The waitress was attentive without being a nuisance. The food was plentiful, hot, and quite tasty. We went on a Tuesday for a midday meal and we were seated promptly without any wait. Prices were reasonable and overall it was a... read more

My wife and I went out for breakfast and wanted to try a different place for Sunday breakfast. We got to Matina a little after 7 and walked in and had to shout for someone to come out and serve us. Service was okay, but since we were the only ones in there, the one waitress should have been more... More

Service has deteriorated recently, I hope they return to their former standards. We've had burnt pancakes and raw pancakes.

One of three local places that I love to visit when I need a big breakfast fix! The country skillet is more than i can finish in one sitting - delicious! Wonderful coffee, too! Food is always fresh and prepared quickly! But don't rush away - savor some coffee and soak in the relaxing atmosphere and enjoy the great service.... More

My family loves going to Matina's Cafe. Their menu offers a large breakfast and lunch selection. They always have 2 homemade soups and they are served in a large bowl. I feel their portions are very good size and enough to take home leftovers. We have had nothing but good service and prompt attention from their wait staff. Their monte... More

Great breakfast, hearty servings, the omelet comes with an enormous amount of hashbrowns and a full-size order of pancakes, ordered the homemade honey glazed doughnut, and got several large donut holes, and absolutely the best bacon ever from a restaurant, nice thick slices. No skimping here, but don't expect to get your bill we just had to go to the... More

They always have 2 homemade soups per day and they are served in large bowls. The waitresses are very attentive and every time that I have gone there for breakfast or lunch, the meal was fantastic. The atmosphere is quaint and they have a large collection of clocks on the wall. Leave the calorie counter behind and treat yourself to... More
