Due to Covid, we decided on takeout. In fairness, we have had only good experiences with Mattie's. Today was not good. I ordered 2 eggs, hash browns, and English muffin. I did not receive the muffin. There was no ketchup, no silverware or napkins. My...wife ordered blueberry pancakes. She received three, very thin, burned pancakes. The blueberries were in a bucket, not in the pancakes. Evidently you must tell Mattie's if you want blueberries in your blueberry pancakes. There was one tiny packet of pancake syrup, not even enough for one pancake, let alone three. Again, no silverware or napkins. Very disappointing to see Mattie's perform so poorly.More

Because of COVID restrictions they could only seat about 6 tables at any one time. Made for a little bit of a wait but you could also get food to go. Extremely friendly staff and great food.

While visiting in Brookings, I ordered biscuits and gravy to go. Their were lots of cars in the parking lot, which is always a good sign. My order was ready to go, no waiting. When I got home and opened the container, I could hardly...believe the quantity of biscuits and gravy, plus a huge portion of golden brown hash browns. It could have easily fed two people with average appetites. It was absolutely delicious! This is one of the two best breakfasts I've had in a restaurant. The other was at the Cottage Cafe in Rogue River. I will definitely be going to Mattie's the next time I visit Brookings.More

We just love breakfast at Mattie’s when we are in Brookings. Grandson was celebrating his 21st Birthday on this visit and had the same breakfast he has had for years - chocolate chip pancakes - and loved them this time as much as he did...years ago. The bacon and cheese omelette is delicious and the home fries are the best anywhere. Their sausage patties are excellent and are from Taylor’s Meats in Cave Junction. They were so good we even made a stop at Taylor’s on our way home to purchase their breakfast sausage. It’s also so nice to see the same waitresses every visit - seems to me that is a sign of a great business. Do yourself a favor and be sure to visit Mattie’s when you are in town.More

The breakfast are typical of any breakfast joint, not the best and definitely not the worst. The next time I go I think I will try their pancakes and see how those are, this time I had a typical breakfast of two eggs, home fries,...ham, toast and coffee. Home fries were not fully cooked and the coffee was OK, but I prefer a much better cup of coffee for breakfast.More

This place is fantastic and judging by the busyness everyone in Brookings knows it! Superbly located at the side of highway 101 this diner gets everything right. We were seated immediately, served superbly and fed amazing food. Our water and coffee were always topped up...and the menu of classic breakfast favourites was beautifully prepared. An absolute must visit for anyone in and around Brookings.More
