Uniformly one of the best breakfasts in Huntsville -- or pretty much anywhere else. Excellent menu, superb service, pleasant, helpful employees. Highly recommended!!

Blue Plate has been around Huntsville for a long time. It's homecooked, southern comfort food at its best. Usually on the weekends for breakfast they have a line but otherdays of the week breakfast and lunch are doable without a wait. The waiters/waitresses are personable....More

A large group of us stopped here for breakfast. The breakfast burrito was tasty and filling! And if you come on a Saturday you should order the cocoa biscuits, which are over-the-top delicious, if you can handle something sweet at breakfast.

Finally got to go to Blue Plate cafe and food was good but it was very overpriced for a meat and three.

Have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. Today we enjoyed the chicken fried steak and several side dishes. The butter beans, corn, grilled squash and mashed potatoes and gravy were all excellent. Service was super fast and friendly. Prices were very reasonable.

Cute place, nice people, and the kind of comfort food we love, but unfortunately we both thought several items were too salty. Maybe it's just our personal taste, though, because there were already lots of dinner customers by 5:00 p.m.

We had lunch here while visiting from out of town. The menu was filled with home-style cooking items like chicken-fried steak and pot roast. I ordered the Blue Plate Special which allowed me to pick a meat and 3 sides so you can sample a...More
