We recently visited Memphis, TN and the valet recommended that we eat breakfast at the Blue Plate Cafe. Boy, are we glad we dud. The service was great and fast and the food was delicious! Our waitress brought a basket of warm bicuits and a bowl full of sausage gravy right after we ordered, and that was just the beginning... More

Biscuits and gravy to die for. Ruby was our server. She was excellent and had a great personality. Bright and sunny and clean. Definitely put it on your list of places to eat in Memphis

We were travelling overnight and found this cozy downtown place through TA. Great breakfast, grits, biscuits with gravy, country ham, all really good. Stephenie was the best and took really good care of us and all the tables around us. We went on Sunday morning. I guess the place could be really crowded at weekdays or lunch.

My family and I stopped in here for breakfast on our last day of vacation. It was so good! The homemade biscuits are the best. The homestyle hash browns tasted just like my grandmother made when she was alive. Boy did that bring back some memories. The pancakes were light and fluffy and they brought out warm syrup to go...

Seated quickly. Friendly staff. Food is excellent and in large portions. Food came out quickly. We went for breakfast; got eggs, bacon, hashbrowns, pancakes, and biscuits with gravy. Their biscuits are some of the best. Highly recommend this place.

Food was average, waitress was fabulous, hostess was clueless. Would I go back? Probably not. If I did, I would get the biscuits, they looked amazing!

Possibly the best breakfast we've ever had. Great location on Court Square across from the park, a short walk from the Peabody Hotel. Can't say enough about the delicious, perfectly prepared food (and lots of it), heated syrup in glass bottles with pour spouts,e.g. Original artwork, very reasonable pricing, particularly considering the exceptional quality. Great service, too.

Friendly waitstaff, ample portions. Had a home cooking taste and feel. A short walk from hotel. Seemed popular with locals and tourists.
