Good vegetarian food and nice casual atmosphere

My partner and I both ordered vegetarian shepherd's pie which was tasty and chose the side of fries along with it which were yum too for reasonable price - $15. Waiter was nice. Suggestions for improvement: other wait staff on duty could have been attentive to our table.

My husband and visited Blue Plate Diner last during Al Fresco on 104th street and were very disappointed!! First off we sat outside with all the action and there were no heaters....not the end of the world but a summer night in Edmonton can get chilly and a restaurant of this supposed caliber you would think could afford a couple...

The food was really good, love the mac and cheese. Just very loud inside as everything echos as very large room with concrete walls. In the summer better to eat on the patio.

Always enjoy the diner food here and really enjoyed the Shepherd's Pie I had last time. Great fries, as well. Lots of choices, including vegetarian. My wife continues to be disappointed in the Veggie burger. It used to be so great and she says she will not order in future.

Small menu but amazing food, recommend a reservation as there is limited seating. Daily special is usually a good best

One of my favorite breakfast spots. Went for dinner once and it was great then too! Deserts are wonderful. I love the eclectic nature of this place and try to come often.

We went for lunch, it was very busy and we had made reservations anticipating it being busy. The food was great but not necessarily worth the price tag. You could tell that the food is prepared fresh. Would I go again, yes, but it hasn't made it to the list of my favorite places downtown. P.S - the mac&cheese was... More

A cute and slightly eccentric breakfast diner right on historic 104 St. The service was efficient, and the food was reasonably priced. Really not much to comment here as the food was generally unremarkable, however if you are looking for a decent classic western breakfast at a good price, this is a good place.

We had a very big, very good meal at this charmingly eccentric place. Local beers on tap and multiple vegetarian options were what encouraged us to come, and we're glad we did. Vegetarian shepherd's pie was especially tasty.

This is probably my favorite restaurant in Edmonton. Food is fresh, well-prepared and always spot on. Anytime I'm in town, I make a point to have dinner here. There are great vegetarian options here as well. The last time I visited, I had the meatloaf with roasted vegetables and a side of mac-n-cheese. Wine selection is great and changes regularly....
