Good Vibe, Good Food

The owners of the Blue Plate Diner have captured the quintessential diner vibe. On top of that, the place serves a pretty great burger, which you can build your own way. I was surprised to find that I could add applewood bacon -- not just regular bacon, which would have been fine -- so they get... read more

No matter if you are from Salt Lake City or visiting, you have to go to the Blue Plate Diner. They have a great selection of both vegetarian and vegan options that are delicious! Try one of their benedicts! The hollandaise sauce is good enough to drink! If you are really hungry, check out their, all you care to eat... More

Stopped by for a late breakfast. Service was good but not great and the food was mixed. One of us had the eggs Benedict, and one of us had the pork chili verde burrito. The eggs Benedict was a knockout and the burrito was poor. A tortilla stuffed full of black beans and not much else wasn't that appetizing and... More

We lived in the Sugarhouse area of Utah about 12 years ago and remember when Blue Plate first opened. Satisfying comfort food, served fast, in a funky and cozy location. We moved out of state and on this trip back to Salt Lake took our kids through the old neighborhood and had lunch at Blue Plate. So nice to see... More

Had breakfast on a busy Sat. morning and everyone in our party raved about their food. Our small group of 5 ordered full breakfasts and the service was awesome. Their house-made biscuits and gravy were exceptional, as was the green chile omelet (the only ones I sampled). We were part of the early crowd so easily got a seat, but... More

Wonderful breakfast menu with some typical breakfast food and some that you don't get everywhere else. I had poached eggs on black beans with salsa, Mexican Eggs Benedict. Delicious. Another in our party had a breakfast dish with fresh guacamole. The coffee was great too. I will definitely go back.

This is an old favourite of ours from 7 or 8 years back. We visited SLC last week and could not miss one of THE finest breakfasts on the planet. I won't drone on about this and that - everything on the menu is outstanding, and for the extremely hungry only. The specials require extreme strength of will to resist.... More

Looking at the building you wouldn't expect much but upon entering you're greeted with fast friendly service. Many menu options from Turkey dinner to burgers to breakfast (served all day). I think my food was about $8. Our waiter was terrific. All in our party were thrilled with the food except my mother's mashed potatoes weren't warm. They quickly remedied... More

We were visiting someone in Sugarhouse and went twice here for breakfast. The staff is friendly. The place is cute. And the food is pretty good. The first day, the salmon benedict was amazing. The second day, the salmon was very dry and disappointing. The french toast was good …. but odd that it came with potatoes. The chicken fried... More

Went here because it was a Triple D (Diners, Drive in and Dives) recommendation and it didn't disappoint! Had the smoked salmon eggs Benedict on the advice of my waiter and it was melt in your mouth awesome! Loved the jukebox playing oldies. Go. Eat. You will love it!
