After having lived in HSV for 8 years, we finally decided to eat here. Service was fast, friendly, and the place was clean. I'll give it that! I had chicken salad on croissant with fries. Couple of points here: The fries had an odd taste... Almost like they were using the same fryer to fry donuts in?? They were good,... More

Today I went for breakfast. I ordered coffee because I had already eaten. My co-worker ordered 3 eggs, bacon and grits. No toast or biscuit. Coffee to drink. Our check total was $14.45 before tip. I have also eaten lunch there. Overall, I would say the food is good. It has it's ups and downs.

The food was good, the prices treasonable, and the service prompt. If the location were not so inconvenient from our house, I would take our family back there to eat.

The food here is first rate. If you just want a good home style meal, the Blue Plate is a great choice. Price is right, food is good and service is friendly. Also fast, but packed at lunch.

We tried two different meat and 3 plates (pot roast and chicken and dressing), both were excellent. Vegetables were fresh and well prepared, rolls were house made and very good.

This place was recommended by a local. Do not let the outside of the bldg. worry you. Inside is clean, and roomy. There were over 20 of us. The restaurant was very accommodating, and the help worked well together to get our orders. Food was good. I personally thought prices were just a tad too high though. I would go... More

This place was suggested by some locals from Huntsville as I was an out of town guest. I told them I was looking for good old American food, diner type place. This place was perfect. Excellent food, good prices, good service.

Looking for a local favorite while visiting NASA. This cafe hit all the right marks! So reminded me of my grandma's home cooking and was able to tell our kids how much it reminded me of their great-grandmother's cooking, that they never had the privilege to experience. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff, a place that the regulars are known with a... More
