We ate breakfast here on our way out of Huntsville to get back on the road. The few times we drove past while we were visiting it looked very crowded, and breakfast time was no exception.

Blue Plate Cafe is a southern comfort food diner. We went here for breakfast and the servings are huge! We had pancakes, omelette, and grits. Waitstaff was very attentive and friendly. From what I saw, lunch was a typical home-style meat and three.

Found it on Trip Advisor...Loved all the negative/terrible postings..We could not believe a business would still exist with those comments..We just had to check it out....Arrived 9 AM, quick seating and coffee in hand BEFORE the menu...Attentive server Brittany...She even offered a "to go" coffee...'Nuff said...Enjoyed every minute.

Been here for breakfast many many times. Omelettes are great, very berry pancakes are fabulous. Good coffee. You can get tots with your meal! They always offer a cup of coffee to go which is nice. Recommended for breakfast. I've never eaten other meals here.
