Stopped for a quick lunch while vacationing in BC. Plates is a quaint all day breakfast and lunch restaurant with a nice decor of vintage license plates from all over North America. The service was quick and very friendly server. We has the BLT and the Glacier Kings Combo breakfast. Servings are very generous and very tasty.

Pretty much a "Go Too Place" if we want it go in and sit and have a meal in a casual setting. Both breakfast and lunch menus are super, prices are reasonable and service is always outstanding.
