“Good breakfast place!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Nice place - they make all pastries and muffins and baked goods in house. They were very good.

I had the blueberry pancakes and they were good. Not out of this world - just good. Ask for extra blueberries for sure.

Service was average as well. The menu is pretty basic.

It is a solid breakfast place.

“Consistently Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

We stop at the Blue Plate for breakfast nearly every visit to Lakeside. The food is consistently good, the service is friendly (though they sometimes seem understaffed), and the portions are generous. Breakfast on the patio on a nice summer morning is time well spent. If you have kids, share the kids menu items (1 item per 2 kids). Again, the portions are large.

“never again”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

We stopped at the café for lunch when we were traveling for work.
The kitchen staff seemed nice, but the wait staff acted like it was a bother to wait on us. They brought us our drink and food and never came back to check on us. The Americana BLT Sandwhich should have been called a Lettuce Sandwhich. There was hardly any bacon or tomatoes to be found. We waited for the bill so we could get back on road and finally had to go to register to get it. Then stood there for extra 10 minutes while they ignored us. I will never stop there again no matter how hungry I was. The prices are ridiculous also. Our sandwhich was $7 with no chips or anything. It was cheapest thing on menu. Pancakes are $8-$11 bucks, holy cow! and the servings are small. don't waste your time or money.

“Crave bakery?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

This is a very nice casual dining place. Brunch, lunch, nothing fancy but nicely prepared, graciously served. Save room for a desert. Everything home made. You will want everything .
