Popular but turnover seemed fast enough and people didn’t seem to mind the wait as they were out of the rain. Service was friendly and quick. Omelette was tasty and came with a good choice of toasts. I didn’t have coffee, so no opinion there....More

My friend kept telling me about this place and it didn't disappoint! I had the scramble special with every kind of goodness you would wish for including bacon, spinach, tomatoes and cheese. It came with potatoes and a choice of toast. My friend had a...More

The food was great and the service was fantastic as well. We ordered a breakfast burrito to split (it was more than enough food) and had a side of breakfast potatoes that were amazing! I wouldn’t recommend the mimosas though, very underwhelming.

Our breakfast burrito was sublime and the Carmel roll was the best we’ve ever had. Whatever kind of coffee they brew is wonderful as well. Don’t be surprised if you have to wait a while for a table, but it’s worth it! (Free coffee while...More

The food here is always so good, so homemade. On the weekends, it's kind of crazy and there will be a wait but, you'll be glad you stuck around. Their breakfasts are quite tasty, you can't go wrong. Try the pumpkin waffle, so moist and...More

Husband picked this place out. I was hopeful it was going to be good as it is a small place and there were a lot of people waiting. I ordered the Eggs Benedict and mentioned to the waiter that I like the whites of eggs...More

This is my favorite breakfast spot when in the Cities. The coffee is good, the food is awesome and the decor is eclectic. I always enough food to take home. Go early or expect a wait after 0900.

This amazing almost hidden gem will indeed be a new favorite for us. The service is fabulous (but expect to wait 30+ minutes to get a seat, they are always busy and for good reason....it will be well worth your wait) The portions are large,...More

Call and fiind out. As the others have said, it is very small. We sat outside.....I don't think you are going to want to do that now!

Hot Plate is known for its unique Nutella, peanut butter and bacon pancakes. Our house specials include the Grand Marais and Carnitas scrambles. The caramelized pecan rolls are also a mouthful, try them and let us know. We also test new and original dishes on a regular basis. Those getting the two-thumbs-up are likely to make it into our regular menu over time. We are open everyday from 8:00am to 2:00pm, and we serve breakfast until 1:45pm, when our kitchen closes and we start getting ready for the next day, ...well except on Fridays when we have Taco Night 5-9pm. Waiting times vary on weekends, but you can expect from 15 minutes on Fridays and Saturdays to about 45min on Sundays. We cannot take reservations given the small size of our dining area, but we try hard to keep the waiting time to a minimum by keeping our table bussers on their toes and our kitchen running like a well-oiled machine. We kindly ask that your party is complete before we can assign your table. Hot Plate
