Good location within walking distance of hotel we stayed at. Excellent friendly and helpful service. Kept coffee hot and fresh. Large portions so split omelet between two of us. Biscuits were also excellent. Definitely recommend for breakfast when visiting Memphis.

Friendly people, good food - go hungry or split the breakfasts. There was easily enough food in one meal for the two of us.

The food was good but the staff was very rude. The breakfast was very reasonably priced but again the service we received was less than stellar!

I highly recommend this for families looking for a bfast/lunch place to please everyone. It was very convenient after our Mud Island jaunt. They close at 2 but serve breakfast until then, which is a big plus for our boys. Waffle was crispy/tender with a delicious blueberry compote topping. Fried chicken was delicious, and the southern veggie sides were as... More

Blue Plate Cafe is conveniently located in the middle of downtown Memphis, off a quiet square. I have visited a few times now and have ordered eggs, hash browns, biscuits, bacon, eggs Benedict, and several other items. We always leave stuffed and happy. It's a pretty casual and laid back atmosphere and very nice for a weekend late breakfast.

There was no indication this restaurant was closed in the evening. We went there thinking we would have dinner and were told they were closed and would open the next day for breakfast.

On the recommendation of my airport shuttle driver, I walked a few blocks from my hotel to have breakfast. Simple décor with blue and white as their theme. I ordered the Blue Plate special - two scramble egg whites with hash browns, Tater tots, sausage, fruit and Orange juice. I did not taste anything special in the food taste. I... More
