Matchbox, Rockville MD

I've visited Matchbox in Rockville several times after it first opened, but haven't gotten a chance to write a review.  On this past Sunday, we made a reservation for brunch at Matchbox again since they have a live jazz band performing during brunch hours. We had a very relaxing dining experience!

I made a reservation through open table, and we were seated immediately upon arrival.  We had a very nice table right by the Jazz band, the music was great and the atmosphere relaxing.  We were greeted with smiles and handed matchbox regular menu and a special brunch menu.

After going over the special brunch menu, we placed orders for a breakfast pizza since the toppings all looked really good and I've always loved the pizza there.  He ordered the steak and egg on flat iron skillet.  While we were waiting for food, we just chilled and enjoyed the Jazz live band, they were great!

Our food arrived in 10-15 minutes, which was descent.  My breakfast pizza was delicious, the crust was charred perfectly from the brick oven and the breakfast toppings were delicious.  What's not to love?  Scrambled eggs and sausages!  Not sure what dressing they put on top of the pizza but it was the perfect companion for the toppings, maybe close to a thousand island & mayo combination?

The steak and egg entree was presented beautifully.  The steak was tender and cooked just right, the baked potato on top was delicious as well.  The dish had a lot of egg though, we ended up taking some of it home to avoid egg overdose :)

We both had a pleasant experience at Matchbox for brunch.  When the weather warms up, maybe we could try taking our dog and sit in their patio area!  I can't wait!
