Went to the Blue Plate for Breakfast on Saturday morning!! Great food - breakfast burrito was awesome. My husband literally had everything in the burritos and he's a hard guy to fill up! Loved it! I had the classic blue plate which was very filling! The biscuits were extremely good too! Flakey, warm and not too salty! Would go there... More

My fiancé and I are night shift, we don't have a lot of options for sit down "dinner". So it's nice to have them open so early and their food is so delicious! They even offer to-go and a daily special for dinner! Staff is always friendly and quick to deliver the food.

I've been to the Blue Plate on numerous occasions and have never been disappointed. The menu is replete with Southern favorites "Grits, Cheese Grits, Biscuits/w Country gravy, etc.) I usually have ordered a three ingredient omelet. Delicious! Service is both efficient and friendly. Simply by observation, you know it's going to be good, by the number of locals who repeatedly... More

No matter what you want you can find it at Blue Plate! The servers are down to earth and seem to genuinely enjoy what they do. They are helpful as well. A large crowd never throws them for a loop or frustrates them. The food is the best. You truly feel like you're eating at your Mother's kitchen table. The... More

Blue Plate had a cozy feeling and quaint. The staff was friendly and the service was superb. Mia waited on my table and did an excellent job. I had the Specialty Plate with Green Beans, Black-eyed peas, and fried okra with cornbread. Reasonably priced for one meat and three sides. Home cooked taste. Whenever I return to Huntsville Blue Plate... More

The Blue Plate Cafe is my "go to" spot in Huntsville for breakfast and lunch. Traditional Southern cooking with friendly service. It is so popular, you may have trouble finding a parking space. Worth the wait for a parking space or a table. Go to the counter if you are in a hurry.

Nice server. Quick service and seating. Breakfast was okay but short of spectacular. For a basic breakfast and juice, it's fine.

Blue Plate is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I have only been there for breakfast. It is very good. They have a very good variety of choices. Eggs, pancakes, and also lighter foods. The biscuits and cheesy grits are my favorites. My husband likes the cheesy hash browns. This is a large restaurant, so wait time is short.
