Ok, admittedly we went there because it was too early for any of the other restaurants to be open, but it was such a pleasant experience, next time we will plan to go there first! I had some of the best Huevos Rancheros I've ever eaten. The portion size was more than ample and I enjoyed the leftovers the next... More

The food is always amazing. This is a true Dade City landmark. It's where all the locals go. The service is great. Its surrounded by lots of shops. Great place for a Saturday getaway.

We were hitting the antique shops on our way through Dade City and ate here for lunch. The fried green tomatoes were very good. Food was very good and service was too. When we were there, several police officers were eating at the table next to ours and you know what they say about the cops and truck drivers knowing... More

The staff was wonderful allowing a group of friends to dine in the upstairs. It made for a pleasant, quiet place for us to enjoy our food and still be able to enjoy having a conversation with each other. We never felt rushed, even though it was 1 pm and the middle of their lunch rush. All of us enjoyed... More

A Matter of Taste makes Tarpon Springs style Greek Salad (potato salad in the middle) and the most delicious fried green tomatoes. I ordered a small salad (was still great proportions) to save room for desert. So glad I did-the bread pudding with ice cream with drizzled Carmel sauce was delicious! My husband and I plan to eat here when... More

I have lived in Dade City since 2001, and I would have to say "A Matter of Taste" is one my favorite places to go. Working as a teacher I do not always get the option unless it's a weekend or break from school. Whenever we go we never leave dissatisfied. My wife loves the quiche.

We enjoyed a day in historic downtown Dade City visiting antique shops. A Matter of Taste was recommended to us by a local and it was great! A variety of TASTY items on the menu and daily specials with a nice friendly wait staff.

I wish like heck I wasn't allergic to pineapple because from what I saw of their signature pineapple boat dish, it looks amazing. I'm a burger foodie geek so I went straight for the Crunch Burger that was a hand made patty, fried green tomato, all the fixings, and crushed potato chips!! We also ordered fries (kind of wish they... More

I went here on the advice of a friend with whom I was taking to lunch. It is a classical Mom and Pop restaurant in a small town. The menu is very varied so anyone can find what they want. I saw that breakfast was being served all day so I got the Cubano Omelet which was one of the... More
