We spent the past year putting together a list of the best breakfast spots in the Valley for the 2013 Best of Phoenix® edition.

Print this off, bookmark it, pocket it, or make your own list for the next time you feel like rolling out of bed and having someone else make breakfast for you. Bonus: There's no clean-up.
Locally crafted coffee and fresh-made breakfast and brunch items might seem out of place on the fast food and chain-ridden intersection of Seventh Avenue and McDowell, but thanks to Vovomeena owner DJ Fernandes (also Tuck Shop, Astor House), they're a breath of fresh air that we hope stays in the neighborhood.

Best Neighborhood Breakfast, Downtown Phoenix: Matt's Big Breakfast
Melanie Mathieu Outside Matt's new location just down the street from its original location.
Last fall, Matt's Big Breakfast chef-owner Matt Pool moved his killer homemade breakfast dishes to a new home just up the street. Naturally, we followed. Thanks to its being twice the size of the old place (from 25 to 50 seats), there's more elbow room to hunker down with Pool's plates of fluffy, from-scratch griddlecakes, eggs and off-the-bone ham, and luscious cheese- and veggie-stuffed omelets. And although the new Matt's still features its famous long lines, at least it's got its own restrooms.
