The food was the best we had our entire trip. Cooked perfect. Katrina was our waitress and she was amazing!

Great service. Everything else was pretty average. Friends had sausage gravy and omelets. Not many breakfast locations open during the weekday in the area (during covid), but worth a stop.

Went to Memphis to ride down the MightyMississippi and to celebrate 60 years of life! Had breakfast here the mornings we were there and loved it. Theresa and Katrina were tip top shape ensuring we had everything we needed, and the country ham, scrambled eggs...More

Wow, what a great breakfast spot. The biscuits were light and fluffy, the very best kind. The grits were perfection, the right consistency and full of flavor. I'm not a fan of white flour gravy, but the sawmill gravy was very good. The fresh sausage...More

Visited the other location on another trip. Was staying downtown so walked over. Had to wait a bit but it was a Sunday morning. Well worth the wait

We ate a wonderful breakfast at the Blue Plate. You get too much food and the prices are so reasonable. Our waitress was so attentive and nice. The only downside was the 45 minute wait to get it. We thought our wait was 20 minutes...More

Wonderful place for breakfast! The biscuits and gravy area always wonderful! As are their omelets and their hash browns. If it is a busy weekend downtown, be prepared to wait for a table for 30/45 minutes.

Very friendly staff, warm and inviting atmosphere, and solidly good food ensure you won't be disappointed with breakfast at Blue Plate. We were in Memphis two days; we had breakfast here one of them--we should have eaten here both days! Prices are very reasonable.

Went twice...once for lunch and once for breakfast. First, meal sizes are such that you can share. Ridiculously huge. So much food going to waste on every table... The catfish nuggets basket is to die for. Really the best catfish I've had in forever. Fried...More
