very good breakfast

Went for breakfast recently after we decided not to wait an hour to get into another place that we had gone to first. We arrived at prime time breakfast hour on a Saturday morning and only had to wait about 10 minutes for a table. This was my first experience with this diner, and I would... read more

With this place highlighted on Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives, we were hoping for something special. Frankly the management isn't taking advantage of a great opportunity put on their plate. I ordered the Wednesday special (Chicken Enchilada), my wife Eggs Benedict. When the cute waitress took the order she said it would be right up. But we waited ... and... More

We forgot that we'd read a recent review regarding the pork burrito. We both ordered it - it was fresh& tasty, but we thought that our waitress had accidentally given us the vegetarian burrito. My husband then remembered he'd read a recent review where someone had been disappointed with their pork salsa verde burrito. Think of it as a nice... More

I just ate here again and realized that I've never told anyone about it. Shame on me. It has the best breakfasts around. It has a fun atmosphere, with many eclectic items, like an old bar area, classic bikes, old postcards everywhere and classic paper placemats. The owners have really captured the styling of a place to remember. As if... More

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 extra points there. Service... 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.
