“If you don't mind a crowd...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

This is a good place - always packed. Down home cooking - very good. Sweet tea - just right. Help very efficient. Tough to find parking.

“Good home cooking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Very good plate lunches, like your mom's home cooking. It's normally pretty crowded at lunch, so go very early or late.

“A Huntsville Icon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

The best place for breakfast in Huntsville, hands down. Lunch is excellent, too. Parking can be a challenge because the place is so busy.

“Super Meat and Three”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

This place is wonderful and a great local place for good southern food at a reasonable price. Breakfast and lunch are both excellent and priced right. Go early for lunch or after the lunch rush - otherwise you will wait.

“Who knew...???”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

After living in Huntsville for seven years, today was the first time that we have eaten at the Blue Plate Cafe and it certainly will not be the last. This establishment is top shelf. It is super clean, the staff is friendly and extremely attentive and the food is without par. My wife and I had two huge omelets, coffee, toast and fresh made biscuits for under $20.00. Both omelets were fluffy; loaded with ingredients and most importantly almost totally grease free. These omelets were so big that we had to bring half of them home! We will be back and so should you. Travel safe.
