“Comfort Southern Food All In One Place”
Reviewed July 27, 2014 via mobile

Blue Plate Cafe is amazing! Lively, kind, and delicious food! 4 or 5 specials of the day, and that's about all you can order! Everything was amazing, and I cleaned my plate. Can't wait to go back and enjoy their other specials! Amazing southern food. Just go and try it yourself!

“A place to enjoy an unhurried meal”
Reviewed July 25, 2014

Downtown Huntsville has only a few good places for breakfast or lunch. Most restaurant are the big chains, but I was totally please with the Blue Plate Café. The service is quick and caring. The food is good and wholesome, while the prices are in line with normal expectations. But the sweet tea is what really made this pleasurable dining. The tea a southern staple not too sweet but sweet enough to be cool and relaxing on a hot muggy day.

“We eat here a good bit”
Reviewed July 23, 2014 via mobile

We're locals and have been eating here for years. All the food is true southern food and it's delicious. My favorites are chicken & dressing, dumplings, hash brown casserole, squash (only on certain days), strawberry shortcake (Monday only). Those are my favs but I've never had a bad meal here. Breakfast is great too. This is where the locals eat for those out-of-town folks reading this. You will feel like you've won the lottery if you get a parking spot between 11:30 and 1:30 Monday through Friday, so get here early. I've never had to wait over 30 min for a table. Service is always excellent.

“Wonderful Breakfast”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

We ate here this morning for breakfast. The food was great and cooked to our liking. Eggs, omelets, gravy, bacon...it was all very good. I want to go back and try their pancakes and french toast, too. The waitress was very sweet and did a wonderful job.

“Fantastic Breakfast!”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

I recently visited the Blue Plate Cafe for breakfast and it was a great experience. The food was good Southern cooking, the sweet tea was great, and the employees were very friendly and attentive. The prices are good and your drinks are never empty. Definitely recommend!
