Quirky diner! Well worth a visit!

Salt Lake is full of small cafes and diners and if you like things a little quirky, then this one is well worth a visit. It a family business that hasn't changed for years, the inside is full of pictures and random memorabilia, it's not trying to be cool it just is! The food is simple, plentiful... read more

My husband and I went here for lunch. He actually ate breakfast, (which you can do all day). I had a hamburger with spivey potatoes. The potatoes were the best part of the meal. The hamburger was 'fine'. Nothing too spectacular. I did notice there were many vegetarian options on the menu. Overall, I would say this place is average.

Stopped here on the way to SLC from the east. I had the burger which was great, my wife had a burrito with green chiles. The cheese and green chiles tasted good but the rest of the burrito was so-so. The first cup of coffee delivered was ice cold. Other than that the service was good and the decor was... More

The food was good and the service was great. I had a Reuben sandwich and the portions were good. Definitely worth the visit.

A quaint little place with good prices. Service was adequate although the host merely handed us menus, mumbled and walked away. We determined that meant we were to seat ourselves. I had the chicken burrito. It was huge and very good. My husband had the meatloaf and though it was not the traditional style of the south, he thoroughly enjoyed... More

We've been here twice in 3 months, so there's no question we really like the place. This is a funky & very cool diner with booths, soda fountain and great decorations. Eating in or out its all good. Great omlets, good coffee and good tea (2 bags+water) with terrific waitstaff: Dani and Milton.

Great experience this morning at Blue Plate. We knew that going on a weekend morning would be busy, but decided to arrive for brunch anyway. There were three of us, and waited about 20 minutes for a table (not bad for a Sunday Morning). Atmosphere at Blue Plate is super relaxed and although the staff is pretty busy, everyone seems...

Very good breakfast menu and food; service was cheerful but rather slow. It was nice to be able to sit outside in the covered porch area and catch some cool breezes.
