Breakfast before flight

Quirky little diner provided a delicious meal before our flight home after a week of skiing. Found the Blue Plate with TripAdvisor and was very happy that I did. A nice selection of breakfast items that include eggs, biscuits/gravy, pancakes was served by a happy staff. I had the Gordon combo... read more

Went on a Saturday AM around 11:30am....crowded! Got a seat outside in enclosed area, waitress was an absolute idiot! Looking at the wait staff I actually decided to not eat as I was honestly afraid of food poisoning. The other 2 in my party had food, one had a breakfast and the other ordered a slice of pie....the breakfast came... More

This restaurant is just amazing - they have excellent food that has a lot of flavor. My favorite thing to get here is their omelets. Hands down - best breakfast in town. The place is always packed, but they move people through fairly quickly. I highly recommend!

We ended up at Blue Plate as a recommendation from the brake mechanic a few blocks away for where to go while our brakes were fixed - he said it was the best breakfast in SLC and they did not disappoint! Hands down the best eggs benedict I've ever eaten out - just got the traditional but their twist was... More

This was our favorite restaurant when we lived in SLC. The mix of food is what I would translate to comfort food. For us, a trip to Utah cannot be complete without a visit here. They are vegetarian friendly. The huevos rancheros is phenomenal (what I always get). They have a veg-friendly benedict. Their prices remain very good in proportion... More

My wife and I went here and loved it. The service was good, the food was delicious and good quality, especially for the low price. It isn't too often you can have a good, filling meal with your spouse for under 20 dollars, but you can here!

Whenever I come to SLC, I try to fit in a breakfast at the Blue Plate Diner. They have now added on an `addition' for added seating. Parking on the street is simple enough. This is a real diner with the old soda fountain and booths, though I don't know that the menu is the same:) We ate the breakfast... More

Place has that Portland Oregon, "keep it weird" vibe. like the atmosphere and the classic diner look but the food didn't stand up. Had breakfast and both of us were disappointed in the eggs. Omelet was only okay, Eggs over easy were not good. Egg white itself was a bit rubbery and they were totally flavorless. Maybe the eggs were... More
